Port Lodge

TASTING PORT WINE IN GAIA

In a class of its own, Port is a unique fortified wine style hailing from the spectacular terraced vineyards of Portugal's Douro Valley. It has inspired imitations from many of the world's wine regions, but much as with Champagne, none of the competitors can match a top vintage Port from a good producer. Port is a unique wine style that derives its flavour, strength and sweetness from the process of adding spirit to still-sweet part-fermented grape must.

Across the river from Porto is the historical city of Vila Nova de Gaia which has gained notoriety from the Port trade. It is within the 18th century streets of Gaia where Port companies have their lodges, the warehouses where the wine is aged and blended. The vast majority of the lodges are open to the public for tours and tasting. Typically they operate without prior booking between May and October yet some are closed on weekends. The duration and quality of tour varies with each company however all are informative and are good value for money. Usually the entrance fee is deducted from the cost of any purchase you make. Have a look at our detailed guide to Gaia's port lodges…
