You will visit Quinta da Pacheca. One of the most well-known properties of the Douro Valley, stands out for having been the first to bottle wine under its own brand.The first reference to the Quinta is in a document dated of the 17thApril 1738, where it is called "the Pacheca" because its owner was then D. Mariana Pacheco Pereira. But it was only in 1903 that D. José Freire de Serpa Pimentel decided to develop his growing interest in oenology, acquiring the property in order to devote himself to the wine production. A guided visit where you will have the opportunity to know the history, as well as the wine-making processes of the wines of Pacheca and a wine tasting.
After the wine experience you will enjoy lunch at the The Wine House Hotel that offers a touch of luxury and gourmet and a search for constant quality, while keeping the true essence of the traditional Portuguese cuisine. Always prepared with fresh products of the land, the restaurant dishes are a real temptation.The quality of this cuisine, famous throughout the Douro region, makes the restaurant of Quinta da Pacheca the Ex-libris of the estate, a warm and relaxing place with a view over the Douro and the vine terraces, completed by the comfort of typical fireplace.

The view from Quinta do Seixo is breathtaking throughout the year, in a constant change of colour and light. A magnificent landscape, shaped by man in shale terraces, a surprising contrast with the brightness of the Douro river and the view of the picturesque village of Pinhão nearby.

"We were a group of 19 people and I had to organize the tour. So I decided to ask the customer service, Mariana, to help me to book a minibus for the group. Mariana did a great job! She was so kind.
