Full description
Depart Porto and travel south toward the Bairrada region, famous for its suckling pig, sweet pastries and increasingly the fantastic wine variety, Baga. The region produces sparkling wines of huge fineness and high creaminess, in addition to red wines of dark color and concentrated aroma.

Your first stop is in Aveiro, Here you will take a walk around the city famous for its canals and typical boats, but also for Art Nouveau and local pastries. Now taste the most typical sweet from Aveiro, the soft eggs. This is a real gift from the Nuns to the World

Move on to the heart of the Bairrada region, where we will find the Aliança Underground Museum. You will visit the underground tunnels where all the art is stored and taste three awarded sparkling wines.

Next, travel to the mecca of the suckling pig in Portugal, Mealhada. Here you will taste the typical Bairrada delicacy of roasted suckling pig in the most famous spot in the country, an opportunity not to be missed. To end the day you will visit the cellar owned by the man that personifies the Bairrada — Luis Pato. Here you will visit his winery and taste the delicious nectar for which he is known (a truly unmissable experience). You will then return to Porto to complete your tour.
