THE NEW DOURO presents

Douro Primeira Prova 2019


The leading producers of the Portuguese Douro Valley have been working together for more than ten years as ‘The New Douro’, organizing together events worldwide. From 2019 on, they will even increase their cooperation and host together an annual release tasting for wine professionals from all four corners of the world in the Douro Valley. This event is called Douro Primeira Prova (Douro’s First Tasting) and will include the new releases, which can be tasted and scored in the form of a ‘silent tasting’.
