A unique opportunity for a private visit to one
of the Douro's most iconic estates.
Steeped in history, intrigue, and memories of harvests past, Quinta do Vesúvio is one of the most magnificent estates in the Douro Superior, whose wines have gained legendary reputation around the world.
Quinta do Vesúvio is a working estate with a dedicated viticultural team and a centuries-old winery that comes to life during each harvest. It is also a home for the Symington family.
For the first time, we are offering a unique opportunity for a private day visit of this remarkable quinta with a dedicated guide.
Take in the magnificent estate house and chapel; step into the granite lagares in the winery where grapes are trodden by foot; and tour the mountainous vineyards across seven hills.
A tutored tasting of Vesúvio’s finest Douro DOC wines and Vintage Ports will be set up for you amongst the barrels in the old winery. You will then be served a traditional Douro lunch on the balcony at the house overlooking the river.
