Enjoy a fantastic Port Wine Cocktails Workshop at the iconic Espaço Porto Cruz at Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal. The Porto Cruz Space is a project to celebrate the culture of port wine by associating modernity to tradition. Facing Porto and the River Douro, this building occupies a privileged area of the Gaia riverfront. A meeting point for traders and fishermen since medieval times, it was here they crossed the river to sell the products from the Upper Douro. The origins of this building, restored in 1881, date back to the 18th century and the expansion of the Port wine trade.
