The first part describes the region and the types of wines it produces, how they reflect the area and the grape varieties that are grown, what is traditional and what is modern, and how styles are evolving. The guide is illustrated with photographs of each area, topological maps to show the terrain, road maps to identify the locations of estates, and information on recent vintages. The second part has detailed profiles of the leading producers, including both the traditional shippers in Porto and the new independent producers at quintas in the Douro. Each profile describes the producer's aims for his wines, and the personality and philosophy behind them. References wines are suggested for each producer. Maps show the locations of the shippers in Vila Nova de Gaia and the Quintas in the Douro to help plan itineraries.
