Finally it rained in the Douro, but only in a small part of it. In our vineyards almost nothing, but in Alijó, which is in the north of S. João da Pesqueira/ Pinhão, it rained heavily. Actually, too much. Check this video from this morning and you will see the damage caused by hailstone to the grapes. Jump to the minute 18.47 and if you don’t understand Portuguese you can at least see the images.
