Your relaxing day trip to Azeitão and Palmela in the region of Setubal, will not only only take you to a lush, green corner of Portugal, but to a culinary wonderland rarely visited by tourists!

Nestled among olive and cork trees, Palmela and Azeitao are quaint little villages nestled along the Arrabida hills. Known for its red wine, olives and creamy sheep cheese, the latter prized as one of the best in the country, Azeitao also features some of the finest quintas (villas or country estates) in the region – which you’ll visit!

During your exquisite day trip, you’ll not only savor sensational seafood, flavorful cheeses and ripe, juicy olives, but you’ll taste your way through some of the best Moscatel wines of the region. What better way to enjoy a wee getaway from the bustling city!

Highlights:

  • Experience the best of the Setúbal Peninsula wine region through the eyes of a native. 
  • Enjoy a wide range of pastries and traditional foods of the region
  • Savor a mouthwatering home-cooked lunch in a manor home
  • Taste and learn about Setubal dessert wines
  • Explore tiny villages tucked away near a UNESCO World Heritage site

We were part of the 2016 Harvest Tour and had the experience of a lifetime! The Douro Valley is breathtakingly beautiful and our guides were wonderful. Ryan and Gabriella must have called in all of their personal favors because we met and drank wine with many winemakers, a wine shop owner and tasted ’72 port which Oscar Quevedo’s grandfather had made. Doesn’t get any more special than that!
