Photographer's Note

This is a simple and classic view of the Douro River at Ribeira, the famous Porto city old neighbourhood.

It was taken on a rainy and cold winter day and shows a Rabelo boat used in the past to transport the wine from the Douro Valley to the wine cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia, where the only authentic Port Wine is made and exported throughout the world.

The provided link introduces the official site of the Port and Douro Wine Institute where you can read the history of this famous wine.
