A journalist from "Saveur", an American gourmet food & wine magazine, was in Northern Portugal from September 10th to 15h.
In company of Cindy Rynning, author of the blog "Grape Experiences", the reporter of the gastronomic publication, Katherine Greenwald, visited Porto, Minho, and Douro to gather information about the Portuguese "Wine Culture".
The journalist and blogger were accompanied by Associação de Turismo do Porto during their visit to Ponte de Lima. In the Minho city, they enjoyed a tour in the village and a cruise on the Lima River aboard a "Água Arriba", a typical boat of the region.
The press trip was a result of a contact from Turismo de Portugal and was supported by the Ponte de Lima Municipality.
Porto Convention & Visitors Bureau is a non-profit organization founded in 1995 by a group of institutions that wanted to develop the Tourism Industry in Porto and Northern Portugal.
