More about this wine from Douro, Portugal
The Duoro Valley of Portugal may be the coolest and most beautiful wine region in Europe. The Duoro river meets the Atlantic in the town of Porto, which sports picturesque beaches, and the town is dotted with amazing restaurants to explore at night. A short train ride leads you to the town of Pinhão, which is home of the Quinta da Foz vineyard and winery. The train rides through the valley with terraced vineyards along the steep, rugged river banks of this idyllic wine growing region.

As you pull into the iconic train station at Pinhão, you’ll notice the classic hand-painted blue tiles (azulejos) depicting the grape harvest. The winery, owned by the Calém family since 1872, is just over the Pinhão River from the station. The juice is all about fresh red fruits i.e. cranberries and pomegranates on the nose that persist through the palate and electrically charge the lush tannins that seem to hang out forever. Everything is hand harvested. All of the wines are foot pressed in large granite lagares. This is truly an authentic wine of the Douro!

A Family Style Clambake is an excellent way to spend a fun evening with your fraaannnnnds. Most seafood calls for a white wine, but this Portuguese red breaks the rules.
