Letango tours Portugal Wine Tour

 

Intro

We have designed our 12 Day luxury Wine Tour of Portugal to include exclusive and hand selected wine regions that represent some of the best wines of Portugal. Our itinerary provides a perfect mix of wineries, delicious cuisine and gorgeous scenery as we crisscross the country from the south to the north. You will begin to understand why Portugal is one of the best hidden secrets of Europe and the wine is no exception. From cosmopolitan Lisbon through cork filled Alentejo all the way into colorful Porto, you will be amazed at the natural beauty, the history and luxury. As we wind our way up the Douro, you will marvel in the acres of hillsides filled with terraced vineyards producing the grape of the famous Port wine. Pull up your pants, and lets stomp some grapes together practicing methods from the ancient days! Our journey will bring us to the noble Quintas and luxury hotels that will envelop you in exquisite surroundings tending to all of your senses in a peaceful and relaxed setting. We will sail along the Douro river while admiring the rolling hills and vineyards in this region that has earned the attention of wine connoisseurs from around the world. Our itinerary will also take us through the cork forests of the Alentejo, another up and coming region in its reputation for world class wines. Cities like Evora are fast becoming part of the winery spotlight for the fine reds and whites.

Our carefully planned itinerary will feature a nice balance between sightseeing, history, food and wine, walks and museums.  As this is a private tour, we can be a little flexible, so let us know if you have a specific request and we will do our best to accommodate you.
