Pick up at hotel in Porto

We will pick you up from your hotel or straight from the airport, depending on your preference, in order to bring you to the pittoresque town of Sabrosa, where our tour will take place. Totally off-the-beaten-path, this “only-us” tour gives your group an intimate glimpse of Douro society through a charming and delightful family involved in making wine in the Valley since the 1700’s. Teresa and José are cousins with big hearts, heaps of character, a great sense of fun, and plenty of stories to share. First, you’ll meet Teresa, the acting “rainha” (queen) and host of Casa dos Barros, an historic noble family manor house, half of which has been converted into an enchanting small hotel.

A very tasty and unique adventure

I opted for a one-day trip with Grape Discoveries along the wineyards of the Douro Valley as I had heard so much about its breath-taking scenery and excellent wines. This was an unforgettable and authentic experience made even better with our guide James Mayor‘s passion for the land, the people and the wine as well as his great sense of humour. One day isn’t quite enough though, therefore I will definitely come back for one of their longer tours.
