Best Wine Experiences in the Douro Valley

Posted by Nelson Carvalheiro on 29-Jul-2015 11:30:00

On this chapter I choose to recommend wine experiences in Douro, rather than tours of vineyards or visits to wineries. Let’s face it, no one takes absolute pleasure from looking at towers of stainless steel while having a tour guide describe the fermentation process for the 10th time that day. Here, I focus on the out of the box experiences that some of the Quintas offer, and which I find 100x more rewarding to you as a visitor and as a wine enthusiast.

Best Pool Views in the Alentejo

Posted by Wine Tourism in Portugal on 09-Jul-2015 16:05:00

The Summer is here and if there is a place in Portugal where we can feel it in its peak is in Alentejo. The hot summer temperatures in Alentejo make it almost mandatory to spend some time in the pool and relax in the shade. But the only thing better than a lounging poolside or diving in the light blue water on a hot day, is doing it with a great view and finishing the day tasting some of the best wines from Alentejo
