Activity Overview
Perhaps you’ll want to visit a historical winery and experience the processes of wine production by joining the harvest. That’s alright! A visit to the estate in the Douro Demarcated Region to see the process of creating wine is definitely worthwhile. You’ll love the experience and traditions around it not to mention the taste of the final blend. It’s fascinating!

Our day begins in Porto, the unconquered city. We start the tour and point to the east, where the Douro awaits us. 

As we approach our Winery for the day we start seeing the beautiful vineyards that surround it. We finally arrive to the Wine Estate and start by visiting the Estate gardens. In the late morning we will have a wine and appetizers tasting assisted by the Oenologists of the Estate. 

Already with a bit of wine in our system to cheer us up, we go to the Vineyards to start the grape picking. Out here you need to earn your lunch, so only filled up baskets are accepted! The Douro is famous for still doing some of its wine by stomping by feet, so now it’s time for you contribute to the tradition: all to the lagar! 

All this activity probably made you thirsty so we step into the Sanctuary of Moscatel to discover this delicious nectar they’ve been making for more than 100 years. 

Because you did your job right, you’ll be awarded a delicious Douro Regional lunch paired with the Estate White and Red. To close our time at the Winery on a high note you’ll taste a sparkling wine made in the area.

Then we get back in the car and drive down the road to visit two of the most beautiful viewing points of the region. On the way back to Porto we’ll drive next to the Douro river on one of the most beautiful roads of the Valley. Are you ready for the trip? Book Now!
