Wine Tasting Tours on the Silver Coast of Portugal

Wine Tasting Tours on the Silver Coast of Portugal


Think of wine tasting, and France or Spain tends to spring to mind, however, Portugal boasts some of the most superb wines in Europe, and very reasonably priced too!

One of the best ways of exploring the Silver Coast is to follow one of the wine routes originally established by the region’s tourist board. It’s a great day out, and on our tours, we even throw in a chance for you to taste some delicious Silver Coast cuisine, which compliments the wine no end!

The Silver Coast offers three established wine routes that take in not just some of the leading vineyards of the area, but some of its historic sights as well. So if you like history, walking, and wine, these tours are heavenly!

The Óbidos wine route begins in Bombarral and winds through the countryside taking in the historic walled medieval town of Óbidos and the city of Caldas da Rainha with its thermal springs and beautiful park, before heading inland to the rural town of Alvorninha. As with most vineyards in the Silver Coast region, visits to the quintas on this wine route must be booked in advance. Themed Holiday Ideas can arrange your booking for you at the best possible price, be it a tour for only 2 people, or large groups.
Need some where to stay? No problem, we have hand picked some great accommodation on the Silver Coast and are still adding to this at the moment.
We look forward to seeing you on our Portugal wine tasting tours!
