Join us on this full day tour visiting the charming town of Amarante, passing by the historic village of Provesende and having lunch in Pinhão, the centre of the demarcated region of Port Wine. Enjoy a river cruise along the slopes of the Douro River, of amazing wine-growing landscapes, classified World Heritage. Get to know the Port Wine production processes during a tasting at Quinta do Seixo-Sandeman
We leave Porto on a short trip to Amarante, a small town on the banks of the river Tâmega, populated by 17th cent. houses and famous for the grandiose church of São Gonçalo, which flanked by the bridge and green vegetation, composes a nook of great wonder. We pass by a historical village, Provesende, of baroque manors and blazoned houses, where we cannot fail to take a warm package of rustic bread or a sausage bread specialty baked in a wood oven. Already in the Douro valley we arrive at the village of Pinhão, where the pause is longer to have lunch and enjoy the slopes of farms, vineyards and viewpoints. Then, a small river cruise in the calm waters of the Douro valley, flanked by terraces of vines of cheerful colors that the sun warms up and turns into sweetness. We arrive at Quinta do Seixo, one of several wineries in the Douro valley, placed in a dazzling landscape that descends to the steep banks of the river. We get to know the process of Port wine production, surrounded by an environment of serenity and beauty, with the taste of fortified wines, by the tastings that take place there. The hard thing is to leave; the memories of a dream place we discover that really exists, are the remaining ones.
