Meet the celebrated viticulturist of a top Quinta, situated on the banks of the Douro River and within sight of the well-know town of Pinhão. This agronomist will be your guide and teacher for the morning as you explore the vineyards, gardens and woodlands of the property and learn about the soil, climate and viticultural practices employed in the region. Finish your morning off with a privately guided wine tasting of the quinta’s top wines, capping it off with a tasting of the quinta’s famous 40-year owl Tawny.
For lunch, you will make your way to the celebrated wine orientated restaurant, DOC. Situated on a platform raised over the water’s edge, enjoy a lunch inspired by the produce of the region and an extensive and comprehensive wine menu to match.
For your final wine experience of the day, meet the winemaker at a small but well-regarded boutique port producer. A rustic operation with much history (the doors to the cellar alone are over 200 years old), the wines here are lighter in style than most port wine producers in the region and highly regarded by connoisseurs the world over.
