Portugal has brought us many things over the years but the Great British love affair with the grape has seen us take Portuguese wine to our hearts.
This summer, why not combine a break to one of Portugal’s magnificent cities with a wine experience?
Lisbon and Porto are great choices for this kind of break.
The Portuguese capital is not be missed.
This vibrant, cosmopolitan city offers great sightseeing opportunities around its historic landmarks and is truly one of Europe’s most picturesque cities.
Porto is Portugal’s second largest city and was built along the hills overlooking the Douro river estuary and UNESCO awarded World Heritage Status to its historical centre in 1996.
The wine tours available will give you the chance to sample typical wines of the region as well as enjoying guided tours of the cellars and wine presses.
There’s also informative commentary on the wine – making process that you can impress your friends with when you get back home.
You could be soaking up some sun in the city before taking a tour of some of the country’s great vineyards.
So, if you’re looking for something a bit different this year, this could be the answer to your dilemma.
In fact, it could turn out to be a dream trip all round.
