Douro river is rising – dams can’t sustain all the water

How many of you can recognize this road? And how many of you know where this dam is located? It has been raining a lot here and the soils can’t absorb more water. So all the water goes down the hill, quickly reaching the streams that take the water to the Douro river.

Is this damaging the vineyards? No, but I would say that we do not need more water for now, at least until March or April.

    The Douro will not produce red wine in 2010, all the juice will be white!
