About the Destination

The beautiful island of Pico, protected with World Heritage status, is not only home to Portugal's highest mountain, Pico Mountain, but is home also to a unique growing wine area giving the island a truly unique landscape. The island's rocky surface, stone-walled vineyards and imposing mountain are truly a remarkable sight.

Pico has a long wine producing tradition and history going back to the 15th century. Despite volcanic eruptions and lava landslides, the local vintners have adapted to- and thrived- in the basalt landscape. The stone-walled vineyards, currais, have protected the 2,439 acres of vineyard from fierce Atlantic winds and salty ocean water for hundreds of years. The currais give an astounding effect to the island's landscape with the magnificent Pico Mountain in the backdrop, and can be visited today in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Criação Velha.

The wines, which are made from a grape unique to the island- Arinto dos Açores, are quite flavorful and definitely worth the taste. They are so exquisite that back in the 17th century they were already being exported to the Russian Czars and to Europe. Recently the island has seen an explosion of new vineyard openings with the Azores Wine Company at the forefront. Taste the exquisite local wines, visit Pico's Museo do Vinho, and if you are feeling adventurous, climb Portugal's highest mountain.

With this amazing travel package we invite you to have a truly unique winning experience. See what makes this unique wine culture one worth tasting-until the very last drop- with an immersive Azores Getaways package dedicated to the wines of Pico.
