Wine lovers and cultural connoisseurs will appreciate the renovated museum and historical cellars at Graham's Port Lodge.

  • The cellars of Graham's deserve so not only you can book to be on having a place and you need to climb a bit to access. Away from the commercial wineries, here we're at taste good professionals, serious people. We took the tour with 3 tastings and have taken two different in order to have a wider range. There are tastings from two glasses and a lot more if affinities... After the visit of the cellars or explanations will be given and or I think you learn a lot about the production of this beverage, as was our case, enjoy so noble and good drinks. Finally you can buy and do you ship worldwide these wines of Porto who don't have strictly nothing to do with the bad that you buy by ignorance. An unforgettable moment that ended with a great view from the terrace on PORTO and the bridge Luis. PS The wines are so good that we have re purchase by mail

  • The ride is basically a visit to Basement. All part of the story and production is shown via video and image. The desgutação at the end is quite interesting where you can understand the differences between some variants of port wine.

  • No need to climb up the hill to visit this place, take the public bus, easy access. Check their website for the visits which are in different languages. It's a very clean and nice looking cellar where...  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
