Quinta do Vesuvio Estate of Symington Family Estates in Douro, Portugal

It is amazing how wines are made in this region of the world. These are “lagares” where the grapes are destemmed, pumped into these huge lake like things, everyone walks over them, extracting the best must. Then they break the seal or sombrero- hat with a long stick and collect the juice. What a great experience!

Special thanks to Pedro Leal da Costa of Symington Family Estates for showing us around.
