A river of wine: the wine journey along the meandering Douro Valley

If there were no river, no one would have come up with the idea to grow wine in this inaccessible landscape. Scorching hot in the middle of summer, but wonderfully warm in October when the Douro Valley wine tour takes place.

The river is the life-blood, it was thanks to the waterway that, at the risk of life, one could transport the wines down to the port of Porto for further shipping out into the world. Port wine and, more and more today, “table” wine. I.e. everything that is not fortified, which now belong to Portugal’s top wines. They are fast getting an international reputation.

But perhaps it is time to rediscover the port wine too? If you think that vintage port are the very best of port wines then I challenge you to try some really good long-aged tawny. (On the tour you will!) There is a significant risk that you will be converted!

Without a doubt, the Douro Valley is one of the world’s most spectacular wine landscapes, with wines that reach up to that level too.

Join us on a trip of discovery. A visit to one of Portugal’s best restaurants is included!
