The Warmth of Portuguese Wines

Portugal has an exciting wine culture. Traditionally Portugal's greatest wines come from the northern part of the country where the town of Oporto gave its name to Port wine grown high up in the terraced vineyards of the Douro River valley (this is the same river that is called the Duero in Spain). Here are photos from the Douro region, and from one of my favorite sources for exciting white wines, Vinho Verde.
