Highlights
  • Visit the most popular wine cellars

  • Visit the interactive museum to learn more about the Douro region
  • Enjoy a journey through time, aromas, colors and flavors

Full description
In a healthful balance between Port tradition and new technologies, you will discover Douro region and Port wine – from “terroir” to the wine grapes, from the categories up to the aromas, trough our recently interactive museum, with personalized and intuitive access.

In the guided visits to Cálem caves you will learn about the Douro Demarcated Region, know how the Port is produced and stay abreast of all the details of the history of this House. The cellars themselves remain active and visitable. It is there that you will learn more about the unique characteristics of each type of Port, even next to the barrels where they grow old, protected from light and heat.

Then, you will be invited to a Cálem wine tasting: a white Port and a Tawny Port. With one of your guides, you will have the possibility to learn some more Port secrets and taste our wines.
Includes
  • Interactive museum - 15 minutes approximately
  • 30-minute guided tour of the historic wineries in 4 different languages. You can choose from English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese
  • Two tasting options: Cálem Fine White and Cálem Special Reserve Tawny

We were there about 20 minutes before the actual tour and had plenty of time to inform us in the "museo" extensively about the winery. Very interesting. The disturbing thing about the tour was that the next group followed too fast and therefore at the beginning of the tour the two groups were too close to each other and we also heard the French version besides English. But then luckily changed. All in all a very good and informative tour, not least because of the guide.

Very high tech with colorful projectors. I thought it would be bigger, older. So from a few barrels of wood, there is nothing else. The guide explains in detail the history and the production therefore for the passionate ones. Explanation a bit long and with the accent, it's a little hard to understand. Tasting of 2 porto at the end, very good.

J'avais lu sur un guide que si il restait des places et que vous n'y connaissais rien en vin de Porto, c'était ces caves là à faire en priorités. Et je n'ai pas été déçue. Notre visite s'est faite en Français dans la durée précisée avec des informations sans que ce ne soit trop. Je regrette juste que la dégustation à la fin soit deux verres de vin de Porto. J'aurais aimé plus de vins et/ou mieux en moins grande quantité car deux verres de vin de Porto bien remplis, ça fait beaucoup pour une personne.
