Drink Yourself To Sleep – Inside A Wine Barrel! “What The Friday” Has A Wine Barrel Hotel!

Drink Yourself To Sleep Indeed!

It’s a wine-filled “What The Friday”, thanks to a wine barrel you can sleep in!

This is just another reason why I love the internet, because it shares places like this – an incredible Portugese Winery that lets you sleep inside a wine barrel!

Yes, this incredible winery in Portugal not only has a hotel and restaurant, they have real, supersized wine barrels to sleep in as well!

Quinta da Pacheca is a beautiful 280-year-old wine estate which has created 30 “Wine barrel” suites which include a circular double bed, private wardrobe and bathroom with walk-in shower.

Each wine barrel room has skylight windows and a private terrace , along with air conditioning and Wi-Fi as well!

These incredible photos of Quinta da Pacheca are credited to their website, which you can see here:


Quinta da Pacheca is based in Douro, Portugal – ‘one of the most famous wine regions in the world’ and you can stay here for roughly $200-$250 per night, breakfast included.

The winery promises “an idyllic and romantic setting” with the wine barrels “providing a unique experience of contact with nature and the monumental reality of the Douro Wine Region”.

They add: “Unique moments of rest await for you in an environment of rurality.”

Sounds good to me – cheers!

I saw this incredible “Wine Barrel Hotel” posted online, and located the entire article here – more info and pictures, so click on it:


As unique as this gorgeous Portugese winery is, remember that I showed you how we do things in the US:

That’s right, Idaho not only grows them, they make them for sleeping in as well…check out this unique “Spud Hotel” by clicking here:
