Bruno L.

Porto, Gondomar, Portugal

Hello from Porto My name is Bruno, I'm 38 years old and I was born and raised in Porto.

My mother is from Douro Wine Region,
If you ever heard about Port Wines, it's where it comes from.
British made it popular but our terroir made it special.
Vines and wine were part of my childhood memories and playground.
My father cames from the Green Wine Region.
Yes, they both make a blend.
Green Wine Region is just a few kilometers from Porto.
Like Port Wine, Green Wine is growing in popularity and consumption.
Some people compare it with Cava, Proseco or even Sparkling.
But this is one of a kind wine, only produced in this area of Portugal: a greeny lovely region that we call Minho.
It is a lite, fizzy wine, with amazing acidity and it pairs beautifully with seafood and fish.
I have a lot of friends in this region, you should came and experience it.
A little bit about me:
I was raízed as catholic like 90 % of our population.
Fátima, Santiago de Compostela, Bom Jesus and many other sanctuaries were an often a
weekend destination.
Did you know that Porto it's a starting point for the Routes of Santiago de Compostela (the Santiago pilgrimage)? This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of most famous in the world.
It's a 250k walk
I did it twice. Definitely a good exercise.
I started as physiotherapist, I was helping people recover their stamina. Then I moved to restaurants as a head waiter.
I became a tour guide three years ago, in a time when Porto was growing in popularity. It became "best European destination" for the third time in 2017.
Suddenly, people from all over the world started to visit us and I wanted to be part of this wonderful (re)discovered new world.
I had a high degree in Hospitality and I decided to quit my job in restaurants.

It was time to turn my passion about wine, Culture and History into a full time job.

Now, here I am, enjoying and showing my beautiful country.

It is really been a pleasure showing visitors my beautiful country.

I have planned tours with the best selection of what you can see and do in the region. But, if you wish, I am able to provide you taylor made tours to several locations in Portugal.

Kindest Regards
