Visit the Region


Just as the banks of a river, in the Port Wine “region” tourism and gastronomy run side by side, with the visitor being lead from one discovery to another. The discovery of the Douro, its people, its wine growers, its estates (“quintas”), places of hospitality, original and charming and included in many leisure packages, such as the Port Wine Route. A web of places of national heritage, and of scenic, gastronomic, cultural and historic interest, it is comprised of 54 sites of renowned tourist value. The region is the discovery of the Port Wine Lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia, a city facing Oporto – a UNESCO world heritage site. It is in these lodges that most of a unique treasure – Port Wine – is gracefully aged. These premises date back to the 19th century and visitors may enjoy a guided tour plus a Port Wine tasting. The region is also the discovery of the Solares do Vinho do Porto, in Régua, Oporto and Lisbon, run by the I.V.D.P.-Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e Porto. Here, visitors may try different styles of Port Wine in a refined and welcoming atmosphere. Finally, it is the discovery of Port Wine itself and the fascinating art of buying, keeping and enjoying it.
