Quinta de Pego is a beautiful new property in the Douro and built in the terraces of the vineyard. We stayed here as part of our Porto tour.
Great memories of personal wine tastings with the winemaker and extra attentive Director who greeted us and served us a delightful dinner. Modern accommodations and exceptional guest services made for a delightful visit and certainly highlight why Quinta de Pego received Best of Wine Tourism Awards. These awards are presented each to exemplary wineries who practice great wine tourism through an organization The Great Wine Capitals. The Great Wine Capitals (GWC) is a network of nine major global cities in both the northern and southern hemispheres which share a key economic and cultural asset: their internationally renowned wine regions. It exists to encourage travel, education and business exchanges between the internationally renowned cities of Bilbao/Rioja, Bordeaux, Cape Town, Christchurch/South Island, Florence, Mainz/Rheinhessen, Mendoza, Porto and San Francisco/Napa Valley.
