What you'll do

"Travel" the country from north to south in a wine tasting

By joining this experience, you'll support local family-owned wine producers with representative wines from their region.

Did you know that Portugal has FOURTEEN different wine regions with more than 250 grape varieties, more than any other country in the world? During our experience we will taste TEN representative wines from across the country. Our tastings are relaxed, educational and most importantly fun. As such, I'll be explaining the winemaker's notes and typical specifications of the regions so that you can taste and understand how each region differentiates itself from the others.

We will begin from the northern border with Spain with a GREEN WINE, which typically is fruity.

We will then move to the WHITE WINES and taste an exquisite and complex yet typical one from the DOURO region; right after this, we will dive into BAIRRADA and experience the freshness of the region; later, we will try a more mineral one from DÃO and we will finish the first part of the experience with a full-bodied from ALENTEJO.

Before we dive into the RED WINES I'll serve a surprise to help you with the transition. We will begin with TWO intense and full-bodied RED WINES from different regions in DOURO; after, we will try the freshness of a RED WINE from BAIRRADA and a special RED WINE from DÃO. We will finish with a RED WINE from Alentejo, which typically has a lot of structure.

We went as a couple and had a really wonderful time with Joao. We are new to wines and Joao offered a nice, personalized experience that immersed us in the world of Portuguese wines. Excellent host, excellent location, great value for cash. Joao is a very knowledgable sommelier and made us appreciate wines more and learn a lot about the different wine regions of Portugal. Recommended.

This experience was great. João has a really good knowledge and didn’t esitate to share personal stories as well as professional expertise with us. He was very clear in his explanation and involved us very much in understanding the wines’ peculiarities. It was a very interactive experience that I would recommend to everyone who wants to add something special to their trip to Porto.
