Alto Douro Wine Region (UNESCO WHS)
I received this really amazing and informative card of Portugal's Douro wine region from my facebook friend, Paula. Douro is one of the oldest wine growing regions in the world with wine being transported down the Douro River on flat bottomed "rabelo" boats and then stored in warehouses at Porto. The region has been a UNESCO WHS since 2001.
