Sam­pling port In Por­tu­gal: The har­bour city of Porto, Por­tu­gal — http://www.vis­it­porto. travel — has an in­ter­na­tional air­port. River boats and trains from Porto to the wine­mak­ing re­gion around Pin­hao, about three hours away by rail, pro­vide vis­tas of the Douro’s vine­yards, but a car is es­sen­tial to tour the dozens of quin­tas; http://www.ivdp.pt and http://www.covela.pt . For port lodges in the city of Gaia see http://www.cavesv­in­hodoporto.com. You can fit a Douro quinta visit on a day trip from Porto; a fas­ci­nat­ing mid­way stop is the Foun­da­tion Eca de Queiroz, the house-mu­seum of one of Por­tu­gal’s cel­e­brated nov­el­ists that now also has a restau­rant fea­tur­ing dishes from de Queiroz’s times, http:// www.feq.pt .
