Douro Roots Experience

The Back to the Douro Roots Experience will provide our guests the privilege of a more intimate contact with the Douro Valley people, places, culture and the traditional flavors of the Douro Valley Wine Country.

09:30 – 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 DOC Douro Wine Estate. One of the new Douro hidden gems producers.
DOC Douro Reds & White wines and Douro Olive Oil tasting;

13:00 – Traditional lunch moment at the award winning “Toca da Raposa Restaurant” in the typical Douro Vineyard Village of Ervedosa.

At Toca da Raposa, you’ll taste and savour some of the most authentic and delicious homemade Douro Valley delicacies wine paired with our DOC Douro Wines.

15:30 – Guided visit to a boutique Port Wine Winery where the grapes are still tread by feet in the traditional open granite tanks like 200 years ago. Here you will have the possibility to learn about, and taste several different Port Styles and do a little stroll through the vineyards, if you wish.
