TINTO Wine Tasting Tour
Porto & Douro
Come explore the best of Northern Portugal, often described as the most beautiful wine region in the world, a place where you can sip port in picturesque Porto, experience wine tastings at vineyards impressively terraced on the hills alongside the Douro River, and step back in time within the medieval castle-town of Guimarães, where the 1st King of Portugal, a Knight Templar, was born to French and Spanish royals.
Portugal is perfect for 1st time travelers to Europe, as most Portuguese are proficient English-speakers and known for being wonderfully welcoming. As one of the oldest nations in Europe, and leader in ‘The Age of Discovery,’ Portugal is a place unlike any other, a place inspired by global explorations, a place where art, architecture, food and wine express elements of the world, all the while remaining uniquely Portuguese.
“If you miss Portuguese wines, you will be missing out on what is arguably the most exciting new wine chapter in the 21st-century wine modernity...the best are gorgeous.” Wine Spectator critic Matt Kramer
