the old vines in Douro

UntitledUntitledare absolutely a pleasure to visit and I’m amazed at how resilient and fruitful they still are. It’s exciting to see that the new generation of winemakers and viticulturists are still trying to preserve their national heritage and not ripping these indigenous vines out unnecessarily. The top pic is probably a Rabigato (white variety) and the bottom pic should be a Touriga Nacional (red variety).
