Wine harvest in 2022 © Oh! My Cod Tours & Trips

Explore Pico Island’s celebrated vineyards with a seasonal wine harvest experience that lets you live a day in the life of a local winemaker. This unique behind-the-scenes adventure includes participating in the grape harvest alongside a local producer, followed by a communal lunch where you’ll enjoy wine tastings and authentic regional dishes from the Azores.

Our journey takes us to one of our trusted partners, small yet influential independent producers who are shaping the contemporary identity of Pico’s wines. These producers, often from families with deep roots and centuries-old vines, share insights and secrets of their craft, making you feel part of their wine-making family.

After your engaging harvest session, relax and relish a specially prepared lunch at a picturesque location. Our community of winemakers and culinary experts often attracts friends from the broader food and wine world, enhancing the communal atmosphere where new bottles are opened, stories are shared, and lifelong friendships begin.

Note: This is a seasonal experience, available exclusively during the wine harvest season in summer. Join us during this special time to fully immerse yourself in Pico Island’s thriving winemaking culture.

A definite must in Pico

Silvia gave us a thorough history of how grapes came to be on the island. We were taken on a walk through the wine fields but mind you these wine fields are not like ours in the States, these grapes are grown in lava beds. No soil! And boy, oh boy the wine produced from these grapes is fanatastic!!! Silvia then took us to a protected swimming area to either swim or not and eat small bites at the local restaurant right there. Crabs, limpets and favas beans with bread. Lastly we were driven to a winery to sample wines produced by a women, very passionate about her wines. And fabulous wines they are!!! If you only have a few hours on Pico, as we did, I would highly recommend this tour. The ferry ride from Faial was a breeze.

Increíble experiencia!

Un paseo precioso! El lugar es increíble, con una naturaleza exuberante. Difícil elegir la mejor parte: las caminatas, las pruebas de vinos, el contacto con la cultura local, las piscinas... Silvia, muchas gracias por la experiencia fantástica! Volvimos todos encantados :)

A day well spent in BEAUTIFUL and UNIQUE Pico Island

As a solo female traveler, I have to say that, I absolutely loved (LOVED ;-) this experience. It is not only a great way to dive into the Azorean Culture through tastings of the VERY UNIQUE Pico wine, sampling of a good bit of tasty local snacks, breathtaking walks through the vineyards, swimming in tide pools within the amazing volcanic landscape, but also an absolute perfect way to meet and mingle with other fellow visitors and local hosts. I wish I could stay longer in order to take full advantage of all the tasteful and careful recommendations that Silvia provided while leisurely taking us all into this beautiful journey into Pico island life style. Thank YOU so much for such a blissful day, Silvia ... I hope to come back and do this all over again with a special someone ... who knows! Hugs to all of you who took such great care of us during our tour.

The best wine tour ever

A day well spent that made all the difference on our trip to Pico! We got to know places, wines and tasted local 'tapas' that without Silvia and Adriana would not have been possible or would have been extremely difficult! They took us swimming at an incredible place and even lent us a snorkelling mask. Because the weather allowed, we had a delicious volcanic wine tasting from a local wine producer among the black rocks and kiwis and with snacks accompanied by local people! A trip not to be missed with people who in a few hours become friends and that we carry in our hearts! Thank you so much!
