Step into the Douro this spring and summer and book a visit to Gricha Vineyard House, the exclusive four-bedroom retreat on Churchill’s legendary 50-hectare vineyard at Quinta da Gricha in the Douro Valley, Portugal.
A visit to Gricha Vineyard House offers guests a unique insight into life on a working Douro winery. Experience the gentle pace of life amongst the vines and learn about viticulture and winemaking in the world’s oldest demarcated region on a personalised tour and wine tasting. Enjoy Churchill’s award-winning wines while relaxing by the infinity pool or gazing out at the breath-taking valley and Douro River from the panoramic vined-terraces.
Quinta da Gricha is beautiful any time of year, but it is during the vintage that our estate really comes alive, showing the best of what the Douro has to offer in ancient winemaking traditions and culture. This year, we are delighted to be able to offer visitors a special Harvest Experience. If you are in the Douro, please come and see us for a memorable day trip.
We are also thrilled to welcome Sean Marsh back to Quinta da Gricha, who will be overseeing our hospitality and gastronomy offer over the next two months. Having worked and trained in some exceptional kitchens, including St. John in London and Mugaritz in San Sebastian, Sean first came to Quinta da Gricha by way of Bar Douro to set up our food offer in 2019.
Sean will once again be inspiring the team at Gricha, creating traditional dishes that present local and seasonal products in a creative way that respects the work of local producers.
