Sun dappled vineyards, quintas dotted amongst the steep terraces, sleepy villages; welcome to the magnificent Douro valley, your playground for the day.
Feel the sun on your face as you step from your private boat into one of the most exclusive Quintas in the valley. There’s nothing quite like arriving at a Port winery by boat. The Douro river has been a key part in Port making history for hundreds of years after all.
Wander around the vineyards - those magical places responsible for magical liquid. Taste Port that has been sleeping undisturbed in the Quinta’s dark cellars for decades. Then there’s lunch, a feast of local Portuguese foods served with a view across the valley’s dramatic landscape.
As the boat lazily meanders its way back to its starting point, glass of chilled white Port in hand, it’s not hard to see why locals regard the Douro valley with almost hushed reverence.
