The silent art of the portwine-maker (2 days)
Intense port wine route in the emblematic wine region of Douro and Porto
There is now a highly savoury region that every travelling winelovers needs to tick once in their lifetime: Douro and Northern Portugal
I have invested time and have progressed greatly into wine knowledge over these years. My interest in wine started like an affair with sparkling wines, particularly Champagne and then Cava , learning directly from the producers in Penedes. I started to read on all wine topics. I am resolutely an insider when it comes to Spain and Portugal, with a special mention to the people behind wines. In the world of wine, I keep on learning new stuff every day like a rocky. The day I approach the wine culture with a snobby attitude will damper any progress and excitment, I don't want that! The wine culture is best grabbed in serenpidity, it's about accidental occurences..and lots of fun.
To me, there is no better plan than the one that allows everyone to discover wine regions at their own pace, through entertaining and endless conversation while strolling in the vineyards.
I have enthusiastically led international groups on more than 15 different destinations.
Thank you so much for a very enjoyable afternoon on your Sierra de Francia tour. Your passion & interest in this region, & Bodega Cambrico knowledge & enthusiasm for the vineyard, along with your translations of such, made for a very informative & enjoyable outing.
Great company, lovely wine, beautiful towns & countryside.
P.S. We may be enjoying one of those bottles we bought right now :)
Just a little word of thanks for your Slowwines people! I thought our trip got off to a bad start, as upon arrival at the airport in Madrid, the rental car agency never seem to have heard of us! We called the Spanish office straight away and in less than half an hour, we had a nice car to start our self-drive tour to Ribera del Duero. Instructions were clear, this wasn't just a map an a few directions. The tour itself was perfectly timed and measured! We never drove long distances and arrived at the scheduled visits without hurrying! That was pure pleasure.
