Today we cruised from the Inner Douro to Régua, a major port wine centre and the unofficial " Capital of Trade".

This region is known for its wine groaning and excellent vintages. The unique landscape offers exceptional growing conditions, despite the steep slops and difficult working conditions.

We spend a leisurely afternoon touring the Sandman Estate and Vineyard. I am very familiar with the wine process, but it was unique to watch the Port being produced. Today, I was also introduced to White Port! Its amazing!! In the end we decided to treat ourselves to a 10 year vintage port.
