Portugal’s Douro River flows like liquid gold

( CNN) Rio Douro roughly translates from Portuguese as “river of gold.”

The Douro cuts across northern Portugal, snaking 200 miles from rugged wilderness on the Spanish frontier to the old city of Oporto and the Atlantic beyond.

Grapes grown on its steeply rising banks have been sending forth legendary port wines for centuries. It may be the world’s most beautiful wine region.
