Visit Portugal has launched a wine tourism website as part of the tourist board’s drive to boost awareness of the country’s wine sector.
Using the marketing slogan, ‘Portugal Pairs with Wine’, the online platform is part of the destination’s Wine Tourism Action Plan which aims to attract visitors to rural areas year-round.
The new website outlines the history of winemaking in Portugal and features tourism experiences, events, local tips and information about each region.
Featured activities include carriage rides, a bicycle tour in the Vinho Verde region, grape harvesting in Alentejo and a hiking trail in the Azores.
