Douro DOC

Portuguese wine

Douro is a Portuguese wine region in the Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro region, based on the Douro River. It is often referred to as the Alto Douro because it is situated upstream from Porto and is shielded from coastal influences by mountain ranges. As a Denominaço de Origem Controlada, the area has the highest wine classification in Portugal (DOC). Although the Douro is best known for Port wine, it also produces table wine. Usually, non-fortified wines are referred to as “Douro wines.”
