"Do a port wine tour." Oporto Wine Tip by cachaseiro

Oporto Wine, Porto: 37 reviews and 45 photos

  Port wine cellars.
by cachaseiro

Taking a port wine tour is a must when in Porto.
Porto has more than 50 port wine factories and more than 30 of them give tours around their premises.
Some of them are free and some of them cost a couple of euros and they always include a tasting of 2-3 different types of port wine.
Generally speaking it´s better not to visit the companies right on the river bank as they are often a little less generous with the wine.
Taylors who are located up a steep hill do a good tour for instance.

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