You will then cruise down a road with a vineyard on both sides in the direction of Nelas. By this point, you will no doubt be hungry and so you will stop at one of the most prestigious restaurants in Nelas for lunch accompanied by local wine.
 
After lunch, you will discover the so-called "Novo Dão". The tour will take you to a very peculiar and modern wine cellar, the result of bold and incomparable work, where wines of excellence are made that you will of course taste.
 
Your day would not be complete without sampling one of the most famous delicacies in the Dão region - the Serra da Estrela Cheese. You will visit a cheese producer, learn about the whole process of creating this gastronomic wonder and then taste it.
