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.

Vesúvio Estate Visit
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.

Vesúvio Boat Trip

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.
