Full description
In a healthful balance between Port tradition and new technologies, you will discover Douro region and Port wine – from “terroir” to the wine grapes, from the categories up to the aromas, trough our recently interactive museum, with personalized and intuitive access. In the guided visits to Cálem caves you will learn about the Douro Demarcated Region, know how the Port is produced and stay abreast of all the details of the history of this House. The cellars themselves remain active and visitable. It is there that you will learn more about the unique characteristics of each type of Port, even next to the barrels where they grow old, protected from light and heat. Then, you will be invited to a Cálem wine tasting: a white Port and a Tawny Port. With one of your guides, you will have the possibility to learn some more Port secrets and taste our wines.

    Fantastic! I've been on several wine tours, but I've never had as much fun and high spirits as this one! The companion was super funny, but still very professional! I was excited! We experienced a tour in English. The lady spoke slowly and clearly so that everything was understood. It looked like there were no Portuguese tours offered, which I found a shame because I would have been even happier about it. If there is, then I take that comment back! I thoroughly enjoyed this hour! Thank you for this experience!!

    You learned a lot about the history and production as well as the different types of port wine. Unfortunately, you don't really have time to look at the interactive museum during the almost 1 hour tour. Unfortunately, there is not enough time for the interactive part in particular. Which is a real shame as the museum looks really good. However, it is still a good tour and definitely worth the money.

    This tour was excellent for $16…hour long tour of the museum with very knowledgeable tour guide that ended in a huge tasting room with 2 port tastings. I was interested in a third wine to purchase, so I was able to try that as well prior to buying. This is a VERY large winery and pretty regimented running people through the registration, ticketing, and tours, so if you’re looking for a “small winery feel” this tour isn’t for you. However, the information shared was very detailed and gives an outstanding view of how Port wine is made and distributed. I bought 6 bottles to be delivered to Germany and they arrived only a few days after I got home, so their shipping process is spot-on. Highly recommend if you want to know how port wine is made and you don’t mind the “cattle” mentality of 50 people on a tour following each other through dark hallways and into the tasting room.
