Porto will make you Rethink Port (and Portuguese wines). Seriously, when was the last time you ordered a glass of port, or even a Portuguese wine? We just don’t drink it in America. Visit Porto and the Douro Valley and you may be a convert. First, Porto is a hip city. It hosts awesome music festivals, has insane restaurants (sorry, Argentina, but the Portuguese may even top you when it comes to grilling), and is home to fabulous hotels. The many port houses and wine bars will convince you to ship cases of the stuff back home. Porto is the jumping off point for the Douro Valley. One visit and you’ll see why it rivals Bordeaux, Napa and Tuscany when it comes to scenery, food, and wine.
