Our guide arranged this tour and it was very interesting. You travel by open-top mini bus to the top of the hill stopping along the way for information about the vines and what effect that has on the wine produced. The tasting afterward was fun...More

A great combo experience: the best views over Douro valley from the top of the wine yards (500 m above the sea), gorgeous wine estates, excellent guide for the winery tour and last but not least great wine tasting. The 2014 red Carvalhas and the...More
