I want to receive availability notice
A unique treasure, of great rarity, about agriculture and the rural world of the Alto Douro Wine Region. Through descriptions and images evoking the aromas and colours of the Douro landscape, let yourself be led through the world’s oldest demarcated wine region. Viticultura e Vinicultura stands out as one of the most important works by the 3rd Viscount of Vilarinho de São Romão, a leading figure in the study of agronomic techniques and sciences. Geography, veterinary science, wine processing, harvesting and transport represent some of the themes approached here by the author, ensuring this book also represents an accurate and very valuable repository of ethnographic history. ´Profusely illustrated, bound with a leather spine, this work includes remarkable photographs by Emílio Biel, a German publisher and photographer, who stands out as one of the pioneers of photography and collotype in 19th century Portugal.
