The tour begins at your hotel or private adress in Porto by 8h30 am. You are picked up by an expert tour guide, driving a confortable air conditioned mini van and conduced to the Douro Valley. On the way our tour guide introduces you to the region by giving you some local information of the history, geography, traditions and of course wines!
Once in the Douro Valley visit a beautiful small winerie, starting with a guided tour to understand the essence of Port Wine, it's main styles and what makes it different from any other wine. Take a picture to a traditional "lagar" used to manually stomp the grapes and learn how the wine ages in small oak barrels and the large oak vats. Next, join a wine tasting session and try some of the best local wines in company of an expert guide, who tells you all you need to know about each wine.
After that you are driven to an amazing local restaurant by the riverside, where a typical lunch is served. Taste traditional Portuguese flavours with DOC Douro wine, while meeting other people from your small group tour.
Continuing the itinerary, head to the second small winerie, having some of the most amazing views of the region. The visit follows the same pattern as the first place but, of course, the wine changes. Start touring the place with a local guide, followed by a special wine tasting of 4 different wines.
At last but not least pay a visit to a third winerie in the small village of Pinhão and have a super special taste of a Vintage Port, with a scenic view over the Douro Valley, by the riverside.
You are back to your place in Porto by 6h30 pm, certain of having visited a magical site!
