Our mission is to offer you a unique and exclusive Portuguese Wine Tasting Experience in a most fun and informative way as possible, with wines from Douro being paired with authentic Portuguese delicatessen.
During the tasting experience you will have the opportunity to meet the winemaker and/or the winery (via web conference) of some of the most iconic wines. You will be sampling and hearing directly from the producer what makes that wine so special…
A unique wine tasting discovery from the highly acclaimed Douro Boys, a collective of 5 producers from the Douro Valley that completely changed the view on Douro Wines.
The Douro Boys is a group of five wine estates: Quinta do Vallado, Niepoort, Quinta do Crasto, Quinta Vale D. Maria and Quinta do Vale Meão, some of the very best producers in the region.
The Douro Boys have set themselves a clear goal: enabling the dry wines of the Douro to achieve a level of recognition appropriate to their inherent quality, and to position them on an equal footing with port.
And thus, embarked upon this path of putting the Douro Valley where it belongs on the world wine-map, they've not ruled out the positive effect that they will have on the image of Portuguese wines in general.
The wine tasting experience will be conducted by Portuguese winemaker, João Pedro Farinha from Vino Veritas *, with a set of skills to understand the scientific principles associated with winemaking, including desirable characteristics associated with the grape itself, providing the audience with wine knowledge expertise.
The experience will include a total of 8 wines (1 white, 6 reds and 1 port wine) from the Douro Boys, plus some of the best cheeses and cold cuts will be served. Both wines and foods being served are exclusive to Vino Veritas and are rare and sought-after products, such as Quinta do Vale Meão, the birthplace of the first great Portuguese red wine from Douro, Barca Velha, since 1962 and only 19 vintages have been released to date.
Since 1999 the vineyard has been supplying grapes for the making of Vale Meão, which has been receiving great accolades internationally. “Pure Iberico” pork breed ham, acorn fed with a maturation of 40 months, will also be served, alongside some Serra da Estrela and Serpa cheeses. These cheeses have been granted PDO status (Protected designation of origin, which means they can only be produced in a very limited area in Portugal) in the European Union, therefore very limited production.
We guarantee a truly rich gourmet experience in a private and secluded environment!
