Port Lodge Wine Tour

Delight in the Complex Flavors of World-renowned Port Wines


Overview of Port Lodge Wine Tour

The port wine lodges of Vila Nova de Gaia, across the river from the atmospheric Portuguese city of Porto, are a once-in-a-lifetime “must-do” for wine lovers visiting Northern Portugal. Vila Nova is the Mecca for Port wine fans. Most famous Port Houses have lodges here, including Taylor’s, Graham’s, Ramos Pinto, Rozès, Warres, Ferreira, Croft, Offley, and Sandeman.

On this VIP port wine excursion, you will visit two of the best Port lodges, enjoying exclusive access and a special lunch at one of Porto’s most excellent restaurants, Vinum, which stands as a culinary hallmark in Porto, offering an exceptional dining experience that centers on premium ingredients and the finest traditional flavors of Northern Portugal.

Today, you will learn all about the fascinating history of port wine production and its impact on everything from politics to wine trends to wine marketing.

Port wines are not made at the historic wine lodges; they are produced in the beautiful Douro Valley, about a two-hour drive, or sail from Porto up the Douro River. The grapes are harvested, vinified, and fortified in the Douro wine estates (called “Quintas”) and then sent down to the lodges to be aged and stored before shipping to their markets worldwide.

Most of the Port lodges date back to the 1700s and 1800s, and they are supremely charming, with old cellars and great views over the river. Explore the charm of the lodges, where you’ll encounter vintage casks, their weathered wood telling a story of tradition and time, each a testament to the age-old craft of winemaking.

You will enjoy private tours, get special treatment at each lodge, and taste wines not offered on regular visits, such as top vintages. Immerse yourself in the intoxicating aromas of the cellars, where the subtle scents of oak and wine blend with the cool, earthy air, all punctuated by the soft echoes of clinking glasses as fellow connoisseurs toast to an unforgettable experience.

You will savor the crisp, fruity notes of White Port, the rich, full-bodied flavor of Ruby, the complexity of LBV, the nutty, caramel essence of Tawny, and the rare, elegant taste of Vintage Port.

If you are a couple or a small group of friends looking to explore this wonder heritage and discover the gastro delights of this wonder city and region, then contact us today and start planning your bespoke Port Lodge wine adventure.
