A Douro journey like no other. We have partnered with Rivus to create an incredibly special, private boat trip from our Quinta do Bomfim estate near Pinhão, to Quinta do Vesúvio.
Winding your way upriver towards the spectacular Valeira Dam, you will be served local aperitifs paired with our wines. Among the many stunning views, the emergence of Quinta do Vesúvio as you approach by boat is magnificent.
You will be greeted with drinks in the beautiful Vesúvio gardens, followed by a traditional lunch on the terrace overlooking the river, paired with our family's wines and ports.
In the afternoon, you will visit the estate's winery and cellar, dating back to 1827, and can explore the vineyards. The train will take you back to Pinhão along the river.
