"Each man has their dream" Luis Pato The dream of the son of Francisco Ferreira (Popa) was held by acquiring a vineyard in Douro, in one of the best locations in the oldest wine region in the world, in which reside all his childhood memories. After its purchase, in 2003, at the time named as "Quinta do Vidiedo", led all his economic effort, dedication and perseverance adding small parcels, mostly old vineyards and others for planting new vineyards and groves, equally blessed by a soil quality and raised in terraces under the splendor of the Douro river. In 2008 this dreamer, with the support of his family and the oenologist Luis Pato, start a new cycle and pays tribute to his deceased father baptizing the vineyard with his nickname "Popa",attributed by his friends due to the liveliness and happiness which he led the life against the difficulties. Today, the Quinta do Popa comprises 14 hectares of vineyard composed of a mixture of noble grape varieties, all with the letter A, among them Tinta Roriz, followed by Touriga Franca, Tinto Cao, Sousao and Malvasia Preta with emphasis in large percentage of Touriga Nacional, apart from three hectares of old vineyards aged over 60 years of age. A project based on a family structure that connects different generations, which is reflected in the actual production process, in which reconcile the most sophisticated techniques with centuries of strict tradition, such as the vinification through foot treading in granite mills with conditions of temperature control, and in building a brand with personality and quality, created by its history and the harmonious marriage between the earth and its atmosphere that terroir has to offer.

Paolo was a most gracious captain and host! We were 2 couples, that only had one day in the valley, and we felt spending it with Paolo gave us a taste of all there is to do in the area. It was too chilly to swim, but we did enjoy a couple hours on the boat. He told us about the wineries, the port industry and the history of the valley. Afterwards we drove to his family's vineyard which had spectacular views of the river and valley. We walked through the vines and he gave us a tour of their production area. Then he prepared a nice lunch for us and we sampled the wines they produced. We felt like we were leaving a good friend at the end of our day. If you're short on time and want something that checks all the boxes, this is a fun way to do it. If you have more time, it would be a great way to familiarize yourself with the area and get an insiders view about where to visit or do tastings. Highly enjoyable day with a very sweet man and his dog!

Quinta Santa Eufemia was founded in 1864 by Bernardo Rodrigues Carvalho, and now is managed by the fourth generation of the Family who have been producing these fine old Douro Port wines, preservinf the alge-old-skills of winemaking and ageing.Situated on the left side of the river Douro, with over 45 hectares under vines, the vineyard produces grapes of the richest varieties, trodden in the traditional way and fermented on granite vats in order to extract their finest essences.The wine is aged in oak casks before being selectively blended to satisfy the most refined palates.
Came on a tour with seven other people. One of the owners (Theresa) led the taste test. Her sister is the vintner. We tasted 1 white and four red ports. I know now which ports need to be drunk quickly because they will oxidize -...MoreThank you for your words, but please do not keep my port wine "forever"; do not forget that we need to sell some bottles ;)

The Castle of Penedono is located in the centre of the medieval village of Penedono, it seems that the village was inhabited at least the Pre-Roman times, and they tell that it is one of the most interesting and probably the most unique fortresses in the whole of Portugal. The Castle of Penedonos is also known under the name of “Castelo do Magriço”, and is almost 947 metres above the sea level. The castle has been the home of the noble family Coutinho during the Portuguese dynastic crisis of 1383-1385. You will also find in the surrounding area of the castle antique weapons. Al together it is a very nice location and certainly worth the visit, park the car and everything to see like the castle, the Church and the chapel are all in an a walking distance, you do not need to visit the tourist info at the feet of the castle, because the only thing you get is a leaflet from the castle, nothing more, and the visit of the castle is for free.

This was the only vineyard stop on our short drive. Exhilarating view! The drive up to the guest building was very challenging if you are the least afraid of heights... but worth it.
We did forgo the (expensive) guided tour(s) and opted to walk around the property instead. We had a tasting of a white port (I like port, my wife doesn't) and admired the scenery.
