PORTUGAL/SPAIN Two-Country 3-Day Wine Tour, linked by a Douro River Cruise Wine Tour in Portugal and Spain
The tour starts at 8pm on Saturday 15th September 2018 at the Vintage House Hotel in Pinhão, Portugal. The tour ends at 6pm on Tuesday 18th September at the Carlton Rioja in Logroño, Spain
Although a Wine-Tour in its own right, the tour has been conceived as the ideal way to link our Douro Valley 6-day Wine-Tour with our 3-day Rioja Wine-Tour. For a shorter alternative, this tour combined with the 3-day Rioja Wine Tour also makes for an unusual and interesting experience.
The tour starts with a welcome dinner at 8pm at the 5* Vintage House Hotel in Pinhão. The hotel is easily reached by an incredibly picturesque train journey from Porto to Pinhão and the hotel is within walking distance of the station.
The next morning we set off after breakfast on a River Boat to Barca d’Alva near the Spanish border. The scenery is nothing short of stunning. Port tastings and lunch are provided on board. From Barca d’ Alva we will be driven to the city of Salamanca where we will spend that night.
In the morning, we head for Tudanca in Aranda de Duero. Tudanca is a 4* hotel, with a magnificent restaurant. It is right in the heart of an important Spanish Wine region, so our night there breaks up the journey to Logrono with some excellent gastronomy and a winery visit before we leave.
The next evening we reach Logroño where we start our Rioja tour. Our Portugal/Spain Two-country Tour finishes with our arrival in Logroño estimated at around 6pm. We hope participants will stay on with us for our 3-day Rioja Tour.
