Sogrape is reopening its Wine Tourism venues
Starting from June, Sandeman Cellars and Quinta do Seixo are reopening their wine tourism venues with "Clean & Safe" certification, by meeting every condition and measure required by the National Health Authorities and Turismo de Portugal. Together with the Internal Committee for Safety and Crisis, Sogrape has created its Internal Wine Tourism Protocol - a set of guidelines to implement during reopening to protect the safety and health of everyone involved.
The number of visitors in both venues that are now reopening is limited to 10 per group/visit in order to insure that social distancing is maintained during the entire circuit, which both venues facilitate due to their wide dimensions. At Quinta do Seixo, visiting circuits will also be adapted to promote exterior spaces and contact with nature. The use of mask is mandatory for everyone. If necessary, there are free masks available for visitors.
As for wine tastings and pairings, those are restricted according to the new safety standards. With the aCarta app, visitors can check information about tastings and prices in digital format, through a QRCode scan.
The reopening of Sandeman Cellars and Quinta do Seixo is also bringing new features for the summer months, with activities for the whole family and those interested in exploring the universe of Port Wine: free entrance on Sunday mornings, special programmes for families and educational programmes.
The Sandeman Cellars are reopening on June the 1st, at 2 p.m., and will be open every day between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. during that month. Quinta do Seixo is reopening on June the 5th and, during that month, will only be open on Fridays, weekends and holidays between 10.30 a.m. and 7 p.m. We recommend those who wish to visit both venues to schedule ahead. Book your visit the Sandeman Cellars here and to Quinta do Seixo Winery here.
The Ferreira Cellars will also open its doors soon, upon finishing the refurbishment project for this venue, which is still under way in order to improve the visitors' experience.
