Day 11: Portugal Wine Tour

On our final day with e-Spain and Washington State University Viticulture and Enology wine tour to Portugal, we visited the Council of Vinho Verde located in Porto. The Council provided a presentation and a wine tasting of Vinho Verde wines. Before the wine presentation, we were taken on a tour of the landscaped garden overlooking the Douro River.

The presentation was informative and friendly. Colorful slides helped to provide information about the terroir, grape varieties and the characteristics of the wine.

After the presentation, we enjoyed a delightful private concert of Fado music by one of Portugal’s famed musicians Rita Ruivo.

Returning to The Yeatman hotel, we had a farewell lunch beginning with a port cocktail.

Presentation was lovely!








We knew we would miss our many new friends who participated in the Portugal wine tour, and hope to meet up with them again in future wine travels.

We stayed an extra two days in  Porto so we could visit more of the many Port lodges in the city.
