Bespoke recommendations, access to private wineries, heritage hotels, local family dinners, lunches in the middle of the vineyards, your very own personal oenologist advising your travel plans… These are one of the few examples of how Wine Tourism in Portugal allows you gain an insider access to discover Portugal through wine. It’s as if you were a family member, who they are keen on showing the places, people, experiences and wine tastings that are not available to the common tourist. It is not just about organizing and selling tours, room nights or wine experiences. They are sole heartily committed to showing you the best that Portuguese wine has to offer to someone who believes wine and all the culture that surrounds it can better define Portugal than much of its heritage and culture.

This is what makes Wine Tourism in Portugal the #1 Portugal Wine Travel inspiration Portal!
They share my belief that the world class wines which Portugal produces year after year have the humblest of origins. We are not bullying our terroir and our ancestry like the French, we don’t think we rule the wine world like the Spanish, neither we think we are taking the wine consumption world by storm like the Californians. Portuguese wine is as quaint and candid as it people. We don’t need big prizes and big awards to feel whole. Sure, the recognition is great, but deep down what really matters to the wine producer is that he feels that he is making a “soulful” wine. It’s this very Portuguese sense of character, that you don’t make things just for making money, but rather to be recognized by your peers and by your clients as something great, trustworthy and truly enjoyable.
It is this shared vision that sparked me into diving “nose first” into the Wine Tourism in Portugal” project as their as one of their Travel Consultants and Ambassadors. I want the world to know about this integral, frank and fearless way of producing wine, and to be able to help Wine Tourism in Portugal showcase this Portugal as the country’s greatest wine travel inspiration asset.
I am here to help Wine Tourism in Portugal to showcase the best private and unique ways to travel through Portugal through Wine.
The best thing about promoting Portugal through wine is that you don’t have to do anything. You don’t have to invent or make up any products. Neither to structure and organize anything. The territory already provides everything. The boutique wineries are there, the food culture, the landscaped vineyards where you will be able to make your own wine, the personal heritage hotel on top of the hill overlooking the river, the private producers who only make wine for family and friends. Portugal’s wine culture is so rich, all we do is to grant you access to this “private off the tourist maps” experience.
Both I and Wine Tourism in Portugal want to inspire you to Travel travel through Portugal through wine, and a lot of that travel inspiration will be made through honest, straightforward visual wine storytelling in the Travel and Wine Blog. I will be writing about my recommendations for the best Portugal wine tours, the best wine producers, the best wine restaurants and the best overall way to discover Portugal through wine.
