Porto's wines are some of the finest and most famous in all Portugal. Learn to distinguish between them with a tasting in the Real Companhia Velha and Sandeman Cellars.
Porto Wine Tour
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.
Then, having visited the Sandeman bodega the tour ends in the Real Companhia Velha shop where, accompanied by our guide, we'll try several different regional cured cheeses.
In order to best organise the tour, it's possible that the order of the visits may at times be reversed. Should this be the case, the tour will visit the Real Companhia Velha shop first, then the Sandeman Cellar.
