About the Activity
In this experience we invite you to visit Cockburn’s Port cellars, located in Vila Nova de Gaia, which faces the twin city of Porto across the Douro River, and enjoy a vintage tasting at John Smithes room. Framed pictures of John Smithes in the Douro vineyards are displayed on the walls, alongside testimonials of his work which reflect the enormous contribution he made to the knowledge of Douro grape varieties.

During the guided visit, lasting approximately 45 minutes, you will know the sections of the various buildings which make up the cellars, such as the museum, the patio, the wine ageing cellars, the cooperage, the vintage port cellar and the John Smithes room, where you will enjoy a tasting.

Before leaving the premises, visitors have the opportunity of purchasing Ports from the Cockburn’s range and from its sister Port companies owned by the Symington family. The family’s DOC Douro red and white wines are also available for purchase alongside wine books, accessories, Port-infused chocolate, and special gift packs.

Visit us at Vila Nova de Gaia, enjoy a sip and get to know more about our Port wine!

Highlights:
  • Guided visit to the Cockburn’s Port cellars, located in Vila Nova de Gaia;
  • Vintage vertical tasting of 3 Cockburn’s Port wines at John Smithes room.

    “Tour and tasting” Get away from the very busy river front and climb the hill to Cockburn, it's worth it. Good informative tour of the cellars with explanation on the whole process of producing Port wine. It's a great escape from the tourist madness. Nick, 04 mai 2020
