Whenever a conversation veers towards Portuguese white wines, the lush green region of Vinho Verde is inevitably spoken, where white wine is king, and the Alvarinho grape variety holds center stage.
On this fabulous one day tour, you’ll not only go deep into Vinho Verde’s vinous, gastronomical and cultural heritage, but you’ll dispel several misheld beliefs on both the quality and ageing potential of Vinho Verde wines.
“It’s not easy to plan a wine trip, especially for a group that expects a high level of wine communication, education, and experience. Ryan Opaz and the team at Catavino exceeded all expectations in my first visit to the Douro. The knowledge base they represented, the contacts they have, and the professionalism they exhibited is of the highest caliber. Beyond that, and possibly most importantly, Ryan was simply a blast to travel with.”
Meet expert wine guide and Catavino CEO, Ryan Opaz, at your Porto Hotel lobby before taking off towards the Melgaço, a stunning northern town bordering Spain. Surrounded by undulating hills, forests, and of course, lush vineyards, the setting couldn’t be more breathtaking. Here you’ll experience both a tour and premium wine tasting at one of the oldest Vinho Verde producers renowned for their spectacular white wines. After your visit, you’ll head toward Ponte de Lima to visit the second producer, equally famed but also hosting a decked out regional lunch just for you. You’ll not only taste through their exceptional wines with lunch, but you’ll also be treated to a private tour and additional tasting.
