Sandeman Cellars

Delight in the rich flavors of Portugal’s finest Porto wines, marvel at views over Porto and explore historic cellars at this charming 225-year-old port lodge.

Taste exquisite Porto wine at Portugal’s Sandeman Cellars on the beautiful Douro River. Enjoy an enlightening tour of historic pinewood cellars and gaze over the UNESCO site of Porto from this expansive winery.

Porto is a Portuguese distilled wine made exclusively in the scenic Douro Valley of northern Portugal. Learn about the aging process of Porto’s wines in these historic surroundings, by choosing from three enjoyable tours of the Sandeman Cellars, established in 1790.

On the Classic Tour, follow winding corridors through the cellars and pick up local knowledge about Porto’s history and its wines. Savor the pleasant aromas drifting from the wooden vats that line the cellars’ walls. As the visit ends in a spacious tasting room, sample rich ruby and tawny Portos in a traditional atmosphere amid dark oak barrels.

For a longer visit, acquire more detailed Porto wine knowledge on the 1790s tour. Indulge in an intensive wine-tasting session and experience the sweet, full-bodied flavors of five unique ports. Alternatively, book the luxurious Old Tawnies Tour to try 10-, 20-, 30- and 40-year-old Portos as a spectrum of precious wines are laid out before you.

Tours are available in several languages with friendly, animated and knowledgeable guides. Enjoy their captivating “Don” costumes of black capes and wide-brimmed hats reminiscent of Spanish caballeros. During wine tastings, the seasoned team of winemakers can answer any questions.

After your tour, visit the on-site museum for an interesting history of the brand, as you amble through an exhibit of photography, paintings, ceramics, antique bottles and other memorabilia collected through the centuries. Afterward, relax outside the cellars with tapas and wine pairings and admire views over the colorful city of Porto.

From Porto’s Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport, take a 20-minute taxi ride directly to Sandeman Cellars. If you are staying in Porto or Vila Nova de Gaia, walk a scenic 30-minute route from the city center.

Whether or not you are a wine connoisseur, enjoy the visit to Sandeman Cellars and explore this heritage landmark with its impressive views over Porto and many gallons of tasty Porto wine.
