PRIVATE DOURO VALLEY WINE TOURS!

In 1756, Douro became the very first delimited and regulated Wine Region in the world. As a matter of fact, it has an area of ​​roughly 250 000 hectares (618 000 acres) making it the single largest mountain vineyard region in the world.

 

On the 14th of December 2001, UNESCO decided unanimously to declare the Alto Douro Valley Wine Region as a World Heritage Site: “This long tradition of viticulture has produced, for some 2000 years, a cultural landscape of outstanding beauty that reflects its technological, social and economic evolution.”

 

The nectars produced here are diverse, intense and unique in flavor, due to the Douro region’s many different native grapes. For this reason, it has given experiences so suggestive as to have created the expression: “Wine is bottled poetry” (STEVENSON, Robert Louis).
