The Douro is somewhat an enchanted region: the grandeur of the landscape, its colors, the slope vineyards, the traditions.

Douro Escape

4 days / 3 nights

Visiting

•Porto •Douro

On the UNESCO World Heritage list as one of the oldest demarcated wine-growing regions in the world, at Alto Douro, we preserve, to this day, many of the old traditions like using the grape-stomping technique for the vintage wines.

It is probably the last of the world’s major wine regions still to be pressing significant quantities of its grapes by foot. Appreciate breathtaking panoramas, along winding roads.

Whether a wine lover or just to explore one of the most beautiful regions in the world, we are sure you’re going to enjoy the Douro Escape experience.
