What you'll do

Port wine is produced from grapes grown in the northwest part of Portugal - Douro Valley region (one of the oldest vineyards areas in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site). The local indigenous grapes used include Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Cão. Port’s characteristics distinguish it from the regular wines, since all its varieties have rich, intense, and very persistent aromas and flavors. In this experience you will understand the history, the main differences and the process of producing the main types of Port. You will also taste the following Ports: - 1 glass of Pink/Rose Port - 1 glass of White Port - 1 glass of Ruby Port - 1 glass of Tawny Port Additionally we will offer: - 1 cheese platter

Besides being a wine enthusiast (WSET Level 3 Award in Wines), I’m also a citizen of the world and have lived in Austria, Brazil, Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland and have traveled to more than 54 countries / 6 continents across the globe. During that time, I was able to visit wineries and see the winemaking process in places such as Argentina, Austria, Chile, France, Italy, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain and United States.
