The Douro.

Roger Voss explores Douro Superior wines in Wine Enthusiast. “As Douro wines have developed in quantity and quality since the 1990s, so has Douro Superior…Despite being the largest of the three Douro regions (from west to east: Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo and Douro Superior), the Superior is also the most sparsely planted.
