No, you haven’t died and gone to wine heaven, but this vineyard in Portugal might be the second-best thing.
Welcome to Quinta da Pacheca estate in Doura, Portugal, where there are 10 oversized wine barrels full of luxurious amenities, like an elegant bathroom that is basically a spa, a comfy bed, and a skylight so you can gaze at the stars that look over the beautiful vineyard, reports Metro.
Oh, and each barrel is fitted with air conditioning and Wi-Fi.
The barrels are made out of pinewood and are replicas of the classic wine barrels that are used to make wine at this 280-year-old estate.
The barrels are placed throughout the vineyard, so you have ample opportunity to explore the grape trees and get a real feel for the Portuguese countryside.
“In an idyllic and romantic setting, these wine barrel rooms will provide visitors a unique experience of the nature and significance of the Douro wine region,” a representative from the vineyard said.
A stay inside a giant wine barrel wouldn’t be complete without wine tastings that include homemade jams, olive oils and a romantic dinner at the restaurant at the vineyard where you can taste and sample -- yep, you guessed it -- more wine.
We told you this was the next best thing to wine heaven!
A single night stay in the wine barrel will cost you 219 euros, which comes out to roughly $286 USD, which isn’t so bad for such a unique experience. And if the wine barrel isn’t for you, there is also a hotel on site.
