Wine and Walking in Portugal

October 14-21, 2023

This trip truly has it all: Travel internationally with a loved one--or 3!; let someone else (me!) take care of all the logistics; stay in 4* and 5* accommodations; taste wine in the UNESCO Douro Valley of Portugal; and breath in the fresh air of autumn, as we walk the terraced vineyards!

Portugal has been making wine for centuries, with some estimates placing the first planting of vines as far back as 2000 BC. The Basto and Douro regions are perhaps the best known and offer rich landscapes and history to visitors from around the globe. 

This walking tour starts in atmospheric Porto and continues a voyage of taste and discovery through the UNESCO World Heritage Douro Valley, where the famous port wines are produced. We also take in the region known as Terras de Basto where Portugal’s ‘young’ wine – vinho verde – is produced. Leisurely walks and cultural visits provide the perfect introduction to this fascinating country, once a dominant world trading power.
