    The Year of 2017:

     

    This has been a very warm, dry year in the Douro. From December 2016 onwards, every month had substantially below average rainfall apart from a 30-mm (1.2-in) downpour and some localised hail on the afternoon of 6 July. This rain swelled the year’s rainfall figures, but was of minimal benefit as most of the water simply ran off the vineyards in torrents, causing some damage to terraces.
