As a UNESCO World Heritage Site and producer of one of Portugal’s largest exports, Alto Douro must be included when planning a trip to Portugal’s green, rolling north. Here are a few spots to sample quality wine and enjoy the country’s most beautiful landscapes.

1. Adega Cooperativa de Favaios

Wine Bar, Pub, Pub Grub, Portuguese

This last spot is a bit off the beaten track. The village of Favaios lies north of the Douro River, a distance from the other vineyards on this list. Farmers from the Favaios region have formed a cooperative to market and sell the Favaios Moscatel wines, in addition to other varieties (including Port). At the Cooperativa, visitors can learn more about the location’s history and the wines produced.
