Our day begins in Porto, the unconquered city. We start the tour and point to the east, where the Alto Douro awaits us!
Our first stop in the Douro region will be at a Wine Estate in Favaios. Located between 1000 hectares of vineyards this centuries-old Quinta will ease you in with their white blend, to then blow you away with the delicious nectar of golden color that is the Moscatel wine inside its sanctuary.
We leave now for the historic Village of Pinhão where a regional lunch awaits us in a beautiful local restaurant, but on our way, we still get a chance of visiting one of the most beautiful viewpoints of the region.
Now, with your stomach filled, move into the next Wine Estate. Here you’ll get to understand how both Douro DOC Wine & Port Wine are made having the possibility of tasting both styles at an family-run Wine Estate. Understand how the effects of the region’s climate and rich soil influence the grapes, learn about the special storage techniques that result in these distinctive flavours and hear about the preparation of both unfortified and fortified wines.
Then, drive next to the river on one of the most beautiful roads in the world on the way to our final Wine Estate of the day. You will get to know a family-run Wine Estate that is a beautiful example of the range of extraordinary products you can get in the Valley as they produce Douro DOC and Port Wine, Olive Oil, and Nuts.
