What you'll do

Come on this journey with us through one of the most ancient wine countries in the world where we will discover the different terroirs of the region. The Douro region is divided into three sub-regions: from west to east the Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo and Douro Superior

Starting in the cradle of the Douro, Baixo Corgo subregion is the heart of the vineyard with the best set of conditions to create a balanced wine both in body and fruitiness, with a perfect freshness and a high productivity.

At Cima Corgo we will meet the terroirs perfect for the wines of highest quality were we will experience the oldest stone terraces vineyards used also as the icons of Port wine. Here we will find the best balanced wines with smooth silky tannins and with the longest aging potential in the bottle.

Upstream we will reach Douro Superior feeling the extreme climate conditions of the region tasting the powerful profile of the wines, strong in fruitiness and complexity, generating one of the top full-body wines in the world.

Born in Lisbon, I've been dedicated to the amazing world of Port Wines since 2013 when I started to host private tastings for friends and friends of friends. Later on I decided to move to Porto, become a professional sommelier and work full-time in the Port Wines industry. I worked several years for the main brands, hosted countless of tastings in their cellars and now it is time for me to share with this amazing community the best of each Port wine brand.

I felt the venue was iconic and interesting until an adjacent table was hosted to a Port Tasting, that was a distraction and made the host difficult to hear. This was unfortunate as we had already had several reschedules from the host. Joao has an amazing & incredible knowledge of Port Wine and is clearly capable of holding a great experience, but changes in scheduling, lack of correct glassware, a noisy table adjacent to our group, distracted from what I think is normally a professional experience.

João is very knowledgeable about the wines and this experience provides a great introduction to Portugal’s wine regions. Would recommend to those interested in learning more about Portugal’s wine varietals. We found this especially helpful at the start of our stay.

João’s wine tasting masterclass was great. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate. We tried 6 delicious wines and learnt lots about the history and background of Portugal’s wine regions. Would definitely recommend !
