Full description
Burmester has long been recognized for its Port wines and Douro DOC (Denominação de Origem Controlada). Its history started long ago in London in 1730, when Henry Burmester joined with John Nash to create Burmester, Nash & Co and from Vila Nova de Gaia they started exporting Port wines all around Europe. Over the years, Burmester has triumphed from generation to generation, demonstrating its inherent character and determination. Character is the holistic principle of the brand, and of its wines. Arrive at the Burmester winery for an unforgettable experience. You will visit the Burmester Cellars, located next to the beautiful Luiz I bridge, with an expert guide. Learn about Port wines and the Douro DOC production process, and taste different port wines.

    13 € for a really informative hour and 2 ports is pretty nice and we had a lot of fun.

    This experience was catastrophic: the visit of the cellar (which is not actually a cellar!) Lasts 10 minutes flat with Ana as a guide, supposed to speak French but it was incomprehensible! the tasting then was quickly dispatched with very small quantities! And I'm not talking about the smiles of the staff in general: optional too! TO AVOID !
