Douro Boys Seminar: Vintage 2004 vs. 2014
Hall 10 / Booth G22
It is no longer a secret that the Douro River Valley has in the past 20 years become one of the world’s elite wine producing regions. But what potential for further development lies in these terroirs and the wines, and what have growers learned in recent years?
The Douro Boys will deliver the answers in detail with five different examples (wines from both 2004 & 2014)
Monday 20.03.17 at 13.00. Limited availability! Please register with Andrea Schultes.

Douro Boys showered with accolades
Revista de Vinhos, Portugal’s most influential wine magazine, holds a star-studded gala – known as the ‘Portuguese wine Oscars’ – once each year. On the 12th of February, more than 1000 guests hailed and celebrated the stars of the domestic winemaking scene at a venue that is nothing short of spectacular: the Sangalhos velodrome, one hour’s drive south of Oporto.
And by the time the evening drew to a close, the Douro Boys had collected fifteen individual awards. This serves to underscore yet again the fact that their tireless efforts are on the right track, achieving the finest quality in wine while pursuing an attentive engagement with the precious traditions, landscape and culture of the Douro Valley. Certainly appropriate, that they are regarded as the standard-bearers for Portuguese wine.
