Port Tasting Holiday

Port Wine Tasting- Credits Duoro Wine TourismThis Port tasting tour is designed for those on a tighter budget who would like a simple short break in Porto. However, in common with all Grape Escapes tours, we don’t skimp on quality just because it is inexpensive. Walking between each destination, you will visit the famous Sandeman Port wine lodge, which boasts a magnificent view of Porto. Here, your English-speaking guide will accompany you through the lodges full of casks of ageing Porto wine and your visit will conclude with a tutored tasting of four ports; a White, a Ruby Reserve, an LBV and a ten year old Tawny.

Port Wine Tasting- Credits ViniturPortuguese cuisine is truly delicious and you will sample many of the region’s delicacies on your trip. A traditional food and wine tasting lunch will be served in a true Portuguese setting. Whilst admiring the views of Porto from this convivial riverside bar/restaurant in Gaia, you will enjoy a variety of shared snacks to sample the local cuisine. Examples of these dishes include Ewe’s cheese and cured ham. The snacks will be served with three local wines; White Port, LBV Port and Douro Wine as well as water and coffee. The culinary highlight however, will be the gourmet dinner at the fantastic DOP restaurant. The restaurant is headed by celebrated chef Rui Paula and is situated in a beautiful, historical building. Portuguese cuisine is truly delicious and you will sample many of the region’s delicacies on your trip.
