End of day.
Wake up to the beautiful landscape of the Douro Valley and recharge your batteries with a fantastic breakfast in the Hotel.
The Private driver is waiting for you in the lobby of the Hotel and will take you to two of the finest Quintas in the Douro Valley.
First stop will be at Quinta do Crasto. Located on the right bank of the River Douro, between Régua and Pinhão, Quinta do Crasto is owned by the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for more than a century. Its origin dates back to the 19th century. The first known references date back to 1615. One of the greatest acknowledgments came in 2008, when Wine Spectator, an international reference of the sector, considered Quinta do Crasto Reserva Vinhas Velhas 2005, coming from vineyards with 70 years, the third best wine in the world that year, giving it a rating of 95 in one hundred points. Since then, this wine has always been in the Top 100 of the American publication. Here you will visit the vineyards, including the famous old vineyards of Quinta do Crasto, a winery and a barrel cellar, where the Premium table wines and Port wines are staging. After the visit you will have a tasting of 5 wines, duly presented by a manager of Quinta do Crasto, who will guide the visitor through the experience.
After the Wine experience, enjoy lunch and views in the Conceitus Restaurant.. Here, the menu appeals to the senses and emotions, in a relaxed and curious way. The proposals are different every day and guests never know the menu, letting themselves be guided by the inspiration of Chef José Pinto.
Then you will discover Quinta Nova, Nossa Senhora do Carmo. "One of the 9 must-see wineries in the world", American Airlines. Quinta Nova Nossa Senhora do Carmo is a place of extreme beauty in the heart of the Douro and it's owned by the Amorim family since 1999. But this property is prior to 1764 and a historical research confirms it as a great land belonging to the Portuguese Royal Family. The historic sites that are still preserved today and opened for visitors reveal all this: the creek, the gazebo, the stone mark of the Marquis of Pombal dated of 1758, the cellar's crest, two chapels and three secular orchards. This is undoubtedly one of the oldest wineries in the Douro region, producing port wine for the Quinta and for many other plots of neighboring farms, given its large size. You will have a guided Tour through the vines, winery dated from 1764 and the underground cellar. The visit ends with a tasting of 3 wines at the wine Shop.
Breakfast in the Hotel followed by Check-out.
The Private driver is waiting for you in the lobby of the Hotel.
During the morning and to end the tour in perfection, sail on board of a private cruise on the Douro River. A 2-hour cruise on board a sailboat, experience the Portuguese history and feel the nature as it travels through the Douro River as a traditional Rabelo boat moved through the force of the sails. Be amazed by the scenarios that Douro has to offer.
After the cruise, the private driver will take you back to Porto or to Porto Airport (OPO).
End of the Tour.
