Why We Love Wine Tourism in Portugal (And You Should Too!)

Posted by Wine Tourism in Portugal on 01-Dec-2015 16:10:00

There is something about wine that brings families together around the table, that makes friends laugh with each other and that bring couples closer in that intimate sharing of their favourite wine.

But one of the most wonderful things about wine is that you don’t have to be a wine connoisseur to enjoy a day at a wine producing estate in Douro or Alentejo or to appreciate a wine tasting at some of the oldest and most historic wineries and cellars in Portugal.

How to Plan a Winter Getaway in Porto - A Tour to the Port Wine Cellars

Posted by Rita Saraiva on 15-Oct-2015 12:10:00

Winter, and particularly Christmas time, is traditionally the perfect time for a family or a couple getaway. While there are many cities that make it worthwhile visiting during the hotter months, Porto offers a wide range of activities and attractions, showing its magical and enchanting side during the colder months.

One of the best activities to do during a winter in Porto or during Christmas time is a guided tour to the Port wine cellars and taste the famous Port wine, a sweet fortified wine from the Douro region. And if you could, at the same time, enjoy some chocolate and some cheese with your Port, while getting the Christmas shopping done, perfect, right? So what could be better to do in Porto than to warm up in the most renowned wine lodges, tasting the delicious Port wines? Check our suggestions below!

Carmo's Boutique Hotel, an Authentic Experience by Nelson Carvalheiro

Posted by Nelson Carvalheiro on 13-Oct-2015 16:20:00

Carmo’s Boutique Hotel is located in a very rural area of northern Portugal, 5 km from Ponte de Lima. The warm hospitality of the people in this region is well known and their "back to Portuguese roots" way of welcoming guests is something I’ve always appreciated. The hotel was nominated in 2013 by the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler as one of the best new hotels in the world. With all this in mind I gladly spent a sunny weekend at the end of winter at Carmos Boutique Hotel.
