  • We went here because of the name (which should tell you a great deal about the kind of reviewers you're dealing with, here). They have a nice outdoor area covered in vines where you can surreptitiously take your shoes off and feel especially posh while sipping your port tastings. The 20-year tawny is a lovely thing.
  • A beautiful Port cellar up on the hill. They had a wonderful tour of the cellar which was informative and provided an opportunity to get some great photos and taste a few port wines. The tour was included in the price of the hop-on-hop-off tour making it great value.
  • Paying 4 Euro each you can taste varius types of Wines and have access to cellar with a detailed guide (about 40 minutes). Really suggested! The Wines was really tasty.
  • Awesome tour ! The guide was attentive and well prepared. Not to mention about the wine which was excellent! Cannot compare with the awful tour at Cross. Cockburn's rules ! After 10 years will look to buy a Cockburn 10 years old wine from 2016's crop !
  • Lovely style Port cellar. Enjoyed the visit.

Where to stay in Vila Nova de Gaia

Located just across the river from Porto's Old Town, Vila Nova de Gaia boasts a distinctive identity of its own.You can take advantage of the area's trendy riverfront district and its world-famous Port wine cellars by staying in one of the neighborhoods just south of the bridges to Old Town Porto. This puts you within easy walking distance of the wine cellars, while leaving you in close proximity to historical sites across the river by foot, bus, or taxi. Farther from the river are several international chain hotels offering comfortable rooms with high standards of cleanliness. You'll also find locally run inns and bed and breakfasts in the heart of the city's more residential neighborhoods of Cravelos and Mafamude.
