Love wine and music? Experience a fusion of these two passions at Caves Cálem, where you'll indulge in a delicious Porto wine and enjoy a traditional fado performance. An unforgettable evening!
Fado Show & Wine Tasting: what to expect?
Begin your evening of Portuguese culture with a guided tour of the interactive wine museum at the renowned Caves Cálem, a traditional Porto winery established in 1859. You'll learn all about Porto wine, from the different types of grapes grown in vineyards across Portugal to the production process.
As you visit the ageing rooms and cellars, you'll discover the traditions and history that surround wine in the coastal city, and with your new-found expert knowledge you'll be treated to a tasting of the winery's best products. See if you can identify the different tastes and aromas in each wine... cheers!
For the finishing touch on a wonderful evening, you'll enjoy a live performance of traditional Portuguese music: fado. The historic genre, which has been recognised as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO, is characterised by melancholy rhythms, string instruments like the Portuguese guitar, and lyrics about love, life and the sea.
As the emotion of the music fills the room, you'll be captivated by the magic of fado and the passion of the musicians and singers performing it.
