This excellent wine tour lasts approximately 6-7 hours and stops at two wineries. You will need to provide your own transportation for this trip. You can book this tour with pick up and drop off in Sao Martinho do Porto or Nazaré here.
Quinta da Ribeirinha
A family run, boutique vineyard opening its doors especially for you. Just 15 people bring their different skills to manage this vineyard, producing exceptional wine at exceptional prices. Their main varieties of grapes are Trincadeira Preta, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Fernão Pires, Trincadeira das Pratas , Verdelho and Alicante Bouchet. Your tour includes a complete explanation about the production process and grape varieties and a gentle stroll through the vineyard itself. Also at the vineyard you will be welcomed into the old olive press for a Portuguese meal comprising a 3 course menu with wine including the famous “Sopa Da Pedra” which comes from this particular area and has an interesting story.
In complete contrast to your first stop, Fiuza is a modern, larger scale winery. You will be treated to a tour of the labs and see more of the science of wine making before retiring to the beautifully painted tasting room to try the finished product. The working spaces of Fiuza have been decorated with graffiti art, giving it a very contemporary feel.
Quinta da Ribeirinha can not provide lunch on Saturdays or Sundays, so an alternative venue will be provided.
Fiuza is closed for the first two weeks in August, but you will still be able to visit a neighbouring winery if you wish to book during this period.
