Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy a commented tasting experience of three Port Wines 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.
Porto Cruz Wine TastingPorto Cruz is one of many tastings we have available in Espaço Porto Cruz. In this tasting you have the opportunity to taste a Porto Cruz White, Porto Cruz Tawny Special Reserve, Porto Cruz LBV 2001. Our sommelier will guide you to the history of Douro Valley, the colours, flavours and aromas of our Ports. We also explain the process of the White, Pink, Tawny and Ruby, the four families of Port Wine. Later we would like to invite you to explore our building...it´s free! So come with us and do the virtual experience, go to the terrace, see our exhibitions and have fun.
