At this experience you will be able to take part in the wine harvest, one of the oldest wine activities in Douro, while enjoying the breathtaking views and tasting some of the best wines in the world. The experience is offered by my partner Wine Tourism in Portugal and is available for 2 persons on the 20th of September.
Come and learn where some of the world’s finest wines start – with the harvest of the Douro. Meet the people who know everything there is to know about the vines, the grapes and what makes a good wine special. And what makes a special wine, and unforgettable one.
The day begins with the cutting of the grape in the middle of the Quinta vast vineyards, straw hat, tobacconist scarf around the neck and scissors in your hand; we will fill up buckets of healthy grapes. With the sunshine comes the meal, right in the middle of the vineyard. Perhaps an onion soup and sardines is the menu of the day. After a day in the field, pressing the grapes is the final step, a real party. We offer you the shorts, but it will be your feet that will help us produce the excellent nectar, always accompanied by live traditional music. You’ll be able to say, throughout the years, that the wine you’re drinking was made by you.
Win an unforgettable Portuguese wine harvest experience in the Douro.
