From the terrace of our home in Porto, we can look across the Douro River at all the wine caves. Since Porto is known for their Port Wine, we really needed to go check them out. There are many over there, but I had to go check out my “name sake” – Graham’s. Brothers William & John Graham came from Scotland to start their Port company in 1820. My paternal Grandfather was John Graham. Kirk & I took a water taxi across and then walked up the hill to the lodge. It was beautiful and the wine was delicious.
Afterwards, we walked back down to the gondolas and rode them up to the top of the bridge and walked back across. The views from there looking down the Douro River and across Porto were magnificent!

This way! It’s up the hill….
Look! John Graham was one of the founders. My Grandpa was John Graham… we’re probably related! LOL
