Experience Highlights

DOURO VALLEY WINES

A host of wine-influenced activities

Visit some of the oldest wineries in the world producing vintages from the valley’s vine-filled terraces; join the fascinating wine certificate program, unique harvest activities and more.

Assault to Port Knox

Everyone knows that money in good hands grows with time - but did you know that Port grows in quality and also in value when well stored and when cared for? Quinta do Mourão, the neighboring property of Six Senses Douro Valley has a well-kept secret that we are now revealing to our guests.

In a cellar on top of the mountain that overlooks the hotel, huge wooden vats are the vessels for ageing Ports, some being more than 100 years old. Hints of caramel, nuts and dried fruits perfume the cellar, with its color transforming from bright red to shades of gold and tints of green.

This experience starts with a walk up the hill through the vineyard that leads to what is called Port Knox, a cool wine cellar with ageing Ports. The owner of the property will greet you and guide you through a tasting straight from the source of where one of the world’s greatest wines is produced. Selecting what you will taste from casks of Port Wine that have been ageing for 10, 20, 40 and even 100 years will certainly be a very memorable experience!


Price per guest: EUR 70

Walking duration: 20 minutes up and 20 minutes down the hill

Tasting time: One hour


Wine Tasting

As the heart of the resort is the Wine Library & Terrace. It is here that you will enjoy private wine-tastings of the Douro Valley’s best vintages expertly guided by the resort’s sommelier. 


The Hidden Douro

Among the historic vineyards, discover some rare jewels such as Quinta de Ervamoira, which is a 45-minute helicopter trip from the resort; Quinta do Crasto on the right bank of the Douro River; and beautiful Quinta Nova are just 15 minutes away by helicopter. Quinta do Vesúvio and Quinta do Bom Retiro are usually not  open to the public but we know who has the keys...
