Step into the Douro

Churchill’s is delighted to offer Spectator subscribers the chance to win a two-night stay for two at 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 a unique insight into life on a working Douro winery. Experience the gentle pace of life among 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 breathtaking valley and Douro River from the terraces.

This special offer includes a two-night stay with breakfast for two guests at Gricha Vineyard House and a private wine tasting of Churchill’s Port and Douro wines, as well as a Jeep tour of the vineyard.

Churchill’s is the last independent British port shipper and one of the world’s foremost boutique producers of premium port and Douro wines. Master port blender Johnny Graham started the company in 1981 and still makes the wine 40 years later. The desire to use traditional methods and top-quality grapes to make excellent port and wine is at the heart of everything Churchill’s does. Quinta da Gricha is Churchill’s 50-hectare Grade-A vineyard located in the Cima Corgo sub-region of the Douro valley, that dates back beyond 1852. Churchill’s is committed to minimal intervention viticulture, ensuring it they can continue to make excellent wines in this region for centuries to come.
