OVER THE TOP / UNDER THE RADAR
This series of special features is designed to shine a spotlight on destinations and experiences not on the usual “tourist trail.” Enjoy!

Sandeman Port’s iconic cloaked emblem can be seen in every direction across the valley. Creepy or artful? You decide.

Every stop along the way leads to country wineries and tasting rooms resting on the hills just above the Duoro.
