Port Wine Cellar Taylor’s

Vila Nova de Gaia
Description
"Taylor’s, accepted by most wine authorities to be the greatest of all port shippers invites you to an exciting and informative tour of its famous lodges at Vila Nova de Gaia.

Taylor’s, now in its fourth century, recently renovated its 300 year old Cellars to incorporate a modern and innovative museum circuit. The story of Port wine and Taylor’s is now told through an extensive audio-guided visit, available in five languages, (English, Portuguese, Spanish, French and German) which will take you on a vivid tour of the Lodge that includes an array of films, images, exhibits, photographs and paintings.

The visitor is given the opportunity to journey into the past and learn about the history of Port wine and its production today, the Douro Valley and the house of Taylor’s, its past, present and its wealth of exceptional Ports. Upon completing the tour, guests will be presented with two of Taylor’s iconic Port wines to taste: Chip Dry – Extra Dry White and Late Bottled Vintage (LBV), invented by Taylor’s. During this tasting, you will be able to relax in the beautiful surroundings of Taylor’s tasting room, or enjoy some fresh air in the pretty gardens or terrace with its magnificent views over the city of Porto.

In addition to the two wines included on the tour, there is a range of Port tastings for our visitors to enjoy including a choice of many different aged Tawny Ports, or one of Taylor’s classic Vintage Ports.

Price for the audio tour and tasting per person: €12. No reservation is required for the audio tour and you will be able to get started as soon as you arrive. The audio-guided tour lasts, on average, one hour, with a further 30 minutes required for the Port wine tasting at the end, in the tasting room.

Please note that there’s enough material on the tour for 2 hours if you wish, therefore if you think you would appreciate staying longer for the tour and tasting, then we would suggest that you arrive no later than 4.30 / 5pm.

If you are arranging for a tour group (larger than 10 people), then we would ask you to please schedule visits in advance in order to guarantee availability and the best experience.

Opening Hours: Monday to Sunday: 10h – 19h30 – last entry at 18H
