The stunning beauty of the Minho region, where the green landscape contrasts with the gray granite, serves as background to the route of Vinho Verde (Green Wine, literally). It is from this region that comes this wine so unique, light and frothy, well adapted to regional cuisine. Although there are red qualities, white is the one that most captivates its enthusiasts. This Route also enables to go deep into the history of Portugal, with its four thematic tracks. The first, called "Route of Cities and Towns", invites the visitor to stroll by the main towns in the area: Amarante, Braga, Guimarães, Ponte de Lima, Monção, Melgaço and Viana do Castelo are a must in this path through Portuguese heritage. The second itinerary leads to the discovery of the landscapes of mountains such as Serras d `Arga, da Aboboreira, Freita, de Montemuro, Alvão and the Peneda-Geres Park. The "Route of Mountain ranges (das Serras)", goes through the most typical villages, wrapped in a unique and unspoiled nature. The "Route of Farms" is the one that reveals the origins of the local wine. After visiting Quinta da Aveleda, Quinta de Lourosa, Quinta da Lix, the Solar Bouças, Quinta de Simaens and Solar de Serrade, the visitor will learn the tradition and unique techniques behind the production of wine. The topic for the last itinerary is devoted to the magnificent monasteries of the region, a lesson in history, from the Monastery of St. Martinho de Tibães in Braga, to the Santa Maria de Refóios in Ponte de Lima. Besides these four itineraries, Green Wine Route suggests eight other regional routes (Ave, Tamega, Sousa, Cávado Nascente, Cávado Poente, Lima, Minho and Basto), offering the possibility to have a tailor-made itinerary.
