Taylor’s Port cellars in Vila Nova can be visited throughout the year. Taylor’s, accepted by most wine authorities to be the greatest of all port shippers invites you to a pleasant and informative tour of its famous lodges at Vila Nova de Gaia.
During the tour the visitor will be given the opportunity to learn about the fascinating history of Port wine, as well as that of the House of Taylor’s – now in its fourth century – making it one of the oldest Port companies.
Upon completing the tour, guests will taste three Port wines: Chip Dry – Extra Dry White, Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) and Tawny 10 year old in the elegant Library Room. Afterwards, relax on the terrace, which has magnificent views over the city of Oporto.
There is no fixed schedule. Tours will leave every 30-40 minutes (approximately).
In addition there is a range of superb Premium Port Tastings for our visitors to enjoy.
We also provide private tours structured so as to appeal to everyone from the absolute beginner through to budding wine enthusiast. Each tour is customized and charge is based on each event.
In order to offer the best experience for your tour group (larger than 10 people) or bus, please schedule visits in advance.
