My name is Pedro Cardoso. Born in Porto, I graduated as an engineer. My father's family is from Resende in the Douro region where we have a small wine estate that also produces cherries. After my marriage I was responsible for a Vinho Verde wine estate in the north of Portugal. My parents have also a house at Torreira in the Aveiro region. It is a wonderfull place where we use to spend our summer hollidays. Besides nature and agriculture, one of my passions has always been to discover people and places that now I want to share with you.
