When you’re visiting a town that gave its name to a revered style of wine -- that would be Porto and port wine -- you don’t want to scrimp on accommodations. You want a room in a hotel whose balconies deliver sweeping views of Portugal’s second-largest city. You want to overlook the Douro River and the famous railroad bridge that crosses it, the Ponte Maria Pia, designed by Mr. Wrought Iron himself, Gustave Eiffel. And you want a wine list chock-full of Portuguese wines at a Michelin-starred restaurant. In short, you want The Yeatman.
