The vines and wine are omnipresent as they huddle on almost every hillside, but there’s the Douro River and its reflections of blue hues.

We will walk through the charming Alto Douro region of the hillsides of Pinhão and Provesende in an autumnal atmosphere, where the colors of the vines bring out the browns, oranges, and yellows. We will take a cruise on the Douro in a small Rabelo boat and two walks among vineyards and stories of the region, we will visit a winery, where we will try some wines or we would not be in the Land of the Nectar of the Gods.
