The Experience

Wine has been produced on these steep, stone-walled terraces for 2,000 years, and the views of the Pinhão valley are breathtaking. Wander down to Patricía’s vineyard, a 1km stroll. Pre-book a picnic, sample the wines, listen to the stories.

On the upper floor of this old village house are two rustic-chic boltholes, small but perfectly formed: ‘Alfredo’ with a big view-filled terrace, and ‘Pedreira’, a compact studio with a tiny courtyard. Find hand-woven rugs on grey resin floors and a wonderful welcome basket that includes their own wines.

Pootle down the Douro on a traditional ‘rabelo’. Visit Lamego with its amazing hilltop shrine. Plan a day trip to Porto, a 90-minute drive. For first class food and wines, head for ‘Cacho d’Oiro’ in Peso da Régua, 35km, and the rustically stylish ‘Cais da Villa’ in Vila Real, 25km. Wineries abound!

Introducing

Patrícia Magalhães

In 2013, Patricia from Porto decided to swap the city for the Douro. In 2017, Patrícia found "two small vineyards belonging to the family of an accomplished and dedicated viticulturist, Mr. Alfredo." Now she is passionately producing red and white wines - and welcoming guests into her life. "All these processes - the vineyard, the wine and the people - are inseparable."
