The dual city of Oporto and Vila Nova de Gaia are gateways to the famed vineyards of the Douro in Portugal. Understand the hospitality of the Portuguese people and how the origin of Port began. Why are the Port houses mainly English, Symington, Taylor Fladgate or Crofts? Coincidence or design? We will examine 40-year-old tawny ports to the vintage ports made by the regimented stomping process of the lagares. Join us for a moment in history as we cast you back to the shores where Touriga Nacional and Tinta Cao grow superbly.
