Best Portugal Wine Tours

Did you know that Portugal is a popular wine destination? Traditions and secrets opened to this region by ancient Carthaginians, Greeks, and Romans gave birth to Portuguese wine. In the times of the Roman Empire, Portugal exported its wines to Rome, and after the Methuen Treaty in 1703, the country developed trade with England. Since that commerce, the variety of Portuguese wine expanded, and Douro Valley became one of the first wine-producing regions in the world. Taking a wine tour to the Douro Valley Wine Region (Douro Vinhateiro), which is protected by UNESCO as World Heritage, is a must for every wine enthusiast also because many grape varieties are unique and grow only in Portugal. For example, Porto wine tours are a perfect chance to taste the wine heritage of ancient civilizations. Despite being in the shadow of its more popular touristic destinations such as Spain, France, and Italy, Portugal is capable of surprising you. The magnificent medieval castles, the most hospitable people, gorgeous shoreline, and, on top of it all, prospering wine industry, are calling you up to explore the riches of Portugal!
