Port Wine Museum
Port Wine Museum
The Port Wine Museum is located in an old shed, originally built to store the wine of the “Companhia Geral da Agricultura das Vinhas do Alto Douro”.
Like the “Casa do Infante” and the Romantic Museum, this museum is also part of the City Museum complex. Specifically, it is known as the “Extensão do Douro”.
The beautiful building is located in front of the river, in the area of Porto known as Miragaia, relatively close to the “Palacio de Cristal” gardens. Nonetheless, it is easier to arrive via the Ribeira.
What to see in the Port Wine Museum
The museum has been created to show the relationship of Port wine with the city of Porto and how it contributed to its development.
On display are old bottles, advertising images from past decades, photographs and lots of information about the history of Port wine.
This museum is focused on the background of Port wine. If, on the other hand, you are more interested in learning about how it is made, its different types and having a tasting, then we recommend a visit to one of Porto’s wineries in Vila Nova de Gaia, on the other side of the Ribeira.
The admission costs 2,50€.
Free with the Porto Card.
Rua de Monchique, 45-52, Porto
