We are impressed by Great Wine Capitals' initiative to connect wine lovers to these cities and internationally-renowned wine regions, that creates a wonderful collaboration between these very places with the common goal to promote and always improve wine tourism. We pride ourselves at the Quinta for being personable, informative and professional and wholeheartedly believe that this is essential to meet the expectations of those visiting our Quinta, the Douro and Portugal. Obrigada for this possibility to be a part of Great Wine Capitals!"

“Our involvement in wine tourism being quiet recent, it was particularly relevant for us to participate in the Best Of Wine Tourism Award contest organized by the Bordeaux Chamber Commerce and Industry and the Great Wine Capitals Global Network. Being awarded in the “Architecture and Landscape” category comforted us in our wine tourism decisions.
This award represent a great recognition for all the work done by the Dauphine team, a constant concern for quality, elegance, and experience that we try to provide each visitor. This award will prompt the company to improve its efforts to   become a main partner in the Wine tourism sector among offer famous properties.

“We feel much honoured to have won the Best Of Wine Tourism 2014 award in the category of Innovative Wine Tourism Experiences, and take it as the recognition for the intellectual strictness of contents and sensorial experiences around Port Wine, the Douro region and Portuguese food provided to those who visit the Espaço Porto Cruz.

It also means more responsibility. I consider that innovation and distinctiveness are essential for Port Wine and tourism’s sustainability, and find it fulfilling to see that these are duly rewarded.”
