WINES FROM DOURO VALLEY The combined morphological, climatic and agrological features in Douro valley region have led to a very special ecology, and have given a birth to an environment which has been used by vine to refine the quality of its product- one that is unique: Port wine. Port is a generous wine that is produced exclusively in Douro Valley. The demarcated region of Douro is the most impressive, richest, most trouble and least known region of Portugal. So impressive that all who behold it open their eyes in wonder. So rich, that it produces the liquid gold that is famed all over the world.. No better description could be given of his rugged mountain region, where man, by dint of labor and stubbornness has crushed and transformed in earth. The inclination of the schistose soil, the arrangement of the mountains and the peculiarity of its climate set Douro valley apart from other wine regions. I wish you a fantastic day and hope to see you one day in Douro Valley. Warmest regards. Victor Marques vitoriakoi skype vitoriakoi

"Victor, Given your sterling quest for understanding and truth-seeking, I want to share this presentation with you and your honorable colleagues and friends: QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DOMICILE, VENUE OR LOCUS OF BELOVED INTELLIGENCE? In deep respect, Andres Agostini"

TechVisionary Andres Agostini (Andy)

"Honorable Mr. Victor Marques' literary work is right on the matters of the utmost relevance to Earth continued viability. I have no wonder why he embraces so humanely matters of rigorous entrepreneuring, as well as with grace and skill. Along some lines, Victor cleverly, and with a wealth of wisdom, indicated that the right path to conceive ourselves (we humans) as unique but as equals in every fundamental and essential. Thus, we could get rid of so many things that take us part, engendering layers and layers of divide. Victor's words of grace and wisdom are always truly welcome, because - you know what - they're never hallow or unmeant for. He means what he communicates. I, incidentally, admire the way he articulates language in such a profound and meaningful way. Out of some of his thoughts I have been blessed to learn from. Thanks, Victor. Those wishing a pre-view of this "in progress" work, dealing with Earth's problems and solutions in a hopeful way, is viewable at Futuretronium ® Best regards, Andres Agostini "

"(English and Spanish) Most Honorable Mr. Victor Marques is an intellectually engaged entrepreneur, who is also committed to the finest craft of world-class poetry writing. In an era in which everything seems to be into a salient frenzy and when you expect it least, Victor communicates with you and in the process tenders you words of millinery wisdom. He does it gracefully, dexterously and in unconditional harmony. Don't get me wrong! Victor - a major goodwill ambassador of his prestigious country, Portugal, -is an indefatigable professional that - given his focus and energy - always goes several extra miles to tender you a gesture of enlightenment and grace. All of his professional occupations are carried on, through times and in a sustained way, with great care, gentleness and solemnity. Mr. Marques is also a gentleman into solemnity and kindness, thus humanizing the daring aspects of business today. I hope to spend some time of rest and entertainment in Victor's hospitality complex, ranked second to none worldwide. His writing abilities remind me of Mr. Ernest Hemingway. This endorsement is humble response to the systematic, yet institutional merits that Mr. Marques is habitually planting, literally. In great respect and kindness, Andres Agostini (Spanish) El Honorabilísimo Sr. Víctor Marques es un emprendedor corporativo con un compromiso activado e intelectual de primer nivel. En las artes más sofisticadas y sublimadas, Víctor es un exponente de vanguardia en la literatura poética. En una era de pertinaz frenesí y hasta anarquía, y cuando usted menos se lo espera, Víctor toma contacto con usted y en el proceso diligentemente le procura palabras de marcada sabiduría. Él le extiende un gesto de cortesía con gracia y destreza que redunda en armonía en superlativo. ¡No se llame a engaños! Víctor es el mayor embajador de buenos oficios de su prominente y culta nación, Portugal. No obstante el ritmo incesante en sus deberes profesionales, y debido a su nivel de concentración y energía, él irá a hasta cualquier larga distancia en tanto y cuanto pueda dedicar un gesto de ilustración y paz. Todas sus líneas de prácticas ocupacionales y profesionales, en forma sostenida y de cara a cualesquier desafíos, son implementadas con gentileza y solemnidad. El Sr. Marques es un caballero que presta cuidado meridiano a la gentileza y la solemnidad, así también imprimiendo un sentido humanístico efectivo a los aspectos del quehacer diario que requieren los negocios. Espero poder dedicar algún tiempo al descanso y entretenimiento en el complejo hotelero de Víctor, de talla universal. Sus habilidades literarias evocan en mí el sentido de respeto que me merece el señor Ernest Hemingway. Doy este testimonio con base únicamente a los méritos de los gestos institucionales que para con mi persona el Sr. Marques amablemente ha tenido. Afectísimo, Andrés Agostini "

"Victor is awesome, he is the best. A warm and genuine person, with heaps of humanity and a great sense of humour too. Victor makes you see the good in life and in our world - we often don't see 'everything' we are so caught up in our fast paced world. Victor kind of makes time slow down for you, makes you take notice of what is beautiful and pure. Thanks Victor - you are a true and real connection. Proud to be able to call you 'friend' Lesley Aveyard"

TechVisionary Andres Agostini (Andy)

"Mr. Victor Marques is a splendid professional and a responsible business owner, responsible with his community, responsible with his nation, responsible with Europe, and responsible with the World at large. He could teach us all some optimum seminars on customer services among many other indispensable subject matters. Furthermore, Victor is humble, intelligent, and constructive, as well as unprecedentedly welcoming and accommodating. Victor offers Earth the most sophisticated services and products imaginable with an optimum quality above and beyond world-class. I contacted him last December 2009 on some matters for my most trusted British colleagues, and he immediately got me in contact with Honorable Mr. Nicholas Collis, who — on behalf on both enterprising efforts — facilitated me and them an immediate solution. I passed it on to the original incumbents. And I will keep referring Victor, because of his lines of professional practice, and because he is a great example of what quality service must always be in every industry. Victor and Nicholas — who deal with people in fairness, transparency, courtesy, kindness and business-like mentality — by just being true to themselves could dictate a canonical landmark lecture to a great deal, not all and yet too many, of the uncouth and untoward ones in the northern quadrant of the Western Hemisphere. Both Victor and Nicholas are giving me - by their systematic professional executions - many relevant reasons to amplify international, even further, the trade of their finest services and products. FOR THEIR WISEST CONSIDERATION, I WILL START CONTACTING SOME POTENTIAL WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTORS OF THEIR PREMIUM SERVICES AND PRODUCTS THEY OFFER IMMEDIATELY, LITERALLY. Nicholas and Victor are the foremost, seriously speaking, Goodwill Ambassadors of their respective countries, United Kingdom and Portugal. I must meet them in due course and spend some time in a future trip that I will be scheduling both to Portugal and the United Kingdom. I grant Victor and Nicholas full recommendation without having any mental reservation at all. In kindness and in gratitude (sic), Andres Agostini (Main Site) (Success Tenets) (Press Room) At = Arlington, Virginia, USA"

" I am writing testimonials for all those Ecademates who have really meant something to me in 2009. Victor you are one of Gods blessings for sure. You are always there to support and to be a friend. Your poems and photographs are inspiring and you share your warm message and invitation to visit with you with generous, caring and open arms. When Jay and I met you at your wine tasting in Swansea in May 2009 it was a blessing we will treasure. Your wine and port is simply exquisite and worthy of all recommendation. We enjoyed the port you gave to us as a gift, sharing it with our family on our holiday at the end of May and raised our glass to you Victor, a wonderful man and an incredible networker. We are so happy to count you as a friend going into 2010 and wish all the best that life can bring to you in Duoro Valley and beyond. I am looking forward to putting together your feature for the community challenge club in 2010 and presenting it to the community that you mean so much to! God Bless, with love Ces xxx email: "

Nicholas Collis

"Victor, whom I met nearly two years ago, is without doubt a man for all seasons, a passionate winemaker & poet, an unstinting networking marketeer and above all a true and loyal friend! Many thanks to you, Senhor Vitor, for orchestrating yet another memorably fantastic visit to the Douro last week - which for me enveloped yet more fun & laughter, superb wines & tasty food, along with the aspect of sharing some new breathtaking scenary, sampling new wines & an unforgetable experience among friends and in part, new faces too. In all, you have inspired me to say that everyone should sample the virtues of the Douro Valley, the Flor do Monte hotel and many examples of the Vitoria Koi brand - the "fruits of your labour" in abundance. Best hug to you & your family, Nico "

"Victor has been one of my contacts since very early in my time on Ecademy. I'm a big fan of his poetry. Today, out of the blue, he posted a testimonial for me. The words in it are so fitting at a time when I'm reviewing my business and personal life. My question was, how did he know? I think that's Victor! An asset to anyone's network. Thank you for being part of mine, Victor. Rosemary"

As a great connector, Victor also owns a global network with Ambassadors who are dedicated to promote his tasty port wines from Douro Valley.

"Munich, 28/09/09 To whom it may concern: I have known Mr. Victor Marques in the Internet as a good quality wine and olive oil dealer and owner of a paradisiacal Holiday Resource in the North of Portugal. Mr. Victor Marques has always been a friendly and enthusiastic ecademist and he has always conducted himself in a respectful manner! Victor is incredibly skilful in improvising elegant and meaningful poems. I wish to continue relying on our friendship and would recommend him as a business partner or as friend in all your enterprises. Truly, mjf "

Lucien Meert

"Victor Marques was a pleasure to meet personally and spend time with. The human connection was reinforced as we met in the Douro Valley in end of August. We were already well connected through Ecademy, but felt much closer then. He was kind enough to dedicate 2,5 days to my visit and showing me around the local SPA, his vineyards, wine makes developed by him, his other products such as olive oil, hotel, family, local beautiful scenery and people. I acquired a good knowledge of the local culture, and enjoyed going around picking grapes and figs with him, despite the high temperatures felt. We both are believers that real networkers meet, I left Douro Valley and Victor with the promise that I would return in October with some business referrals and to bring friends, maybe at grape harvest time, which should be very educational and agreeable time to visit this part of Portugal! Victor your Porto wine was divine, keep up the good work, the world needs men like you who put their expertise and love in all they do. God Bless you!!!!!!!!!! Lucien"

Bill Warry

"Victor - Today I have a double testimonial for you. The first is actually for your new wine Vinho do Tua tinto. My Bulgarian friend, Nikolay came round the other day to see about Diamondbriting my boat. We tried out that bottle of Vinho do Tua you gave me. Now analysing that a wine has hints of blackberry or aromas of raspberry is all very interesting but the true test of a wine is how much you enjoy drinking it and if you find it easy to finish the bottle, and if, even if for reasons of sobriety you don't take any more, you would like to. I can tell you that bottle went down very easily and my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed it. My second testimonial is a rather belated one, but it is to say what an excellent host you were during our recent visit to the Douro documented in my blog of 30th June."

Saskia Buijs

"Victor is a very interesting and poetical person and above all very passionate for his work, which seems to be his true hobby. I am very proud to have him my network. A good businessman too, I believe! Pity I am not the buyer of wine ... Positive comments in all his testimonials I see. So it must be true!"

Nicholas Collis

"Victor is a true friend and as someone who shares his passion for well-made wines - the best Portuguese choice - should always be the Vitoria Koi brand, whether to share it with friends over a meal, a celebration or simply a good quaffing wine, because you'll be glad of their fruit, style & quality. Thank you for your kindness & care throughout my recent visit & look forward to many more fine experiences anon. Yours as always with a firm handshake, hugs and best regards Nicholas "

"Bonjour Victor, I am so sorry..... Just discovered your email today only so I bet it's too late... and anyway you see, I'm SO busy at the moment with horse breeding, gardening and preaparing my house to rent it for the summer season to tourists & not event time enough to PAINT ! Also my mail i so box full :-p even when i have a minute to answer to some emails.....I hardly find the ones I want to answer to (!) A bit late to thank you for your kind email response about your wines & olive oil but... Really glad you prefer quality to quantity & money only. I use olive oil each day & try to drink for some events or weekends only but If I had a chance to find your label in a shop around, I'd LOOOVE to celabrate my ( not sure yet but.... apparently on a very good way to success) futur (gorgeous 2nd foal birth in 2010 with a bottle of one of your wines to taste it next weekend with a couple of friends & family ! So, you'd forgive me purhaps for beeing SO rude ? I wrote a note to one of your contacts for you last month I think but not sure if you had the message or not... In any case, I thank you for your messages & for the nice poetry you shared on my testimonials page here. I don't write poetry.........& can't draw or paint you something now (!) ( but if one day you are interested in unique & colourful designs for some bottles of your olive oil or wine... "breeding" ;-) I'm your girl !) So I decided to copy this email in yours. Have a lovely day Gentleman ! Cheers, Jacqueline "Princesspiedsnus" "

"VICTOR MARQUES is the European "Wine & Olive Oil" Promotion Star as well as a sensitive insightful Poet. One cannot help but notice his entrepreneurial and promotional finesse within the Ecademy CyberSpace CommUNITY. There has to be a natural appreciation for his European "Wine & Olive Oil " products passion. Here in the ancient abORIGINAL DreamTime Land of OZ (Australia) we too are proud of our great Aussie Wine/Olive growing and making traditions. What really caught my attention with Victor was his compassion and empathy for "Cancer CREATIVITY Champions" when he shared a poem as a personal Testimonial about the cancer challenge experience that is a worldwide epidemic ordeal for Humanity today requiring positive healing Solutions. +Michael A Riddell, Artist/Producer/Writer Global Village CREATIVITY CENTRE Australia "

"Victor is a great man. I enjoyed his company at the International WellBeing Festival held in Swansea, on May 8th 2009 hosted by Carolyn Williams Lifestyle Online. The wine and port I tasted during the event was of high quality. It was disappointing I could not drink them as I was driving."


"Dear Victor My husband and I finally got back home from Swansea and we had to say how lovely it was to meet you and we enjoyed your care and of course your glorious wines, cheeses and olive oil. They glow with the heart and soul of the producer. We will definitely be sharing your joy with our friends and neighbours here in the North of England. Please keep in touch! Claire"

Simon Jones "Web Wizard"

"I had the pleasure of meeting Victor last Friday and sampled some of his wines and olive oil and have to say they certainly are something else. Victor is a perfectionist regularly checking the wine's temperature and keeping people well away if he thinks it's a little too warm. Both he and his 'global ambassador' are very genuine and passionate about their region and the liquid gold they produce from it. They are a pleasure to network with and I would highly recommend a connection. We left with a bottle of the Don Paio Velho white and the Tawny Port. Both of which are exceptional quality and didn't last long this weekend. :) <hic>"

"Hi Victor, It was lovely catching up with you yesterday at Carolyn William's event at the TwoCann cafe in Swansea. What gorgeous wines, olive oil and hospitality from you. I so appreciated your generous spirit and thank you for treating me to a cup of hot chocolate.:-) I look forward to seeing you again soon. Have a lovely day ahead and give my very best to your lovely wife and daughter. Kind regards and many blessings always Liz.x:-)"

Kenneth Payne

"Dear Explorer, Greatness called you and sometimes you do not recall, what it was that wakes us all up at night. Why do I cry so hard locking myself up as a genie in my own bottle, am I so scared of all my light? And then on that hungry day when we call out to uncork to ease the pain - a distant ship on the horizon. My fever... I can not explain this beauty with words - a sweet surrender, my sweat from my eyes on... Reds and maroons, waves silent from the toil, seeds from God, light greens sprung up for wine and oil. What else besides the poems of sex could I be in hear with our one ear listening to pressed up from the soil. I taste something, a golden heart - brave and strong - a silent Speed receiving In Grace I too often loose. I seek the comfort in the warmth of sharing our fine spiritual meal - with Victor bearing his passion - he is big news. Harmonic with the act of sacred secret sex - our eating and drinking life energy does open widely, sensual in between. Victor's friendship, not so distant between the colorful waves in my bottle, what a reflection of the dark via supreme. On those cold nights when I feel so alone in the illusion I call out to Victor a friend in harmony whose work is his love. We cook and we drink with a joy and cheer knowing deeply to give thanks, I raise my cup to Victor, before I shove. Godspeed in Grace! Ken "

"Dear Victor, I'm glad to be connected. You have a good profile which promises big things in the future. I rated you " Good" because liked you impressive profile,but if you're so kind please look at mine and put a testimonial for me also if I deserve one. The life is too beautiful and short to stay alone and not take the benefit of connections. The world is too large and with a lot of opportunities for everybody, but unfortunately only few people can see the "diamonds" from the sand. Meeting new people you'll surely be in a high advantage even few times you'll make bad choices. Let's start to make that difference. Looking into a log and both part benefit relation, and keep in touch. Sincerely best wishes from Romania, Ioan Clotea "

Mr. Victor Marques has a warm heart for people that pounds for hope and for the good and will not hesitate to put his business momentarily aside to tell you "God loves you!" as if he were His Messenger… If you sow good you will harvest good. This warmth comes from where the grapes and olives that make the wines and oil he deals with - a land at the end of the "rainbow", and if you just take a look at his profile you will know what I am talking about. I'm happy to have him as a friend and as an ecademist contact and I wish him happiness heath and success! Yours faithfully, mjf "
