Who Is Pedro Pardinhas – The guy that only drinked water now enjoys wine!

Hi, I’m Pedro, one of the resident bloggers. I entered into the blog and into the wine as I entered Óscar’s and his family’s friendship, almost without noticing it. And now, after some months speaking about water, wine and trips, I decided to speak about myself. I’m lucky. Mostly because I believe that everything is […]

Treading Grapes in the Lagar – Traditional Vinification in the Douro

Harvest in the Douro is synonym of treading grapes in the lagar.
