The Wine House Hotel – Quinta da Pacheca

Porto | Portugal

On their first visit to Quinta da Pacheca, even before its acquisition, the current owners envisioned the possibility of sleeping in giant barrels as soon as they entered the estate’s aging Port wine cellar and became dazzled with the size of the existing vats. From this idea to the first sketches it only took a few months, in full tune with the architect Henrique Pinto came the first sketches of what would become the current Wine Barrel’s by Quinta da Pacheca.

Surrounded by the centuries-old vineyards, one of the tallest grounds of the estate is lined with 10 giant barrels, each featuring unique architectural and design elements, and interior decorative elements inspired by vintage references. An original circular glass door gives access to the outside deck from where you can admire the monumentality of the Douro Valley.
