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:
