Vinhas Velhas 2015 Red

As we experience the Douro, as we feel the throbbing of the vineyards going along what was once considered the best and most beautiful road in the world for driving enthusiasts, we look at the slopes on either side and recognise some of the most famous names of farms and Douro and Port wine brands. Right in the middle of this road between Régua and Pinhão, in Adorigo already in the municipality of Tabuaço, we come across Quinta do Pôpa.
