I'll be travelling to Lisbon and Porto at the end of June this year. We will be about three days in each place and then to Spain. Do you have any recommendations for specific wineries or wine focused activities while there? We will be four total people in both Lisbon and Porto. I have received some good restaurant recommendations for Lisbon by a Guild friend who was recently there, so perhaps more of the wine focused activities or tours in Lisbon and wineries and port houses in Porto would be most useful.
Hi! I am from Porto and work here so if you need anything specific just let me know. On wine and dine, I also recommend Vinum(where I used to work) for the view and ambience, definitely book a tour for Graham's as it has the best visiting tours. To try different Ports on your own desire(no prefixed flights) I also recommend Taylor's. My high recommendations to eat downtown are SEMEA by Euskalduna for small plates delicious meals, or Brasão Aliados for the traditional "Francesinha"(Porto's most famous heavy protein dish). I would also be thrilled to make reservations at my workplace "DOP".
If you are here for 3 days please save a day for the Douro Valley, and even if you're not planning to rent a car, take a train up to Pinhão as the landscape is Unesco Heritage pretty, and around there you can also find some "Quinta"'s that you can visit for tasting.
I hope you have a great time here, and if you need anything else let me know!
Thanks Diogo! How may I contact you about the reservation at DOP?
