Douro Valley & Vinho Verde Tour
Douro Valley & Vinho Verde Tour
In this Tour you will get to know two of the most interesting Wine producing regions of Portugal: The Douro Valley and the Vinho Verde Region!
The Douro Valley almost needs no introduction, being the oldest Demarcated Region of the World (1756), which was considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001. This is where Port Wine was invented and still is king, but Douro DOC Reds and White are really standing out too.
On the other hand you have the Vinho Verde Region, a place that started getting popular much more recently with this type of wine that surprises and amazes on the first sip by its refreshing acidity, floral smell and frutier taste. You cannot miss this dynamic duo!
