Winery / Vineyard
Wine lovers and cultural connoisseurs will appreciate the renovated museum and historical cellars at Graham's Port Lodge. Discover the art of port wine-making through a cinematic exhibition on the Douro vineyards, which was added to the site in 2012. Consider a walk through the museum housing artifacts from the company, the land, and its history. You can tour the wine cellars at the lodge, which were established in 1890 and hold 3,200 barrels, as well as a vintage collection of 19th-century bottles. Finally, you may sample the port wines for yourself at a public or private tasting. You also can take in views of Porto and dine at the Vinum Wine Bar and Restaurant.

  • Instead of settling for the easy life and visiting one of the port lodges on the waterfront, it's worth making the effort to get up the hill to the Graham's lodge. It is another world! Much more relax...  more »

  • Very charming and romantic terrace with a good view to the city center. Excellent tapas and wine. Expect high prices. Still highly recommend. But be prepared to not very caring service as the place is so popular - we waited like 10 minutes and nobody noticed us. And if you catch somebody they say they will send a colleage to you but nobody comes. And you wait and wait and wait. But the ambience and view outweighs all this.
  • My wife and I visited Graham's and also Taylor's. We are port lovers and although we enjoyed both lodges, we preferred the Graham's tour and tasting. We tried the premium tasting of 3 Tawny ports and enjoyed the experience. Our guide was a young lady who knew her subject well and made the tour enjoyable. Saving up,for the 1955 vintage as I was born that year !
  • A hike up the hill, but a beautiful view at the top. Good tour, very informative. Amazing company that's been around for centuries. Port was tasty. Not much of a port drinker at all but they had a good variety and tastings specifically meant for beginners. Bring a friend and try two different sets to share!
  • Beautiful view of the city with outdoor seating and excellent port wine. Try the crusted port...my favorite by far!
  • Nice tour and tasting experience. Very good selection from the symilton family port produce to buy. Offering delivery abroad
