Dining options at Six Senses Douro Valley are a celebration of the region with much of the produce coming from the verdant valley and surrounding countryside, or on the resort’s gardens, assuring ultimate freshness and flavor. As the heart of the resort, the Wine Library & Terrace is a meeting place for guests with an interactive and instructional Wine Library where guests are guided in the varieties and styles by leading winemakers from the surrounding valley by the resort’s sommelier.
