All about the Douro Grape Harvest Experience.

Visiting the Douro wine region at harvest time offers you the chance to actively participate in the wine-making process.

Join the local grape picking teams as they snip their way down rows of grape vines, and sit down with them to share meals.

You’ll also get to tour the winery for a better understanding of how they make the wines before tasting the finished product.

After a hearty traditional lunch, you’ll be taught how to tread grapes with your bare feet alongside others in a huge wine tank.

Celebrate your grape harvest experience with a glass of port wine to end the day.
