Here is what you will live
If you're looking for a specialized and highly focused wine day tour from Porto, this is the solution for you. With this experience you'll visit 2 wineries and discover the real secrets of wine making in this UNESCO HERITAGE SITE AREA.
The Douro Demarcated Region spreads along 250.000 hectares along the Douro River basin. A powerful river with 927 kms since its spring in Picos de Urbión until it meets the Atlantic Ocean in the city of Porto. In its way it passes by several wine regions, being the Douro Demarcated Region the most impressive with its deep valleys and narrow canyons. The soils are mainly derivative from schist, with a granite geologic formation in its borders. The region has very cold Winters and very hot and dry Summers. Due to the wide variety of micro-climates, the region is divided in 3 sub-regions that differ greatly from each other in terms of temperature, rainfall, dimension of the property, planted area, etc.: Baixo-Corgo, Cima-Corgo and Douro Superior.
With pick up at 9 am, you first stop will be Quinta Do Portal (or similar). This is a family fine winemaking company that embraced with passion the “Boutique Winery” concept. We proudly produce DOC Douro wines, premium Port Wines and Moscatel. Their wine production is based on the diversity of the Douro. A big variety of grapes, different altitudes, different solar expositions, soils with different compositions.
Lunch is included in this wine day tour and then you'll go to Quinta do Bomfim for the second wine tasting experience. Quinta do Bomfim is one of the Douro Valley’s finest vineyards and it represents the heart of the company’s greatest Ports, having provided the main structure for Dow’s Vintages since it was acquired in 1896. The property is situated in the centre of the best wine-producing area, which offers an ideal balance for achieving great wines. A few steps away from Pinhão train station and the pier, Quinta do Bomfim provides unique moments of proximity to the river with stunning vineyard landscape around.
You'll then get back to the hotel with a much better understanding of this amazing Wine Region!
