Casa do Vilarinho de Sao Romao
The house is within the Douro demarcated region between Vila Real and Pinhao.

The grapes from the vineyards surrounding the house are used for the production of Port Wine. In years of good production, when the Port lodges cannot take all the production, the grapes are used to make table wine.

The private chapel was built in 1462. It was the main church for the village until the end of the century when the parish church was built.

The main house was constructed during the 17th Century and has had various additions as the estate became more important with the expansion of the Port Wine trade.

The house was bought by the present owners in 2001 and has been extensively renovated.
