Since the Dawn of man’s existence in the Douro Valley, there are traces of wine production. The microclimate, the schist soils and the great advantage of the river as a means of transport made this wine famous. Navigation was always the way to carry the precious wine down to Oporto. Amongst incredible conditions and enormous difficulties, the boats sailed by the force of the current, the wind and by sheer human will. The Douro became known worldwide, for its wines, it’s landscape’s architecture, it’s culture and it’s boats and navigation.
This is the scenario you will enjoy in this activity. We invite you to embark on a unique experience aboard of our Wine Boat Senhora do Carmo, which will make the connection between wine, landscape, culture and navigation.
The trip will begin at Ferrão, where you will embark on a private boat trip along the Douro River, lasting 1h30m, towards Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo. During the trip, you will be served a glass of wine to taste, while enjoying the magnificent natural landscape along the way.
After the boat trip, you will disembark at Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo, where you will have lunch, a 3 Moments Tasting Menu, paired with Quinta Nova wines. At the end of lunch, you will have the opportunity to get to know the Quinta Nova wine estate, on a guided tour of the winery & Wine Museum Center.
The program will end with a transfer back to Ferrão Sul (Casa dos Peixinhos).
