Grape Discoveries shares the real Douro Valley: meet two Portuguese cousins living the generations-old Douro life in their family manor homes.
Totally off-the-beaten-path, this “only-us” tour gives your group an intimate glimpse of Douro society through a charming and delightful family involved in making wine in the Valley since the 1700’s. Teresa and José are cousins with big hearts, heaps of character, a great sense of fun, and plenty of stories to share.
