Six Senses Douro Valley’s wine programme


Go back to the e-newsletter


Wine is the centrepiece of Six Senses Douro Valley, so it was natural to develop a wine programme that is educational, interactive and fun, with very experienced Francisca van Zeller and Sandra Tavares da Silva having been appointed as wine directors.

In the wine programme, a Master Wine List has been created for the Wine Club, where selected winemakers from the region come to the resort to showcase their wines. Carefully selected wines can be enjoyed in the Quinta Bar and Lounge or at the Wine Library, where most of the resort’s events are held. There are daily wine tastings with complementary tapas, plus several wine activities outside of the hotel. A wine certificate programme with three different levels commends guests for their wine knowledge. In the resort’s wine boutique, all the wines on the Master Wine List are available for purchase with shipping available to their home countries.

Daily wine tastings are just one of the highlights of the programme. They are held at 7pm in the Wine Library and led by one of the wine experts. There is a different selection of wines each day, which allows guests to understand and gain deeper knowledge of the Douro and the diversity of its wines. The wine list represents a sensory journey that goes upriver from the city of Oporto, through the different terroirs of the Douro Valley and into the neighbouring Spanish Ribera del Duero.

Guests may participate in specially designed and themed wine tastings such as Meandering Mondays, Tasty Tuesdays and Singular Sundays, where a flight of wines has been selected to offer guests a wider view of Douro Valley’s exceptional offerings. Just along the main corridor of the resort, guests may be enticed into the Wine Boutique where some of the rarest wines from the Douro and all the 700 wines from the Master Wine List are available for purchase and shipping. Apart from wines, there is a range other local gourmet products such as olive oil, honey and almonds, fruit jams, liquors and specially produced cork accessories.
