Vineyarsds in Alto Douro have an ancient history. Several archaeological discoveries and documents evidence the persistence of the region`s wine culture, which goes back to the early centuries of our era. However, the description of Port Wine arises only in the second half of the seventeenth century, when it was discovered by English traders, who spread its fame throughout the world. Since then it has continued to win new customers and markets and there is now an annual consumption of 120 million bottles worldwide. It is a fortified wine produced in the Douro Wine Region, which, by its high quality and ripeness, wins the title of generous. It presents different characteristics, depending on the crops used and the years of aging, assuming the names Tawny, Reserve, Vintage and LBV (Late Bottled Vintage). The best production occurs in more arid hillsides and nearby the river. The region is dry, sharply continental and is separated from the zone of Atlantic influence by the mountains Marão Montemuro. Among the recommended varieties, are the white Malvasia Fina, or Donzelinho Rabigato, and the red Touriga Nacional, Tinta Amarela and Tinta Barroca.
