The Douro Valley is by far one of the most beautiful and breathtaking landscapes in the world with its undulating hills blanketed in grapevines, figs, pears and olives. Fruit literally bursts from its soils despite its steep incline and harsh climate. It’s a place of solitude, of calm, of beauty, of community. The Douro Valley is a natural haven known by few, but for those who have traversed its landscape, it’s cherished!
Which is why a powerful initiative has begun to promote the Douro Valley around the world. The EmpreenDouro Network, consisting of 28 entities, have gathered together to encourage and promote entrepreneurship in the Douro Valley via job creation, communication, financial support, initiatives, etc. It’s a lovely initiative, made even more attractive through the Douro Entrepreneur Award (Premio Douro Empreendedor), which aims to highlight innovative and creative projects focused on the Douro Valley.
