Posted by Nelson Carvalheiro on 24-Nov-2015 12:05:21

On the last day of my tour in Douro, before I drive to the airport, I was lucky enough to be able to seat for lunch at Book Restaurant, one of the best restaurants in Porto, right in Porto's city centre, near all the city's main attractions.

The Book Restaurant is located is on Aviz Street, in downtown Porto, in the space that for decades housed the Aviz bookstore. The Book restaurant is intended as a "living room for friends and customers" served by a dedicated staff, where good food is always present. Chef John Mendes created a menu inspired by creativity over traditional Portuguese cuisine.

Serenada Enoturismo - The Perfect Wine Retreat

Posted by Rita Saraiva on 13-Nov-2015 11:35:51

Set on the Atlantic slope of Serra de Grândola and only ten kilometres away from the sea, Serenada Enoturismo is a small housing unit where comfort and sophistication live together with tradition and rusticity.

It belongs to the same family since the 17th century, according to a will dated of 1686. The estate offers an amazing panoramic view of the Arrábida mountains, huge pine woods and cork oak forests extending to the horizon.

Wine Tourism in Portugal has interviewed Jacinta Sobral, the owner of Serenada Enoturismo, in order to learn more about this wine producing estate in one of the best (and off the beaten path) wine regions in Portugal: Península de Setúbal.

Wine & Architecture - The Most Modern Wineries in Portugal

Posted by Rita Saraiva on 11-Nov-2015 11:15:00

When it comes to wine tasting you will have to agree with this: the whole experience includes much more than the tasting itself, right? Otherwise it would be like tasting wine at home. The surroundings, the history of the wine, the people we are with, the architecture of the winery... all of these factors play an important role in the feeling that you get from the experience and how you will remember it later.

Even though Portugal has the oldest demarcated wine region in the world and has been producing and exporting wine for centuries, there are a few wineries and producers who, besides the undeniable quality of their wines, also invested in designing and creating modern wineries of great architectural value.

For the wine and architecture enthusiasts, here are a few examples of the most modern and beautifully designed wineries in Portugal.

The Yeatman - An Experience by Nelson Carvalheiro

Posted by Nelson Carvalheiro on 06-Nov-2015 11:10:00

Last month, I was privileged to visit The Yeatman Hotel in Vila Nova de Gaia, near all the Port Wine Cellars. The Yeatman is arguably the best wine hotel in the world, a luxury haven for good food, good wines and the best views of Porto.

It is one of those places where everything works out as planned, where you can see that every little detail in the hotel’s operation was thought in the planning stage. As an ex-hotelier, I can tell you that this makes a huge difference in the way you experience the Yeatman hotel as a guest.
