Caves do Vinho do Porto

Wine Cellar Check location

Port wine is produced in the Douro valley and brought to its cellars in the city of Vila Nova de Gaia. The history of this wine has been remembered since the 17th century when it began to be produced and exported by British families, arising from this process the Methuen Treaty, the Douro Demarcated Region and the creation of the Port as a major export point.

The barrels of wine that came from the Douro were stored in Vila Nova de Gaia, where the wine matured in different barrels and bottles and where the export trade was made.

Today a large part of these houses offers visits to its facilities, giving to know the varieties, the different wines, their reserves and allowing the tasting of the same ones. It is clearly a stopping point for anyone interested in wine tourism.
