Spring Snows in the Douro Valley
There are some sights that you don’t often see and snow in the Douro Valley in Spring is one of them! Adrian Bridge, CEO of The Fladgate Partnership, shared these images with The Drinks Business earlier this week of snowfall at the entrance to one of the Fladgate Partnership’s wineries at São João da Pesqueira in the Douro taken on 31st March.
This time of year normally sees Spring sunshine and wild flowers, with snow pretty much unheard of. On the surface, it may just seem like an interesting phenomenon, but Adrian reminds us that these unusual weather conditions are evidence that the threat of climate change continues to be very much present.
