When visiting the city of Porto, there is one thing you really have to try: a Port wine tasting in a Douro wine cellar! It is a unique and special activity, which cannot be done anywhere else in the world.
If you are a wine lover, book your visit, because you are sure to love it!
Each visit has a guide who will walk you through the facilities, explaining where the grapes are picked and the process of making their wines.
Cockburn's Ports are carefully aged in oak casks and vats and are monitored by the tasting and winemaking team until they reach their optimum maturity. The impressive scale of Cockburn's warehouse allows it to house a large quantity of ageing Special Reserve, so that it develops its unique style and perfect balance, acquired by longer ageing in wood than any other Reserve Port.
The recent major renovation of Cockburn's has allowed the opening of a museum, two tasting rooms and the opening of its cooperage to the public, in order to provide you with an even more enriching experience.
