Portugal's Wine Country

Hosted by Karine Hagen

In 1756, Portugal's Douro Valley was established as the world's first protected wine-producing region, and is today a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Even though less than 20 percent of the land is farmable, there are 155 different grape varieties grown in Portugal. Join Karine Hagen for a tour through the country's rich viticultural heritage.
