What people are saying about WOW Porto

Overall rating

4.4
(57 reviews)

You could spend hours here. There is so much to learn about how wine is made and I think people more interested in the production, rather than the drinking of wine, would find it a great activity. My partner and I spent approximately 2.5 hours looking around, and tasting wine at the end. Would recommend, it is lovely to learn about traditional port making!

The exhibition is very interesting and informative with important details about wine production, the elements of Earth, different soils from different countries, the processes , the artworks of various tastes , smells and learning about wine from Portugal. It’s well done and if you like wine and you want to learn more then absolutely do this tour.

We did chocolate, wine, and cork they were all awesome! I would definitely recommend this and the views are an added plus!

So freaking awesome. Amazing wine and pictures. Better if they didn’t let screaming children in there…

the best visit of our week of vacation. I recommend it 200%
