Perhaps unsurprisingly wine-tourism has become a very popular and sought after activity in Portugal. It is in the Alentejo and Douro regions that this new form of tourism has developed most, however wine lovers can find examples of production all over the country. Many wineries and estates open their doors and allow tourists to take part in the grape harvest, taste wines, visit wine cellars, and often partner with the regional hotels and restaurants to offer a complete wine enthusiast experience.
The desire to know more about wine by accessing each part of the winemaking process, from the production methods to the gastronomic pairings, allows visitors to Portugal a journey through flavours and aromas. It also offers the opportunity to understand the history, culture and traditions of the places where wine is produced.
