  • My partner and I loved this place. It’s quite a hike up the hill, so be ready! But it’s wonderful when you get there we tried the restaurant and the tastings, both were fantastic! The steak was gorgeo...  more »

  • If you want to meet a port wine cellar that is wonderful! We booked the tour in Portuguese, were very well received by the extremely nice, guide and helpful. We opted for the tasting of 3 tawnys which cost 20 euros, but have upper and lower tastings. We reserve to after visiting the Vinum restaurant, which also has a breathtaking view of the food is of excellent quality.

  • We arrived and were directed to the wine bar. Beautiful views on a sunny day. Looking forward to doing some Port tasting. We waited 20 minutes and no one bothered to greet us or offer a tasting menu. Two other groups came in after us and received menus while we were still waiting. We gave up and left in discuss, mention our complaint on the way out. The person was just rude to us. I guess when you get to big you forget the customer is the one who keeps you in business. Will never buy another bottle of port from them. Good news went down the hill to Churchill and had great service and lovely port.
  • Lovely place. The view alone is worth it. But the port tasting is lots of fun and getting to learn about the history of port making in Porto is very interesting.
  • While Porto has numerous options for port tastings and tours, Graham's sticks out as a good choice should you only have time for one. Tours include a guided visit to the lodge, a video and interactions with a guide. Each tour is purchased as part of a tasting that varies depending on your tastes and budget. The term "tasting" may be a bit of a misnomer since a nearly full glass or port is provided for each. Expect to drink 4-5 glasses of port during a visit here, which may leave you a bit inebriated afterward. The port lodge has been recently renovated and includes a museum, bar and restaurant with great views of Porto. Reservations are recommended and may be required depending on your language and time of year.
  • up on a hill. walkable. we drank port. THE construction noises. had a smell.
  • Had the tour booked as well as a tasting at the end. Your was great, the guide was quite passionate, which really helps make the tour that bit more special. The tasting itself was great. Thanks to our choice, we got to go to the “premium” tasting room. Lovely experience. Nothing like the 1972 single harvest tawny. We then spent some time outside, some cheese, more port and enjoying the view. Well worth a visit
