In summer the quicksilver in the thermometer can rise to 40 C (105 F) or even more in the Douro Valley. In October it is much more pleasant, nice summer temperatures actually, and that’s when we have the wine tour to the Douro. But even if it is not so hot, carrying the 50 kg heavy grape baskets up or down the vertiginously steep slopes on your back, as they used to do, must have been an ordeal. Well, your task is much more pleasant, taste some of the best wines and best food that Portugal has to offer.

It is curious that even though the Douro River is famous for its port wines, few people know of the other treasures, some of Portugal’s best table wines. You will explore both the ports and the table wines on the wine tour to the Douro Valley in October.
