WINE TOURS (PORTUGAL)
An experience that will showcase the diversity of Portuguese Wine Regions, beyond the landscape diversity.
Portugal has been for too long in the shadow of the wine scene. Over the past few years, Portugal has been imposing itself as a top wine producer and the wine awards received come to prove this fact.
From secular wine cellars full of history, small traditional producers and old technics, to the new producers and technologies, we will be careful to provide you a unique experience in each wine tour.
Portugal has some of the best and most charming traditional wineries where native grape varieties are still handpicked and are foot-trodden in the old-fashioned way, owner of the unique wines such as the fortified Port Wine and Madeira Wine, and exceptional table wines.
There are over 1 million acres (400,000 hectares) of vines in Portugal of distinct variations of grapes depending on the region since the climate and soil type really varies from the cool North region where "green wine" is produced, down to the Southern Alentejo region influenced by the hot and dry climate.
Distinct varieties of grapes come from the regions of Alentejo, the Algarve, Beira, Dão, Douro, Bairrada, Tejo, Setúbal, and from all the rest of the 14 wine regions that Portugal has.
The wine tours always include a regional lunch in a local restaurant.
NOTE: It is possible to include a meal at the wineries. Please contact us. According to the region and the time available, you may include other traditional activities on the tour (for example: a visit to a traditional tile factory, boat ride, a visit to relevant heritage monuments or to visit the potters, among other possibilities).
