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 two Port wines: Chip Dry – Extra Dry White and Late Bottled Vintage (LBV). Afterwards, relax on the terrace, which has magnificent views over the city of Oporto.
