Det skal I lave

We've designed this Experience focused on wine lovers! Our mission is to be alternative and out-of-the-box, while showing the authentic soul of a new generation of Douro Valley wines & winemakers!

We are constatly looking for ways to escape the most beaten paths and spots.

We have carefully selected a couple of boutique wineries, where you'll have an overview about their unique wine making process & lifestyle, taste quality centered wines & good food. All in the unforgettable scenery of the Douro valley and river!

You will get to meet the winemaker at each of the family-run wineries.
There you'll taste the future of Douro dry wines: organic and with little or no intervention. Smoothly paired with tapas which can include almonds, cod/meat pies, their extra-virgin olive oil, cheese, charcuteries, dried fruits, bread and fruit of the season.

In sum: You will taste pure and simply, handcrafted wines! Made with respect for nature and for the process. Authentic with capital "A"!

This is a great opportunity, not only for tasting, the finest Douro wines but also to speak directly to the people that make them.

If you are looking to enrich your wine knowledge, and are curious for novelties, join the New Douro!

Hi! We are Pedro & Nuno, official "winebassadors" of Portugal.
The passion for the Wine culture brought us together in Porto and it became obvious that we shared the same view about this project.
Both of us think that Wine should be as natural as possible and drank without formalities!
We always looked at the “smaller slice” of independent winemakers and that's where we want to be!
Nuno is a Wine Tourism Master and has a WSET Level 3. He travels the world searching for the perfect experience!
Pedro is the "Wine nerd". He's had courses on tasting Portuguese vino and loves crazy and weird statistics about Wine!
We are not about "schooling" or shopping wine tour clichés. We are all about taking corks out of good bottles, around good food and people.
So if you talk our language (or even better if not!) come and find out what makes us unique!

Her skal du være

We'll start with a drive, for about 35 minutes, until we leave the city behind and make a stop for breakfast or just a coffee at a town bakery.
We then make our way, for about 1 hour, onto the first winery, with time to photo the views over the Douro river and valley.
We'll be at two family vineyards with the winemaker, hearing and sharing stories.
One of them has a panoramic terrace over Pinhão.
After that, we'll drive back to Porto, directly.

We wanted a tour to highlight the other side of the Douro valley--the still red and white wines--and Pedro delivered. We visited two small family owned wineries. Both also do ports but emphasis was on the wines. In both we met members of the family who took time to answer all questions and tour us around. On the drive out Pedro provided a lot of good information on the wine industry. On the way back, our conversation branched into learning more about general life in Portugal and in the Douro since he grew up there. The views, the wines, and the food provided were all fantastic. I would do it again.

Our Douro valley experience was magical! Pedro is the man! His extensive knowledge of The Valley and his numerous friendly and passionate wine producers made the day. Like any working farm or production facility, real life things happen. This day had a few unexpected occurrences. One of the vineyards was closed due to a medical accident. Pedro made a few calls and we were off to see some of the most innovative and exciting new wineries in The Valley. The combination of contemporary wine making and a renewed interest in ancient wine make techniques allowed this experience to satiate the Hollywood vineyard experience and awaken the innovative spirit in all of us.

This tour is the real deal!!!!  If you want a small personal tour of the Douro valley this is the tour to take!!!! The wine tour with Pedro was wonderful!  The wines were delicious, as was the food.  The tour felt very personal.  It was wonderful talking directly to the vintners of the small boutique wineries. Stomping the grapes was a hoot.  This was not a tourist gimmick.  The workers arrived to start their 3 hour shift of stomping as we were finishing up.  All were very welcoming.  Pedro was a fantastic tour guide.  He clearly is knowledgeable about and loves wine.  He is very considerate of his guests. We thoroughly enjoyed his company.

We had a wonderful time on a private tour with Pedro. He arranged a tour that helped us learn a lot about the Douro wine region and provided extra special winery visits. We even learned how to stomp grapes for a batch. Pedro took the time to make us feel very welcome.

Pedro is an exceptionally experienced host and wonderful ambassador for Porto and the Douro Valley. He was flexible, attentive, interesting to speak with, and truly cares about the people he is hosting and their experience with him. We had an amazing time traveling the windy roads of the Douro Valley, meeting boutique vineyard owners/staff/wine makers. It was a perfect day from start to finish

I felt that I was able to really connect with Pedro. Yes, we saw amazing views and tasted great wine. But we got to talk as friends across cultures, which is rare and wonderful. The grape stomping was also fab. it was a chance to be a part of a long history and culture. I left feeling a much closer connection to the people here, the wine I enjoy, and a new way of living. highly recommend this experience.
