Terms & Conditions

Day 1: Discover the Douro Valley

 

Welcome to Portugal. Wine Tourism in Portugal will invite you to discover the amazing Douro Valley.

The Private driver is waiting for you in your Hotel lobby in Porto or Porto International Airport (OPO).

Enjoy the scenic 2-hour road trip to the Douro Valley. 

Check-in at the chosen Hotel. You will be accommodated in a Wine Hotel (Category B) or a Luxury Resort (Category A).

Category A – Six Senses Douro Valley – Superior Room or similar/ Category B - Quinta da Pacheca or Quinta do Vallado or Quinta de la Rosa or Quinta de Ventozelo – Double Room or similar

After the check-in, you will be guided in the Quinta da Pacheca Winery. Quinta da Pacheca, one of the most known properties of the Douro, 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 17th April 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 enology, acquiring the property in order to devote himself to the wine production. You will learn about the history, the vinification processes, the vines, the old winery, and the wine cellar, ending with a wine tasting.

Dinner is waiting for you at Quinta da Pacheca Restaurant. The restaurant 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. Delicious gourmet dishes are perfectly harmonized with the award-winning wines of Quinta da Pacheca, making the meals a unique experience.

Day 2: The finest wineries in the region 

 

Wake up to the beautiful landscape of the Douro Valley and recharge your batteries with a fantastic breakfast in the Hotel.

The Private driver is waiting for you in the lobby of the Hotel and will take you to two of the finest Quintas in the Douro Valley.

First stop will be at Quinta do Crasto. Located 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. You will visit the vineyards, including the famous old vineyards of Quinta do Crasto, a winery, and a barrel cellar. After the visit, you will have a tasting of 5 wines.

After the Wine experience, enjoy lunch and views in the Conceitus Restaurant. 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.

After lunch, you will discover Quinta Nova, Nossa Senhora do Carmo. "One of the 9 must-see wineries in the world", distinguished by American Airlines. Quinta Nova Nossa Senhora do Carmo is a place of extreme beauty in the heart of the Douro and it's owned by the Amorim family since 1999. But this property is prior to 1764 and a historical research confirms it as a great land belonging to the Portuguese Royal Family. The historic sites that are still preserved today and opened for visitors reveal all this: the creek, the gazebo, the stone mark of the Marquis of Pombal dated of 1758, the cellar's crest, two chapels and three secular orchards. 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.

End of day.
