It's Always Wine O'Clock At This Resort Where You Can Sleep In A Wine Barrel

Wine is wonderful, isn't it? I mean, I can spend days luxuriating in nature with a robust red in hand, just reveling at the marvels of fermentation. In fact, sometimes I think I could bathe in wine.

But seeing as I'm not that wasteful, maybe I'll just book at stay at this working vineyard in Portugal where you can sleep in a giant wine barrel.

Sleep in rustic luxury.

Quinta da Pacheca

The Quinta da Pachecha vineyard in the Douro region of Portugal has created giant luxury wine barrels that serve as guest suites. They're located on the sprawling centuries-old wine estate, overlooking the vineyard and the Douro river valley.

They're equipped with all the amenities you could want.

The wine barrels were the brainchild of the resort's owners.

Designed by the estate's owners, Paulo Pereira and Maria do Céu Gonçalves, the barrels are exact replicas of the ones used to actually age the wine. They said they created them to add to the resort's already romantic and idyllic vibe.

The resort is also renowned for offering exceptional gastronomic experiences.
