Wine Harvest Experience at Quinta da Pacheca, by our contest winner

Posted by Wine Tourism in Portugal on 28-Sep-2015 12:16:44

Remember our Wine Harvest in Douro contest? Just as a quick reminder, we offered two lucky people the opportunity to visit Quinta da Pacheca and take part in one of the most amazing wine experiences in Portugal: the wine harvest. It is a traditional activity where every visitor can cut the grapes alongside with the estate's workers, enjoy a traditional lunch, taste the best wines of the estate and even thread the grapes, being an active part in the production of the future wines of excellence made at Quinta da Pacheca.

Sónia, our winner, hit the road early in the morning of 19th September and describes what it was like to spend a day at the harvest, sharing her experience with us in her travel blog

Here is what she has to say about her day in the Douro:

This year the harvest season starts early. A dry year with mild and hot temperatures during the year make it possible to be a part of the harvest process already in August. The harvest in Portugal is one of the oldest wine-related activities, and the most authentic and traditional one. The vineyards are filled with workers and excitement to pick the grapes that will make some of the finest wines in the world.
