The House of Cálem was founded in 1859 by António Alves and is still today one of the main Port wine brands in the world. It has been a family business for four generations and has won numerous awards and prizes.
Since its creation, Cálem focused on exporting its wines to Brazil. Even today, the company's brand symbol is a Caravel, representing the transatlantic crossings.
Cálem Cellars was renovated in 2006 and is an interesting option in which you’ll visit its museum, winery and finally be given two Port wines for you to taste.
Cálem is located in Gaia, very near the other Port Wine Cellars, next to the Dom Luís I Bridge.
