On this tour we'll get to know the history of Port wine, from its origin in the vineyards of the Douro Valley, visiting several wineries and trying their wines.
Having picked you up, we'll make our way eastwards, towards the Douro wine producing region.
The first stop is in Quinta do Portal, a small Portuguese villa constructed in the 18th century, on the confluence of the Douro and Tedo rivers. And having learnt how to make it, we'll enjoy the region's star product: the world famous Port wine.
The tour continues, stopping to eat in the city of Pinhão, where we will try some of the most typical and delicious local dishes, accompanied by local wine. And for dessert a relaxing cruise along the river, enjoying the spectacular views of the valley.
The next stop is Quinta do Bomfim, next to Pinhão on the North bank of the Douro. As well as enjoying breathtaking views, we'll enjoy another tour, on the elaboration of the particular wine from this vineyard, as well as tasting two fine port wines.
The excursion ends in Porto at 6:30 pm, either back at your hotel or at a point convenient to you.
When you book this activity, please choose whether you would like to make your own way to the meeting point next to San Bento Railway Station or if you prefer to reserve this activity with hotel pick-up option from Porto or Vila Nova de Gaia.
