The new digital platform means visitors can access and experience the excitement and history of winemaking in Portugal through numerous wine pairing tourism experiences throughout the country. In addition, there is more on events, local tips and information about each region.
Featured activities include carriage rides with wine pairing, a bicycle tour in the Vinho Verde region, grape harvesting in Alentejo and a hiking trail along the Caminhos de Santa Luzia – Pico, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
