Day 2
 
Wake up to the beautiful landscape of the Douro Valley and recharge your batteries with a fantastic breakfast in the Hotel.
 
The Private driver/ guide is waiting for you in the lobby of the Hotel and will take you to two of the most important Quintas in the Douro Valley.
 
First stop will be at Quinta Nova, Nossa Senhora do Carmo. 250 years ago, the traditional Quinta Nova winery, owned by the Amorim Group, was harvesting its first grapes. This is undoubtedly one of the oldest wineries in the Douro region, producing port wine for the Quinta and for many other plots of neighboring farms, given its large size. You will have a guided Tour through the vines, winery dated from 1764 and the underground cellar. The visit ends with a tasting of 3 wines at the wine Shop.
 
Enjoy lunch and views in the Conceitus Restaurant. Here, the menu appeals to the senses and emotions, in a relaxed and curious way. The proposals are different every day and guests never know the menu, letting themselves be guided by the inspiration of Chef José Pinto.
 
Then you will discover Quinta do Crasto. Located on the right bank of the River Douro, between Régua and Pinhão, Quinta do Crasto is owned by the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for more than a century. Its origin dates back to the 19th century. The first known references date back to 1615. One of the greatest acknowledgments came in 2008, when Wine Spectator, an international reference of the sector, considered Quinta do Crasto Reserva Vinhas Velhas 2005, coming from vineyards with 70 years, the third best wine in the world that year, giving it a rating of 95 in one hundred points. Since then, this wine has always been in the Top 100 of the American publication. Here you will visit the vineyards, including the famous old vineyards of Quinta do Crasto, a winery and a barrel cellar, where the Premium table wines and Port wines are staging. After the visit you will have a tasting of 5 wines, duly presented by a manager of Quinta do Crasto, who will guide the visitor through the experience.
 
End of the day.
 
 
Day 3
 
Breakfast in the Hotel followed by Check-out.
 
On your last day in the Douro Valley, we will take you to Pinhão, where you will have the opportunity to visit the "crown jewel" of Real Companhia Velha, the largest Quinta in the Douro region - Quinta das Carvalhas. A property of immense beauty and grandiosity whose oldest written reference date back to 1759. This is one of the most emblematic Douro properties and it is considered by many the "Douro image" because it allows a view of the territory and of the most beautiful Douro has to show. Nowhere else you can see so much in so little time. The mountain of Carvalhas, at 550 meters of altitude and from where you can enjoy a landscape in 360 degrees, is the site of "excellence" for the observation of the property and Douro. You will have a visit to the Vineyards accompanied by the Quinta das Carvalhas Agricultural Engineer. Join this tour and appreciate a direct contact with nature in the vines, mediterranian forests and gardens, alongside the people who work them. We offer the chance to see the Douro thorugh the eyes of a local and to relish the greatness of the region with a detailed explanation of everything happening at the Quinta. The tour finishes at our wine shop for a tasting of the top Wines of Carvalhas (White, Tinta Francisca, Touriga Nacional & Vinhas Velhas), partnered with a platter of cheeses and finishing with a glass of Port.
 
After the wine experience you will enjoy a magnificent exclusive cruise on the Douro River. On board the Libertu's sailboat live moments of intimacy with nature as it travels emotionally through history to the times when the Rabelo boats moved through the force of the sails. Libertu's is a 10, 5 meters (34 ft.) Dehler sailing ship with a 14 meters (45 ft.) mast and with a maximum capacity for 12 people and is luxuriously equipped with 2 rooms, a lounge area, kitchen and WC. Be amazed by the scenarios that Douro has to offer.
 
The private driver/guide will take you back to Porto or to Porto Airport (OPO).
