Activity Overview
Visiting the Douro during the harvesting season is mind-blowing; you’ll love to explore this remarkable wine region. Upon arriving to the wine estate, you’ll be welcomed and handed a hat, tobacconist scarf, a bucket and a pair of cutting scissors. Here, you’ll enjoy some mid-morning snacks as you interact with the workers and have the opportunity to pick some grapes. All along, you’ll learn the history of wine in the region alongside some secrets of making a unique flavored local wine.

The lunch will be served around in the middle of the vineyards; a perfect local cuisine consisting of fish, soup, and some fruits. You’ll love the traditional portuguese food.

Later, the tour is scheduled for a wine tasting session of port and table wines. You will be invited into the huge wine tank where, with the master, you will be able to tread the grapes alongside the rest of the workers. It’s adventurous! It’s amazing to learn that people actually don their shorts and bare their feet when treading grapes.

By now, you’ll have hooked up with a few of the workers. Hence, you’ll learn a few things about the Douro people, culture, and tradition. Later, you’ll give farewell to your new-found friends and end the trip!
