Wine Tour of the Vinho Verde Region from Porto Including Lunch

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    In the morning, meet your guide for a pickup at your Porto hotel and then begin your small-group wine tour of the renowned Minho province. As you drive in your air-conditioned minivan, learn about the region that cultivates Vinho Verde or green wine. Hear about the 30,000 plus producers whose heritage is creating this specialty wine.

    Take a break on your drive north and see a hidden area where stunning vine-laden hillsides receive fresh gusts of wind from the Atlantic. Continue another hour or so to Celorico de Basto, old town which boasts a beautiful vantage point of forested mountains. Here, savor your first tasting of crisp green wine which was is named for its early creation, not color. Learn how the local topography and climate help form Vinho Verde’s light complexion and unique flavor.

    Afterward, take a break for lunch at a traditional Portuguese diner. Enjoy the flavors of a rich and nourishing stew and delicious cod. While savoring your meal, gaze out at the breathtaking views of Amarante and its green farmland.

    Next, head to the nearby city of Amarante, which is thought to have been established in the 4th century BC. Here, wander through its charming city center and see the Church St Goncalo, which honors an influential Portuguese priest. By now you’re thirsty again, so stroll nearby to a farm’s renovated manor house and enjoy another wine tasting. Inside, notice the homemade sausages dangling from the rustic rafters as you swirl your next pour of wine.

    Following your last gulp, hop back in your minivan and return to your Porto hotel where your tour ends in the evening.
