Quinta do Vallado is one of the oldest and most famous Quintas in the Douro Valley in Portugal. In 2005, the Ribeiro family decided to open a hotel next to their celebrated winery. Each year they now welcome countless guests who typically include those wishing to enjoy the Douro Valley and lovers of fine wine. The family is highly involved in the day-to-day running of this successful wine hotel, something which is abundantly evident from the extremely personal service.
The 13-room wine hotel is a charming blend of modern and traditional; 5 rooms are located in the original manor house and 8 in the modern Quinta. All of the comfortable rooms are furnished with hotel standard beds and equipped with en-suite bathrooms. The rooms in the modern Quinta additionally benefit from a private balcony. Their interiors are a showcase for local, high quality Portuguese materials. A buffet breakfast, including eggs as you like them, is served each morning, guaranteeing the perfect start to your day. The hotel is also happy to rustle up a delicious, honest dinner featuring fresh, local products, ingredients from their very own garden and carefully selected wines. And there’s a cosy, tastefully decorated living room, where you can enjoy a well-earned drink from the honesty bar. The hotel boasts a spacious, verdant garden that’s brimming with orange trees and houses the private swimming pool.
During a stay at Quinta do Vallado, you may participate in a fascinating wine tour in which you’ll witness the entire wine making process from harvest to bottle and, of course, get to sample the organic Vallado wines. So, make sure you leave plenty of space in your suitcase, if you’re planning to enjoy these delicious wines back home! Fancy learning how to make the perfect wine-food pairings? Then why not participate in one of the fun cooking classes on offer?
