Port wine: Let’s drink

Porto’s port wine lodges opened their doors to visitors in the 1960s and have since become the city’s most sought-after attraction.
There are over 50 of them (and not all open to visitors)! To be honest most of them stand on the Vila Nova de Gaia Gaia hillside and not in Porto! It’s in Gaia that you will find with their world-famous names in giant neon signs (names such as Sandeman, Graham, Taylor’s, and Cockburn will especially be familiar to the British).

They offer free guided tours and wine tastings, explaining the winemaking and storage process, as well as the origin and characteristics of the wine.
