We begin our tour in Porto and we drive to the South East towards the Dão region. This region produces elegant wines with soothing aromas, and the Touriga Nacional (red) and Encruzado (white) are the wine varieties that best personify the Dão.

Our first stop will be in between vineyards, as we arrive to a Wine Estate owned by the same family for at least four generations. This Quinta is located in the characteristic “terroir” of Oliveira de Barreiros village, from where we can see the rustic landscape of Serra da Estrela. Here you will visit the estate and taste the Dão wine.

It is time to recover energy and for this we enter one of the most prestigious restaurants in Nelas where a beautiful lunch awaits us, accompanied by the local wine.

After lunch it is time to discover the so-called “Novo Dão”. We will visit a very peculiar and modern wine cellar, the result of a bold and incomparable work, where wines of excellence are made that we will taste.

Our day would not be complete without sampling one of the most famous delicacies in the Dão region – the Serra da Estrela Cheese. We will visit a cheese producer, get to understand the whole process of creating this gastronomic wonder and then taste it. Are you ready for the trip? Book now!

Oportunidade de conhecer produtores de vinho e de queijo

★★★★★ Reviewed by Luiz on 2019-05-06
Minha esposa e eu tivemos excelente experiência em excursão com a guia Beatriz ("Bia do Rio") durante nossa estada no Porto. Pontual, Bia nos pegou para uma tranquila viagem em carro até Viseu e Nelas. Visitamos duas quintas da região do Dão, onde pudemos nos informar sobre castas, produção e características de alguns vinhos. Depois fomos a uma queijaria. Degustamos doces, vinhos, queijos e pudemos almoçar num restaurante elegante e de ótimo serviço. Voltamos no final da tarde com a certeza de que valeu muito a pena o passeio. Tem nossa recomendação, com certeza.
