It was a round thing. First a guided tour through the interactive museum, where the guide gives a brief and concise insight into the production and history and an overview of the different types of port wine. Then you are led into a large hall where you can then taste 2 port wines. Meanwhile you can watch the fado show ☺️. For someone who is not necessarily a wine connoisseur and just wants to try port wine with the background music of traditional Portuguese music, it's great.

If you appreciate wine and fado, this is the evening for you!! Beautifully done! A lesson on Porto wine making and a relaxing time to sip and enjoy some of the classic fados.,

Very witty, knowledgeable tour guide and excellent Fado performance with some great tasting ports.

Interesting story about the port wine but the real stars were the fado performances

Visit, tasting and show Well organized / well supervised and of good quality.
