Then, you will taste the dishes prepared.

During the afternoon you will be guided in the Quinta da Pacheca. Quinta da Pacheca, one of the most known properties of the Douro, stands out for having been the first to bottle wine under its own brand.The first reference to the Quinta is in a document dated of the 17thApril 1738, where it is called "the Pacheca" because its owner was then D. Mariana Pacheco Pereira. But it was only in 1903 that D. José Freire de Serpa Pimentel decided to develop his growing interest in oenology, acquiring the property in order to devote himself to the wine production. You will learn about the history, the vinification processes, the vines, the old winery and the wine cellar, ending with a wine tasting.

Day 2


Wake up to the beautiful landscape of the Douro Valley and recharge your batteries with a fantastic breakfast in the Hotel.

The Private driver/guide is waiting for you in the lobby of the Hotel and will take you to two of the most important 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.

End of the day.

On your last day in the Douro Valley, we will take you to Pinhão, where you will have the opportunity to visit the "crown jewel" of Real Companhia Velha, the largest Quinta in the Douro region -Quinta das Carvalhas. A property of immense beauty and grandiosity whose oldest written reference date back to 1759. This is one of the most emblematic Douro properties and it is considered by many the "Douro image" because it allows a view of the territory and of the most beautiful Douro has to show. Nowhere else you can see so much in so little time. The mountain of Carvalhas, at 550 meters of altitude and from where you can enjoy a landscape in 360 degrees, is the site of "excellence" for the observation of the property and Douro. You will have a visit tothe Vineyardsaccompanied by the Quinta das Carvalhas Agricultural Engineer. Join this tour and appreciate a direct contact with nature in the vines, mediterranian forests and gardens, alongside the people who work them. We offer the chance to see the Douro thorugh the eyes of a local and to relish the greatness of the region with a detailed explanation of everything happening at the Quinta. The tour finishes at our wine shop for a tasting of the top Wines of Carvalhas (White, Tinta Francisca, Touriga Nacional & Vinhas Velhas), partnered with a platter of cheeses and finishing with a glass of Port.

After a free lunch, you will enjoy a magnificent exclusive cruise on the Douro River. On board the Libertu's sailboat live moments of intimacy with nature as it travels emotionally through history to the times when the Rabelo boats moved through the force of the sails. Libertu's is a 10, 5 meters (34 ft.) Dehler sailing ship with a 14 meters (45 ft.) mast and with a maximum capacity for 12 people and is luxuriously equipped with 2 rooms, a lounge area, kitchen and WC. Be amazed by the scenarios that Douro has to offer.
