The tour meets in front of the main entrance to the Sandeman cellars, the most famous in Porto
Having learnt some unusual anecdotes about the history and evolution of the different kinds of wines in Porto, made with the grapes from the flowing rivers of the Duero, we'll head into the cellar itself. Inside we'll learn about the story behind this most famous of wine brands (who is the mysterious man with a cape and hat, the emblem and image of the company?), as well as the area where they keep the barrels filled with the product itself...
The visit to the Sandeman cellar ends with a tasting of two typical Porto wines. Aided by an expert Sandeman sommelier, you'll learn how to distinguish between the different textures, aromas and tastes of the wines of the region.
