Northern Wines is breathtaking journey through the senses, in search of the strong flavors of the awarded Wines and traditional Cuisine of an entire region - greatest icons of tradition and alive legacy.

Join Splendid Evasion as we follow the river from romantic Oporto to Douro Valley. There, among an unique scenery of serenity, discover the Wine Estates and listen to the stories behind each one of them, raise your glass between the vineyards and enjoy the refinement of staying in a exquisite Quinta

To close the return trip to Oporto on a high note, we offer the chance to visit a Vinho Verde Wine Property - as the landscape slowly changes, so do the flavours and the cultural heritage.

Back in the city, there are two other experiences not to be missed: a Tasting of the famous nectar in the renowned Port Wine Cellars and an unforgettable dinner by the sound of the most beautiful Fado Music.

    • > FREE TIME IN OPORTO + FADO EVENING >

    • Upon arrival, we will visit and have lunch at one of the most emblematic Douro Wine Properties. Surrounded by a priceless landscape, take your time to discover our traditions and flavors as you visit vineyards, warehouses and cellars... and when the time comes, try the fabulous food and, of course, their wines.
