So, just who are these Douro Boys?
Well, scroll down a bit, and you’ll be very surprised by what you find. First of all, the five winemakers are no longer “boys”, but fully-grown men and the women behind the scenes play no less important roles.
What started as a group of like-minded friends, thrived, then morphed into a globally acclaimed project. Since 2003 the five wine producers worked together with one goal: although the Portuguese Douro Valley is primarily famous for its traditional port wines, the Douro Boys realized early on that their dry red and white table wines are pretty amazing too.
Together they want to make the world aware of the table wine potential of their incredibly beautiful region and to “put it on the international wine map”.
As many connoisseurs around Planet Wine now know, the high quality of Douro wines is unquestionable. What makes the boys so successful in communicating their vision is the way they all enthusiastically pull together.
