Twin Cities Wine Education, along with Catavino of Portugal, is arranging for a wine tour, truly the a trip of a lifetime, in Spain and Portugal from September 1-8, 2023.

Called by wine tour organizer and expert Ryan Opaz of Catavino, “the trip I’ve always wanted to plan,” this will be an epic journey of one of the most important rivers in the wine world, from source to ocean.

In early September 2023, a small group of lucky wine travelers will gather in Northern Spain near the historic city of Burgos and begin the Duero (Douro) River journey. Going into the mountains, you’ll reach the source of the legendary river.

Along the way over seven days, you will experience top-level service, incredible accommodations, epic meals (including a Michelin-starred restaurant to finish to the trip), and wine education as the group travels through Ribera del Duero, Toro, Rueda, and the Douro Valley of Portugal before ending in the city of Porto.

Winery visits, winemaker dinners, harvest, boat journeys, and private tours of Porto’s markets and Port Lodges are just part of what will make this such a great experience.

This is a luxury small-group tour. Final pricing and tour details, along with the first opportunity at reservations, will be released in November 2022 to those that sign up below.

The tentative dates are September 1-8, 2023.

Plans are being crafted right now.

Pricing is being figured as you read this. Note: this is a no-messing-around luxury trip. You’ll receive pricing details with your insider’s registration email.

More info soon, plus info on future trips. We have some cool stuff coming up.
