Full description
Your experience will begin from Porto, from where you will visit the Vinho Verde region which occupies the northwest of Portugal. It is one of the largest and oldest wine regions in the world, and whilst there you can taste the fresh and lush wines of the region as well as the famous Alvarinho wines. Explore one of Portugal's oldest and most important villages, and discover the region that was demarcated back in 1908. It is there that one of the most popular types of Portuguese wine Vinho Verde is produced. Your first stop will be at Ponte de Lima, where you will explore the historic center. From there, travel to Melgaço, the most northern municipality of Portugal and one of the two sub-regions where Alvarinho is King. Visit one of the most famous wine estates of the region, which is still family run and has produced nectars of excellence since 1982. Then, with your bellies filled and your energy restored, travel to Monção to get to know the other half of this sub-region. You will encounter a family-run wine estate where the traditions stand as a homage to their ancestors, yet modern high-tech is also applied to produce the best wines. Your day will later conclude as you are dropped off back to your accommodation in Porto.
