This tour will take you on a half-day journey to visit the city of Guimarães. In the city of Guimarães you will enjoy its beauty and simplicity. This is the "cradle" of Portuguese nationality and the first important city of the kingdom of Portugal with references that illustrate more than 800 years of history. In fact this was the birthplace of the first King of Portugal, Afonso Henriques, who against his own mother';s will, initiated the Portuguese nation starting from the castle on the top of the highest hill of Guimarães. The Dukes of Bragança Palace, built in the 1st half of the 15th century, stands out for its well-known Pastrana tapestries, portraying important events related to the maritime discoveries of the 15th century; its porcelain collection from the Indian Company; the Portuguese ceramics; the Flemish tapestries, amongst many other valuable pieces. Then, walking through the narrow streets of the historical center, you’ll enter the beautiful square of Oliveira (classified as a Heritage Cultural UNESCO site) and you’ll be tempted to stop for a cup of coffee in one of its street cafes.

During this private tour you will be able to experience all the charm and history of Porto. You will start with a panoramic drive towards the trendiest and most cultural areas of the city called Boavista and Foz. This is where some of the best museums of the city are located (like Serralves) and also where the Atlantic meets the Douro River providing the ideal location for the upper class residences.

Once you reach the historical city center, considered World Heritage by UNESCO, you will have more than enough time to explore the Church of São Francisco. This old simple gothic Franciscan church is now known as "the cave of gold" in an astonishing exhibit of wealth and power. Right next door you'll find the Stock Exchange Palace with incredible granite work and magnificent neo-Arab influences. On your way up to the Cathedral you'll still have time to admire the interesting glazed tiles of the São Bento Railway station. After a visit to the Cathedral (12th century) you will be able to admire the river Douro and all of the port wine lodges that brought fame and fortune to the city.

But a tour in Porto would never be complete without a visit to these wine cellars. After crossing the D.Luis Bridge you will start to smell the aroma of the slowly aging port wine. The massive vats improve the quality of a wine that can last for more than 100 years. During a guided visit of the wine cellars you will learn about its production, storage methods and all the secrets that make this nectar one of the most appreciated in the world before returning back to the cruise port.

A Day in the Rioja Wine Country with a Traditional Lunch - Bilbao - 2018 ( 8 Hours )
Bilbao, Spain | 14 Jun 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Our day begins when we depart the port of Bilbao and head south for the Rioja wine country. The Rioja wine region borders southern Navarra, Castilla y Leon and the Basque Country and offers visitors not only fine Rioja wines and interesting wine museums, but also stunning scenery, prehistoric archaeological findings, award winning contemporary architecture, medieval towns and fine Riojan manor houses. The micro-climate that the Rioja wine region enjoys makes it a privileged area for producing wine that has earned it its well-deserved fame.

Our first stop today is at one of our favorite wineries: CVNE. We will visit the bodega and then taste four of their best wines.

Since 1879, CVNE has at all times belonged to the direct descendants of the Real de Asua family and has always focused in vine growing and winemaking in Rioja. This Haro winery comprises a collection of structures and cellars, most dating from the 19th century, arranged around a central patio. Above the cellars are the winemaking, bottling, and shipping facilities, conserved to this day.

Over time, a series of structures have been built, which reflect the history of the winery. The Eiffel‘s Cellar, designed by the architecture practice of the legendary Alexandre – Gustave Eiffel; The Real de Asúa cellar, a winery inside another winery. The Real de Asua cellar is an independent winery inside the original historic quarters of Cune. This cellar allows for a fully traditional winemaking process subject to the strictest quality controls. The greater wines of the Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España, namely, Real de Asúa and Imperial, are made in this cellar.

We will then continue to Eguren Ugarte Winery where we will enjoy a visit with wine tasting and our lunch. This is a family run winery that has kept up the traditional way of producing wines, while incorporating innovative techniques.

After lunch we will return to the pier.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual wear and comfortable walking shoes. Light to moderate walking over uneven pavement and cobblestones.
