Discovering Porto & Douro in Portugal - Enjoy unforgettable moments during your awesome group travel - Experience 4 and 5 Star Hotels, excellent cuisine and a Michelin Guide restaurant - Enhance your wine experience and bring unforgettable moments with you back home

For the last two decades, wine has been one of the top reasons travellers choose to visit Portugal. Hundreds of vineyards are spread across this country’s rural regions, firmly imprinting winemaking into Portugal’s culture. Experience the delectable drink during our Portugal Gourmet Wine Travel, stay at awesome hotels and enjoy this silky nectar with style, luxury, and comfort.

The Porto wines are possibly the best known wines from the Douro regions and the ones that have traded internationally the longest. The Douro region however produces both the fortified Port wines as the lighter to bodied Douro wines. The Douro wines range from light, Bordeaux style claret to rich Burgundian style wines aged in new oak.

During this Gourmet Wine Tour you will enjoy the „Paradise“. Once landed at the International Airport Oporto, we will bring you by a private shuttle to the 5-star Hotel Pestana Vintage Porto, in the heart of Porto-Ribeira, surrounded with a unique atmosphere, and charming little spots.
What can be better than to start with a cellar visit of W & J Graham’s,one of the most famous Port Wine Houses, followed by a PREMIUM TAWNY TASTING with 10 Years Old Tawny and 20 Years Old Tawny.

The next two days are dedicated to the Douro Region and you will enhance your wine experience by visiting TOP-Wine-Producers like Quinta das Carvalhas, Quinta da Pacheca, Quinta do Seixo and Quinta do Pôpa. You couldn’t be further into the heart of Portugal’s infamous Duoro region when staying at Quinta de Casaldronho Winery Hotel, one of the TOP wine Hotels in Portugal. Looking right into the Peso da Régua valley, this modern hotel is based on a 24-hectare plot of land, owned by the same family for four generations, and surrounded by sweeping scenery. The wine production here is relatively small, with around 100 barrels a year, 30 of which are reserved for Port. We will dine one evening in their restaurant to taste the authentic Portugiese cooking, accompanied by a selection of wines from Casaldronho .... and have you ever tried a 60 years old Portwine?

The next day we transfer to the Vinho Verde region and visit Quinta da Aveleda (lunch). Back in Porto a Masterclass “Wines of Portugal” and a Dinner@DOP restaurant of Chef Rui Paula, a Michelin Guide restaurant will follow. On Monday 26 March you will bring home unforgettable moments.
