Another day, another daydream about sleeping in a wine barrel. This time, it’s in Douro, Portugal, where guests of the Quinta da Pacheca Estate are invited to stay in giant wine barrels in the middle of a 116-year-old vineyard.
The vineyard sits on a 280-year-old estate owned by Paulo Pereira and Maria do Céu Gonçalves. On-site accommodations include 270-square-foot rooms that are giant replicas of wine barrels used in the estate, which includes 15 wine-making rooms, Metro reports.
The cavernous barrels include a private bathroom with a walk-in shower, a “large, round bed,” a skylight, and a terrace. They even have air conditioning and WiFi, Metro reports.
Amenities also include wine, of course, with bottles of red, white, rosé, and port available in a nearby house dating to the 18th century. Samples of locally made olive oil and jam are also available, and a restaurant offering local cuisine is on the property as well.
Although certainly a special experience, Quinta da Pacheca is not the first to offer giant wine barrel rooms to sleep in. As VinePair reported last week, a small winery in Sasbachwalden, Germany offers visitors the chance to sleep among the vines at Schlafen im Weinfass, with eight giant wine barrels on site. A VRBO listing in Washington State also offers a wine barrel room on site, and in Porto, Portugal, the Yeatman Hotel invites guests to stay in rooms with wine barrel-enclosed beds.
