Douro and Wines
The Douro wines have ancient roots and they have evolved over many years into this liquid delicacy that nowadays delights our taste buds. Drinking a glass of Port Wine is like drinking a glass of history itself, the history of this region governed by wine.
Douro region has two wine routes which cover the points of interest connected to wine production. In 1996, the European Union created the Port Wine Route under the Dyonisios Program. This route encompasses around 50 quintas, options for accommodation, wineries, wine cellars and restaurants. The Cister Wine Route, created on 14th March 2011 in the region of Távora-Varosa, covers eight municipalities in the Douro sub-region: Armamar, Lamego, Moimenta da Beira, Penedono, São João da Pesqueira, Sernancelhe, Tabuaço and Tarouca.
Visitors can take part in wine tasting sessions and they can purchase their favourites at the vineyard's own shop. Port Wine, wines from the DOC controlled Douro region, Moscatel and sparkling wines will tickle the taste buds of all wine lovers.
