A Two-Day Foray into Portuguese Wine

The Yeatman hotel in Oporto, Portugal, is cracking open its 25,000-bottle wine cellar for two days—Saturday and Sunday, November 30 and December 1—for guests to taste more than 100 of the country’s best wines. Many of the property’s wine brands and winemakers will be on hand to take guests through tastings of the Alves de Sousa Reserva Pessoal (personal reserve) 2005, the Quinta Nova Reserva Tinto 2011, and dozens of ports—which the city and region are known for—including Churchill’s 10 Year Old Dry White Port, Fonseca Guimaraens Vintage Port 1996, and Taylor’s 1964 Single-Harvest Tawny Port. During the event, guests will be served Portuguese cheeses, meats, olive oils, and chocolates, and they will be able to buy the wines they taste at a 10 percent discount.

The two-night getaway (from $275 per night per person in a room or $465 in a suite) includes access to the hotel’s gym and indoor infinity pool and discounts on spa treatments. A Sunday lunch buffet prepared by the hotel’s chef, Ricardo Costa, is available at an additional cost. Guests can also take advantage of visits to the nearby World Heritage Committee–protected Douro Valley vineyards. (+35.1.220.133.100, www.the-yeatman-hotel.com)
