We are at km 41 on the Douro River, starting from its mouth. It has run hundreds of kilometers to this point, and is part of our identity.
Where the river begins, Duero is its name – in the Urbion Peaks, 2160 meters high. From the Peaks to the mouth, alongside the city of Porto, it flows for virtually 900 km (mostly through Spanish lands, but also international waters, finally arriving to Portugal).


The river's hundreds of kilometers take it through incredibly diverse areas, and this is true not only of the weather and the scenery but also of the people and the gastronomy.
And this is why we would be so bold as to say that, when it comes to gastronomy, the Douro River is the most interesting river in Europe; here, we are constantly in touch with all axes of Iberian cuisine – olive oil, cheese, cured sausages, wine and bread.


There is an effervescence of flavors along the Douro – from Ribera del Duero, Cigales, Toro and Arribes del Duero DOC wines, meaning their designation of origin is controlled, with the latter located in a natural park that is part of the biosphere reserve, to the award-winning Douro DOC wines, vinho verde and, reaching the mouth of the river, the famous Port wine, the first controlled designation of origin in the world, whose wine region was once explored by the Romans.
From the banks of the Douro comes also one of the most appetizing delicacies, Jamón Ibérico, as well as a variety of high-quality olive oils, cheeses and bread.


Here, on the river bank, a few kilometers away from its mouth, this seems to be the right place for a journey through the extraordinary and unique flavors of the Douro.
But we want to do it in an unexpected way – a journey through time and life, from youth, through maturity and into old age.
