The Yeatman

The Yeatman is a luxury wine hotel and spa and offers the best of Portugal: from gastronomy and wine to the art of good hospitality. It is a member of the highly respected chain Relais & Châteaux, with 82 bedrooms and suites, a premium restaurant with one Michelin star led by Chef Ricardo Costa, the largest collection of Portuguese wines in the world, a Vinothérapie® Spa by Caudalie and 11 meetings and events rooms.

It is set within 7 acres of land and gardens in the historic Port wine lodge district with stunning panoramic views over Porto and the river Douro.

The Vinho Verde region presents a huge dynamism and creativity. This time we will present a group of young wine producers from this region who are part of a group called Vinho Verde Young Projects.

I needed a few days in a place where I could rest my ideas and recharge my batteries to their fullest, one of those times when I feel like being away from everything or as one of my family members would say, "who can discover us here." While searching for a place like that I came across with the wine tourism of Casa do Rio - Quinta do Vallado, which won the category of "Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices" in the Best of Wine Tourism Awards 2016 and more recently the Architecture and Landscape award at the Best of Wine Tourism Awards 2018. An offer so tempting, even more so, because it is connected to the world of wine, was the much-needed click.

When in 2001 we, Sandra Tavares da Silva and Jorge Serôdio Borges, started our journey to make our own wine we had neither vineyards… nor wine. All we had was a dream, a vision, a project in common that would embrace our life as a couple. Its easy to understand why we named our company ‘Wine&Soul’ a project that we put our heart and soul into, warm and personal wines that symbolize our life.

February 22, 2018 to February 25, 2018
