Description

Our day begins at Porto. We start moving South, towards the Bairrada region, famous for its gastronomy but also increasingly by the fantastic wines it produces with its characteristic variety: Baga. With this are produced sparkling huge fineness and high creaminess, as well as red wines of dark and concentrated aroma color.

The first stop will be in Aveiro. Here we will take a walk around the city famous for its canals and typical boats, but also for Art Noveau and local pastries.

Now we will taste the most typical sweet from Aveiro, the soft eggs. This is a real gift from the Nuns to the World!

We move on to the heart of the Bairrada region, where we will find the Aliança Underground Museum. We will visit the underground tunnels where all the art is stored and taste three awarded sparkling wines.

It's time to taste the typical Bairrada delicacy - Bairrada Roasted Suckling Pig! For this, we will go to Mealhada, the Mecca of the suckling pig in Portugal. This is a unique opportunity to taste this dish at the most famous spot in the country! (if you don’t like the sound of this, we can provide a different main dish).

To end our day we will visit the cellar owned by the Man that personifies the Bairrada - Luis Pato! Here we will visit his winery and taste the delicious nectars to which he has already accustomed us. You can not miss this! Then we return to Porto. Are you ready for the trip? Book now!
