Rambling vineyards and charming native farms cling to the steep sides of the Douro River Valley, creating an incomparable backdrop to one of Europe’s most unspoiled regions and to Port country— the world’s oldest demarcated wine region. Sail roundtrip from Porto, the beautiful “City of Bridges”; visit Regua, the ‘capital’ of the Douro Valley; and marvel at Salamanca, the UNESCO- designated “Golden City.” Taste wines from historic wineries and soak up the genuine beauty of one of Europe’s most unadulterated landscapes.

Join Michael and Jennifer Keenan in Portugal on a magical experience: 3 nights in Lisbon and 1 night in Porto, followed by a 7-night deluxe river cruise through Portugal’s remote Douro River Valley. The ancient Romans planted these steep, terraced vineyards over 2,000 years ago, which produce exquisite red wines and the finest fortified port wine.
On board the ship AmaVida, Michael will conduct two tastings and one paired dinner with the extraordinary, multi-award winning wines from the Keenan Winery, high on Spring Mountain above St. Helena California. This once-in-a-lifetime holiday is dedicated to food and fine wine. Join us!
