The Port Wine, whose origins go back to the second half of the XVII century, is part of the essence of the cities of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, for having contributed for more than three centuries in defining the economic, social and cultural character of these cities.
From the High Douro Vineyard, classified in 2001 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, traveling along the Douro river, to the cellars located in Vila Nova de Gaia, there are ancestral traditions, viticulture techniques, and stunning landscapes! Visiting the Port Wine cellars is to stroll through centuries of history.
‘Cockburn’s Lodge is the largest wooden Port cellar in the historic area of Vila Nova de Gaia. Holding one of the greatest collections of oak barrels and wooden vats of any Port cellar, this is where we age all our Ports and is the home of Cockburn’s Special Reserve.’
