TAP Wine Experience

TAP Wine Experience


The “TAP Wine Experience” is TAP’s bid to transform the Company into the largest Portuguese wine and winetasting platform in the world.

Our goal is simple: to offer everyone who travels with us a unique sensory experience! 

Wine Tour


A tour through the main portuguese wine regions, on board a TAP Air Portugal aircraft, on a discovery of portuguese wine. 

As well as inflight service, TAP intends to create the broadest possible communication channels for publicising Portuguese wines, which is the main reason behind its new Wine Tour. 

The TAP Wine Tour lasts 3 days and 2 nights and covers at least 5 winemaking regions. It takes place between the 14th and 16th of November, starting in Lisbon and finishing in Porto. 

The tour involves opinion makers, specialists in the field and journalists from a variety of countries, to familiarize them with our regions and producers, and offer a unique wine experience. 

Participants are flown to each winemaking region to sample the best of what each location has to offer.  By the end, we will undoubtedly have achieved our main aim in promoting Portuguese wines and offering a real taste of what Portugal does best.
