Vinho Verde or Green Wine. Most people know it, a lot of them have tried it and everyone loves it. On our daily tours to the Douro Valley we noticed this from our guests who keep asking if we are going to taste Green Wine during that tour. Thinking about them, and about you, we decided to create this experience.
We’ll start in the morning with a medium size producer located in a lovely manor house which was built between the 12th and the 18th century. After a tour around the house, your first taste will take place: one “alvarinho” and one white “vinho verde” will be paired with some local delicious treats. A short drive to the second winery will follow and there you are going to experience an authentic small producer located in a picturesque property where the owner himself will welcome you warmly and will tell you precious information about green wine.
We’ll head then to Guimarães, the first capital of Portugal and a UNESCO heritage site. This is where we’re going to have a truly genuine Portuguese lunch, with delightful meal options and, of course, green wine. A nice digestive walk through the narrow streets of Guimarães will complete our journey before we head back to Porto.
By the end you’ll understand better Green Wine and why it is not green and you will be knowing much more about the first steps of Portugal as an independent kingdom and nation.
