Day 1

Arrive in the heart of Porto and discover Vila Nova de Gaia. Separated from Porto by the sweeping Douro River, this bustling town is the true home of Port production – the perfect place to kick off your trip with a tour of the ageing cellars and a tasting of fine wines

Day 2

Today, you’ll head to the vineyards in the midst of their harvest, and, after a wine tasting with the vintners and a lunch of local delicacies paired with classic Portuguese wines, you’ll take part in the grape treading part of the wine-making process; your contribution to the year’s harvest!

Day 3

The final day of your trip is yours to explore Porto. The city reveals its magical secrets as you wander its charming streets, taking in such splendid sights as the Porto Cathedral, the gothic-style Church of Saint Francis and the old Stock Exchange Palace
