The Peaceful and Lovely Vineyards in Portugal

Good morning, friends!

Another #treetuesday arrives and here I am with a new post for you tree lovers out there.

These shots were taken in the middle of nowhere, next to the town of Santa Marta de Penaguião, a little village in Portugal next to Douro River.

To reach these peaceful fields, where local farmers mostly plant and harvest grapes for wine production, one needs to follow a trail path from the centre of Santa Marta de Penaguião. The trail can only be followed on foot, as there are no paved roads in around 75% of the whole route...

This will lead you into a strange adventure through plains and mountains, on a circular path that will eventually take you back to the town.

There will be plenty of opportunities to grab some great landscape photos, from high spots. From upon these hills you can see the whole area around you, including a few huge luxurious houses which belong to the lucky vignerons who inhabit these lovely and quiet fields. 😊

These fields are wonderful and carefully planted... you can see lots and lots of vine rows, with a few paths surrounding them. The geometry of it all is well planned and not accidental.

It's quite tricky for the workers to harvest these vineyards. They need to drive their trucks through these narrow and winding roads, then fill 'em up and take the harvested grapes to the centre of the farms.

If the wine producers decide to play it cheap by maintaining a single truck, they'll end up wasting a lot of time and human resources... Usually, a truck is being filled while a second truck is on route, delivering a batch of grapes and making its way back. The idea is to optimise the workers time and keep them busy, instead of having them laying around idly while a truck doesn't return to the fields.

As you see, a lot of math is involved in this process, from the layout of the fields to planning the trucks routes back and forth. 🤓

These drivers are fast and furious... and, since the roads are not easy, accidents are bound to happen. One simply does not rally through narrow roads with a big truck filled with grapes. If you drive around these fields in the summer, be very careful with their incoming trucks. 😵

This is a gorgeous place for a quiet vacation.

Many tourists who come to Portugal enjoy visiting these vineyards... and it's also a place we locals enjoy. If you catch good weather and stay in a hotel or in a house with swimming pool, you can enjoy a nice relaxing end of afternoon, taking a refreshing bath with a lovely sunset. 🌞

I hope you liked my article and photos. Please leave a comment down below while you grab a glass of wine. Cheers! 🍷

I see that Portugal has many good places and landscapes to visit. This vineyard is just amazing, is it an upland? The temperature could change as regards the sea level. There is a chance to take whole photo of it from hills.

That's a pretty idyllic looking pasture. Of course, labouring in it probably wouldn't be all that fun, but it certainly looks great.

I am a fan of vineyards that haven't been able to see one in person. It is one of my long-time dreams to visit one.

If you come to Portugal, you'll find them scattered pretty much all over the country. 🍷

Hello @trincowski, how are you?

I don't have many words to describe the beauty of your photos, the mixture of the blue sky, the sunlight on the mountains, the various shades of green, the grapevines and even an Olive tree is fantastic. Congratulations.

Have you been to the Douro wine route? Along the way you can visit several wineries and do the wine tasting, it is amazing.

Regards

In my mind, this is a very stereotypical scene I picture in my head when I think of the Portuguese countryside. I can see why tourists flock here, is it close at all to where you live?

Your country is so pretty. I was planning a long (four months or more) sojourn there before the world had other plans. Still, I would like to visit in a year or maybe two. These photos make it that much more tempting. Do you live by the sea?

Hi, dear friend @trincowski

Beautiful landscapes from Portugal.

I love how tidy the plantings look.

I imagine the scents of the earth and its flowers and fruits.

Beautiful.
