Back to the Douro Roots Experience
09:00 – Guest’s pick up at their Porto accommodations
The driving time from Porto to the Douro Wine Valley will take approximately 1h20 minutes: half by highway and the other half taking a beautiful foothill road that will show you the incredible landscape of the surrounding areas of the Douro Valley.
We will use the traveling time to immerse you in the Douro Valley cultural and historical background and give you the necessary inputs so you’ll be able to understand the most important factors that contributed over thousands of years to forge and sculpt this singular Wine Country. The soil, the climate, the grape varieties, the viticulture styles, winemaking processes and the people who occupied the territory. Like a dear guest of us once said: “If you don’t see it, you’ll not believe it!”
11:00 – Guided visit to a small, family owned DOC Douro Wine Estate followed by Wine tasting (DOC Douro Reds & White Wines)
13:00 – One hour of shared boat ride in the middle of the Douro Vineyards, into a place where the road ends along side the Douro River.
You will be offered on board an exclusive and delicate 40-years-old Tawny Port paired with homemade Douro Valley roasted almonds.
This delicacy results from a delicate and fine blend worked by us after selecting the best wines from local producers, collected directly from the cask.
14:30 – Lunch moment in a traditional local restaurant in a typical Douro Vineyard Village. There, our guests will be able to discover, taste and savor the secrets of the most delicious Douro Valley homemade culinary.
16:30 – Guided visit to a boutique Port Wine Winery where the grapes are still tread by feet like 200 years ago. Here you’ll have the possibility to walk through the terroir and learn and taste the different styles of Port Wine.
19:00 – Arrival at your accommodations and end of our services.
