Programme

Saturday, 21st of September 2024

We meet in the morning in Porto, where we are picked up by our taxi service. A private driver will take us to Regua, on the Douro river. Régua is located on the western edge of the Douro Valley, but is already part of the Douro wine region.
When we arrive in Régua we will have a light lunch, and afterwards go directly to the first wine tasting. A traditional family business that specialises in Portwine production – but also produces excelent still wines! We can enjoy the view over the valley, taste splendid wines and enjoy the Douro valley.
After the tasting the driver will brijng us to the Hotel, where we can check in our rooms, freshen up and relax for a bit.

We will have a dinner together in Regua.

Sunday, 22nd of September 2024

After breakfast we are heading to the next winery.

This wineproducer is located close to Régua, and produces low intervention wines, organically grown and fermented with natural yeast. Here we are treated to lunch and can taste more Douro wines – truly special, unique wines, where you taste the passion, tradition and love going into the products. They are wines that are hard to forget – characterised by high quality and uniqueness, terroir driven to reflect culture, tradition and a certain twist. Add to this the friendly nature of our hosts – yet another special day in the Douro valley.

Arriving back in Régua you can rest, enjoy your afternoon, or for those who like there is the Port museum waiting for us.  The visit to the Port Wine Museum tells us more about the history of port wine and the background to the Douro region, which is steeped in tradition.

Again we will have dinner together.

Monday, 23rd of September 2024

After breakfast, we take the train further up the valley to Pinhão. The train line winds along the river, with views of the valley and the vineyards.
After a lunch in Pinhão, we go on a boat trip on a large traditional boat up the river, giving us a different perspective of the valley – from the waters. the two hours trip will give us time to rest and just enjoy the afternoon. After the boat trip, we take the train back to Regua.

We will have a Wine & Dine – a nice dinner with wine pairing to fully enjoy this sunday night.

Tuesday, 24rd of September 2024

On our last day, we head back to Porto after breakfast. But we make a detour to the Vinho Verde region.
There we experience a tour of the winery. We savour the wines over a sumptuous, traditional lunch. The good thing about this wine producer is that we can taste his wines from the Vinho Verde region as well as some red wines from the Dão region, where he also has a vineyard. Whether Vinho Verde or Dão wines – these are top quality, unique and terroir-driven wines. Sated and satisfied, we make our way to Porto.

After the check in in one of the most beautiful 5-star Hotel in the city, we will have a walk through the heart Portos, and end up in a restaurant where we can enjoy the last dinner together. That’s where the tour together ends.

What people say about wine experiences with vinho comigo

“An amazing wine tasting experience with wines from different Portuguese regions, very balanced and well explained by the passionate host Nora! Definitely recommend it! 🍷” – Rosário

“Nora, I wanted to thank you for such a lovely day of wine tasting. Each winery was lovely in its own unique way. In particular we enjoyed how the first winery we got to learn more about the climate and how grapes are grown. The second winery was more about the varietals seen in Portugal. Finally we appreciated speaking with the actual wine makers at the last stop! It truly was a great day.” – Raina
