How to taste wine like a sommelier? You shoud know it requires years of experience, but there are a few basic tricks that anyone can learn very easely. This is a tasting of 8 wines from very good local producers and different regions. Before the tasting starts we will provide an overall view of portuguese wines and regions, at least three different regions. Then the wines will be tasted openly and we'll discuss them, then the interesting part comes, I will change the order of the wines without you knowing and you will try to recognize them again by their characteristics. The tasting will work like a game, since you dont really know what you are tasting, you will have to find out which regions you are tasting according to the information provided and the tasting you did before. Looks hard? Dont worry, its not, its much more easy than what it looks like, it's super didactic and entertaining. We guarantee you will have a good moment for the fun of learning and for the quality of the wines tasted. Very important: we will teach you a method of professional wine tasting and you will acquire the basic skills that you can use for the rest of you rwine life tasting. Traditional bread and water will be provided.

I was born in the country side of Porto where wine was part of normal and everyday life. Already at Porto I worked many years for different big Port producers where i did trainings with some of the best wine makers in Portugal. My love for wine is part of my culture. Im as well certified by WSET with distinction. Since 2013 I own and manage a wine shop at the city center called Touriga Vinhos de Portugal dedicated to small and independent wine producers. At Touriga vinhos de Portugal we maintain high score reviews in all social media, specially at Google and Trip adviser, we were already mentioned in the New York Times and other international publications as a great place for tasting wine and find an impecable wine selection. Presenting an activity in airbnb is excelent way for me to share my knowledge and passion for wine.

We are at heart of Porto 100m from the big square Av dos Aliados, in Rua da Fábrica 32. This location is very easy to find and we have open door to the street. We are a classic wine shop, in the back we have 2 tasting rooms where the Class will take place.

This was a brilliant experience and a great introduction to wine tasting as we were a bunch of amateurs! Davide was very informative and kept things interesting and exciting, as well as being patient with a rather loud group, but also kept us on track! Would definitely recommend this on your visit to Porto!

I was the only one who booked this experience for the evening which meant that I had an amazing private lesson on all things related to Portuguese wine and tasting. You can immediately tell that Davide is super passionate about teaching others the intricacy of wine. I walked away learning so much about wine and how to taste that the knowledge really came in handy for the rest of my stay throughout Portugal. I highly recommend it to those that are looking to experience a wine technique class and are interested in refining their wine tasting skills.

My team and I used Davide´s Blind Wine Tasting Game as a team building activity and everyone loved it to the degree that they felt it was the highlight of our entire team building weekend. Davide is an excellent storyteller and made this experience into much more than just a wine tasting. It was as much educational as it was fun. Would definitely repeat!

I’ve had wine tasting experience booked with Davide and left feeling like I’ve made a new friend. His knowledge of wines and way of explaining and teaching is so easy to digest. I was never a big wine person before and booked this as an intro into the world of wines and so glad I did. Absolutely amazing experience and great value for money. Can’t wait to visit Davide’s wine shop when I’m back in Porto!

This was such a practical and enjoyable experience. My partner and I really enjoyed it and felt like we learned really practical tips to approaching wine generally, as well as the wines of three distinct regions in Portugal. Since this was near the beginning of our trip, we ended up using the tools from the tasting later that week in other tastings. We also bought some great wines from Davide after the session.
