It’s HOT in the Douro

A note from Graham’s Sales Director Euan Mackay

Left Malvedos at 07.00 am this morning just as the sun was peeking over the hills, no doubt another hot day in store. Yesterday the thermometer reached 42 degrees !! Are we really in September ? None the less the grapes in the vineyard seem to be holding up well which provided me with an excellent opportunity to explain the difference in taste between Touriga Nacional and Tinta Barroca to a group of Swedish retailers who had braved their way up from Pinhao to Malvedos by Barco Rabelo. Hejda !
