About the film:
Life on the Douro comes as close as a film can in transmitting its wonders, and its complex and rich 300 years of history with direct ties to current wine production in Porto and the Douro valley. Interviews with 28 people, many direct descendants of those who founded the region, lends an oral history to Life on the Douro about the region’s development and present situation.
