​September is the month of the grape harvest par excellence. The time has come to gather the grapes, carry them in baskets, crush them and make what is known as the nectar of the gods: Wine.

To come to Porto is to get to know and try the world's best that's made in this area, this city representing the Douro, Port and Vinho Verde wine region in the Great Wine Capitals network.
