We start our day in the center of Porto where we meet each other and we get inboard of our Mercedes Van. During the drive we will share with you everything about Wine Culture, Wine Regions and the history associated. We will drive throughout Mountains and Valleys until we get a World Heritage Site by Unesco, the Majestic Douro Valley. As soon as we get there it’s time for a break to breathe & feel the outstanding atmosphere of the Valley. After we will drive nearby until a beautiful non touristic Winery located in the Heart of Douro. It’s here where you will learn even more about Douro’s Terroir, the Wine-Making process, the Wine Aging and the difference between regular Wines and the very famous PORT Wines. The walk is provided by a proper local Wine Expert who will give you a full Wine Tasting commenting its details, flavors, aromas and complexity. The private boat trip happens around midday when the sun is high. You will sail up the Douro River between wineries surrounded by amazing vineyards, eating some local appetizers and paring with a delicious drink. In addition to our day we will drive to the 2nd Winery to meet a Portuguese Family who will host us for a delicious home cooked Portuguese lunch pairing with their local D.O.C Wines from Douro Valley. Let yourself immerse in this experience focus in privileged access places, connection with people and the wine’s world.
