You begin the tour in Porto and head to the South East towards the Dão region. This region produces elegant wines with soothing aromas, being the Touriga Nacional (red) and Encruzado (white) the grape varieties that best personify the Dão.
The first stop will be at a Wine Estate owned by the same family for at least four generations, localised in the Portuguese Wine Region Dão. Standing 430 m above sea level, overlooking the river that lends name to the region, this Quinta is located in the peculiar “terroir” of Oliveira de Barreiros village, from where we can see the rustic landscape of Serra da Estrela. Here you will visit the estate and taste the Dão wine.
You then cruise down a road with vineyard on both side in direction of Nelas, where you'll have a regional lunch waiting.
It´s time to set off in the direction of Coimbra, the University City. You'll will visit the Royal Palace and the Universities, buildings considered World Heritage by UNESCO.
It might be time for a snack, so after a stroll on the downtown of Coimbra, you'll stop for some traditional pastry of Coimbra on one of the oldest and most well-known bakery of the city, which serves traditional quality products since 1955!
Then we return to Porto. Are you ready for the trip? Book now!
