The best time of the year has arrived!

A melhor época do ano chegou!

It is with great joy that we celebrate the arrival of this year's harvest! At this time of celebration and togetherness, we witness the harmony between nature and the hard work in the vineyards. With a commitment to the winemaking tradition of each region where we are present, our properties in the Douro, Dão and Alentejo welcome the harvest, marking the beginning of a period of dedication and care for our rich cultural heritage.

In this environment, we invite everyone to share in these harvests a moment that praises the essence of wine and the art of viticulture.

At Quinta da Pacheca , the vineyards become a stage of joy with the arrival of the harvest, marking the beginning of the celebration. In September, visitors can choose between two different programs, one more diversified, with a cost of 105 euros per person which includes: starting at 10:00 am with a traditional mata-bicho (onion broth, grilled sardines in corn bread, harmonized with wines from Pacheca); visitors will have the opportunity to equip themselves with straw hats, scarf, cutting scissors and bucket. The work in the vineyards lasts an hour and a half and ends at 12:30 pm, when the traditional wine press is scheduled. The treading of the grapes lasts an hour and then there is a guided tour of the property. After the visit, a typical harvest lunch is served and participants will have the opportunity to participate in a wine tasting. The second option costs 40 euros per person and includes: guided tour of the vineyard, mills, old cellar and wine cellar, accompanied by a wine tasting. Then, work begins in the wine presses with the treading of grapes, where participants will be able to equip themselves with shorts and t-shirts and a locker room to change clothes.
