Any opinions expressed on this site are our own, based solely on personal experience. We are not affiliated, nor give priority to, any company, organization, or government. We believe in keeping our content unbiased, only referencing specific products or services when we have personal experience to back our comments and opinions. While we accept things such as wine sample donations, it is under a strict no obligation policy: we only mention a wine or estate when we feel it is relevant. When we do receive compensation, complementary services or products, the post is clearly indicated as being sponsored.

Wine Donations

We accept wine sample donations, however, we are not obligated to promote, endorse, or discuss any brand; we reference a sample wine at our own discretion, once we have tasted and approved it, and only when it is relevant to the site and our readers. Content based on wine donations are clearly indicated. We do not rate any wine, and do not plan to do so in the future.

Sponsored Content

Articles that contain our own unbiased views and opinions, and include either: a reference to a donated wine or complimentary product or service, or a premium advertisement space for a relevant sponsor. These posts are clearly indicated, and are in no way different from our usual content, except that they have a link or reference a product that is relevant to our readers.

Some products and services are available through affiliate links, which gives us a small commission if you make a purchase via our referral. This is an important source of revenue for funding Douro Profundo. These links will always be relevant to our readers, and will never be intrusive to the website or content.


Comments are approved and removed at our own discretion. Comments containing any of the following will not be tolerated, and will be deleted immediately, without notice: SPAM of any kind, infringing other user’s privacy, violating the law, uncivilized language and behavior (implied or blatant).
