Duplicating the services more or less like in their wine barrel rooms, Quinta da Pancheca also offers The Wine House Hotel for a great wine trip and experience with a breathtaking view of the Duoro Valley. Located in Douro, Portugal, D. José Freire de Serpa Pimentel bought the property in 1903 and began to work on the modernization of the vineyard. The structures include eight granite stone tanks where red wines from Pacheca are still vinified.
The doors for guided tours to the property and sale of its wines in Quinta’s store officially began in 1955. Focused in the production of quality Douro DOC and Port wines, Quinta da Pacheca started commercialization of DOC wines with the brands of Quinta da Pacheca and Quinta de Vale Abraão in 1977. The Wine House Hotel Quinta da Pacheca in 2009 further expanded the exploration of business in tourism and soon it came to be recognized as an ultimate vacation destination.
