Taylor’s, accepted by most wine authorities to be the greatest of all port shippers invites you to a pleasant and informative tour of its famous lodges at Vila Nova de Gaia.

During the tour the visitor will be given the opportunity to learn about the fascinating history of Port wine, as well as that of the House of Taylor’s – now in its fourth century – making it one of the oldest Port companies.

Upon completing the tour, guests will taste two Port wines: Chip Dry – Extra Dry White and Late Bottled Vintage (LBV).  Afterwards, relax on the terrace, which has magnificent views over the city of Oporto. 

Price per person: €12

No reservation is necessary.

In addition there is a range of superb Premium Port Tastings for our visitors to enjoy.

We also provide private tours structured so as to appeal to everyone from the absolute beginner through to budding wine enthusiast. Each tour is customized and charge is based on each event. Should you be interested in a private tour please contact

In order to offer the best experience for your tour group (larger than 10 people) or bus, please schedule visits in advance.

For those interested we also recommend:

  • Opening of Tayor’s Vintage Ports with tongs;
  • Tasting of olive oil from the Douro valley - Quinta de Vargellas extra virgin;
  • A visit to our wine shop where you can find the whole range of Taylor’s Ports including charming gift boxes or rare Vintages. Expeditions (in small quantities) are also possible. Just ask for more details at the wine shop;
  • Tasting by-the-glass of old tawnies;
  • Restaurant "Barão de Fladgate” -



Opening Hours: Monday to Sunday: 10h – 19h30 – last entry at 18H

The audioguided tour lasts, on average, one hour, with approximately a further 30 minutes required for the Port wine tasting at the end, in the tasting room.

There is enough material on the tour for 2 hours if you wish, therefore if you would like to stay longer and enjoy more time in the tasting room, then we would suggest that you arrive no later than 5pm.
