Travels to Douro Valley, Portugal

Internationally known, Port wine is one of the most important heritages in northern Portugal and it's only produced in Douro Valley, the first demarcated wine region in the world. Nominated World Heritage Site by UNESCO, here the climate, the sun exposure and soil type make the grapes unique. In a day trip from Porto, we headed out to Douro Valley for a full day of learning more about this old wine culture.

Stable

Stable offers a unique Swiss-American experience along the H St NE corridor. From Michelin Guide: "Transporting diners to the Alps, this warming and proud pearl is replete with exposed wood beams, cozy lighting and Swiss flags. It exudes that classic Alpine lodge feel, even if you’re more aprés-office than aprés-ski. Cream, butter and starch are the soul of this kitchen, not the exception, so don't expect a light meal."  Closest Metro is Union Station.
