    Admittedly, we are port lovers. So, it was a thrill to take our group of friends to Cockburn's for an in-depth port wine experience. Our guide, Gabriel, is passionate about the story behind Cockburn's...  more »

    The visit to the caves of the Cockburns was very interesting. We were with Felipe guide that made us a full tour on some details about the production of port wine: cockburns fine white, tawny and ruby. It is recommended that all kinds of people.

    We bought a mini tourist office tourist ticket that included the open top bus and 3 wineries of your choice in the list. We went to this that is a bit more to one side than the other on the banks of the river Duero. So glad that we chose so: oak barrels, driving in any language including Italian, all very well cared for and eventually port wine tastings with different flavorings or seasoning really very good. In the end we bought so many bottles and one of these was opened in the hotel to greet a beautiful city, but above all a great getaway.

  • 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.
