Visit 2 Wineries with Wine tastings and enjoy a Portuguese traditional lunch inside of a family-owned Winery


I am currently an international course WSET Wines student level 2 and it will help me out to provide you a proper Wine Tour to the heart of Douro Valley - World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

We early depart from Porto towards to Douro region during 1h30. After stopping in a viewpoint for pictures we will visit a small Wine Producer with different wine tastings included. Here we will introduce you different categories of Douro wines, the terroir, the grape varieties and the aromas & flavors during wine tasting.

Before lunch, nothing fits better than 1 hour private boat trip tasting some snacks and drinking something special of Douro, while you enjoy the breathtaking views of wineries in the river banks.

Then we will visit a family-owned winery starting by a delicious home cook Portuguese lunch with wine paring. Later we will visit their beautiful property including a relaxed vineyard walk holding a glass of your favorite wine!

My selection of wineries are based in quality and local unique characteristics.
