If you plan to visit our wineries, please keep in mind to schedule a visit. Although most of us offer touristic tours, we don’t all live in the Douro. To prevent you from waiting in front of closed gates, please let us know, when you want to come around.
We also want to make you are aware of the fact that our Quintas are separated by substantial distances:
Quinta do Vallado ⇔ Quinta do Crasto
30km / 45 minutes
Quinta do Crasto ⇔ Quinta do Vale Meão
130km / 2 hours
Quinta do Vale Meão ⇔ Van Zellers and Co.
65km / 1,5 hours
Van Zellers and Co. ⇔ Quinta de Nápoles (Niepoort)
15km / 20 minutes
Quinta de Nápoles (Niepoort) ⇔ Quinta do Vallado
15km / 15 minutes
It’s also very convenient to start from Porto and go straight on the highway to Vila Nova de Foz Côa (2 hours and 15 minutes), if you want to start with a visit at Quinta do Vale Meão or Casa do Rio (Quinta do Vallado).
We suggest staying at least 2 and ½ days to have a relaxed journey and to visit two Quintas per day.
