The city of Porto (Oporto) is the World Capital for Port Wine.
Therefore, any visitor should not miss the opportunity to enjoy a glass of a fine Port.

Suggestion: visit the Port Wine Lodges located in Vila Nova de Gaia, right in the south bank of the Douro river. Vila Nova de Gaia is walking distance from downtown Porto (Oporto). To get there from Porto, any visitor just need to cross the Dom Luiz I bridge.

Pictured on this tip, the American journalist Roy Hersh of For The Love Of Port is happily holding a "baby", a VERY BIG Taylor Fladgate LBV bottle of Port Wine.

Address: Many Wineries
Directions: Mainly on the on the Gaia hillside.
Phone: Ask at your hotel
