When arriving at the Pinhão Station, we have a bus transfer that will take us to Quinta da Avessada, where we will be received in a festive atmosphere, with popular music and a few treats from the region, such as: the traditional bread and bola de carne (a type of bread stuffed with meat). There is muscatel for the adults!
I have already planned everything with my friends and we will take part in the grape harvest. Each of us will be given a bucket and scissors. Provided with tools and some recommendations, we begin the grape harvest … A festivity!
In the afternoon, we will visit the mills and I believe we can take part in the grape-stomping, always in a festive atmosphere, with traditional songs from the Douro.
Did you know that wine from the Douro is so good that it has gained a ton of national and international awards? It’s true. Sometimes, during family dinners, I hear my dad and grandad saying wine from the Douro is amongst the best in the world.
Consult the program, come along!
