Activity Overview
On this tour we will take you to Monção & Melgaço to try the delicious wines made with the Alvarinho grape, considered the noblest varietal of the region. It’s a Region of majestic sanctuaries and peculiar looking vines, but also of delicious smoked sausages that pair beautifully with the Red Vinho Verde… yes, you re(a)d it correctly! Join us on this experience and get to know a region that truly personifies the spirit of the North.
 
Your tour starts in Porto and heads North towards the Minho and Vinho Verde region.

Our first stop will be at Ponte de Lima. Here we will explore the historic center and walk into a pastry shop for some typical pastries tasting.
 
Now we travel to Melgaço, the most northern municipality of Portugal and one of the two Sub-regions where the Alvarinho is King. Here we will visit one of the most famous Wine Estates of the Region which is still family run and produces nectars of excellence since 1982. After the visit we’ll stop at a typical restaurant where we will have a delicious regional lunch waiting for us.

Then, with our bellies filled and our energies restored, we travel to Monção to get to know the other half of this Sub-region. Here we will meet a family run Wine Estate where the traditions stand as an homage to their ancestors, but also high tech is applied to produce the best wines.

Really enjoyed the tour - the wineries were a much more specialized, personal tour than you traditionallyget in the USA. Our guide was absolutely lovely. We basically got our own private tour of the Vinho Verderegion.

We will travel until the first centuries (a.C) and discover one of the largest castros of the Iberian Peninsula. In the museum, you can see several treasures, among them a collection ... moreof Roman coins. And for this experience to be complete, nothing better than visiting a Vinho Verde Vineyard, ending in beauty with wine and Portuguese snacks tasting.
