It's an hour's drive. However, being so scenic (vistas of river below, vineyard terraces, villages), you might want to do it as a 3 hr trip, stopping off en route. If you go into the centre of São João da Pesqueira, it has a nice little historic square. From there, I'd also recommend taking a detour down to the Douro river at the Cachão da Valeira dam/gorge. You can walk up to a little chapel on the top of a hill for a great view. There is more information on Pinhão and the Douro here: http://www.hideawayportugal.com/modules/property/region_detail-3.htm
