We arrived in Porto in the pouring rain, prepared to spend our last few days in Portugal walking the hills of the city. Instead, we found refuge from the downpour in one of the port wine lodges across the Douro River.
The lodges are clustered in the Vila Nova de Gaia area and most offer tours and tasting. The tours are interesting, but after the second one, we realized that they all tell you the same information. At least now we know the difference between a tawny and ruby.
Here’s the famous Pont D. Luis bridge on our final, and less rainy day. Next stop: Spain (again)
