Over the past 10 years, Esporão has invested to restructure the vineyards, rebuild the wineries and regenerate the Estate’s House. According to João Roquette, “I believe this is the best way to show the Douro, Quinta dos Murças and the products we produce here; a unique opportunity to enjoy and experience an estate house in the Douro.”

The Quinta dos Murças House has 5 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 10 people. Aside from enjoying the comforts of the house, gardens and swimming pool, guests can also participate in the estate’s daily routines, whether in the fields, the winery or in the kitchen. The living room features a veranda overlooking the river and is the perfect place to relax, read or even play the piano. The dining room is a space to share experiences and conversation around the table, where traditional Douro cuisine is prepared by our housekeeper.

In order to provide an authentic experience of an estate house in the Douro, we offer a wide range of activities, such as wine tasting, picnics and hiking trails. The shop offers Quinta dos Murças wines and olive oil, as well as products developed in partnership with some of the region’s artisans and artists.
