Full description

After booking your trip and hotel to visit the city of Porto, you are probably thinking about the best activities to do in the city. Visiting a port wine cellar is a unique activity that you can't do anywhere else in the world!

Our visits are adapted to all people, from the normal consumer to the most experienced consumer. If you are a wine enthusiast, first of all, you are in the right city, and secondly, we have extraordinary sensory experiences for you.

Each visit has a guide that will accompany you throughout the facilities explaining where the grapes are harvested and the process of manufacturing your wines.

Cockburn’s wines are aged in well-seasoned  oak casks and vats, each individually watched and frequently tasted by a highly experienced team of winemakers and tasters, until they reach their peak of maturity. The impressive scale of the Cockburn’s lodge makes it possible to house the large maturing stocks of Special Reserve Port, which develops its distinctive style by being kept in cask for longer than most other Reserve Ports. The aim is to achieve the perfect balance for which Cockburn’s Special Reserve Port has become well known. 

The great renovation that Cockburn's did recently, allowed to inaugurate a museum, two test rooms and open to the public its cooperage. Renovations, these, which serve to provide you with the best experiences.

Excellent visit, very good wines
Personalized, friendly and professional service. Tatiana was our guide. She was very professional and showed us the cellars and explained aspects of Port wine, which for me were a real surprise and which enriched me culturally. At the end of the visit we tasted two types of port wine, both of which were only a few years old but excellent.

entspannender und interessanter Besuch
Beste Führung durch einen Weinkeller in Portugal. Die Reiseleiter sind sehr aufmerksam und erklären sehr gut die Geschichte der Herstellung und Lagerung von Portwein, wir haben bei diesem Besuch viel gelernt. Am Ende findet die Verkostung in einer sehr angenehmen Umgebung statt.

Better than expected
The presentation of the winery was very interesting and pleasant. The Gabriel guide was sensational in the explanations. We were very happy to get to know a little bit of the tradition and the wines produced there. Living Tours was also sensational during the purchase process, helped me make the payment and offered me a 5% discount with the code FIVE.
