Trip Summary

Port Tasting Holiday

This Port tasting tour is designed for those on a tighter budget who would like a simple short break in Porto. However, in common with all Grape Escapes tours, we don’t skimp on quality just because it is inexpensive. Walking between each destination, you will visit the famous Sandeman Port wine lodge, which boasts a magnificent view of Porto. Here, your English-speaking guide will accompany you through the lodges full of casks of ageing Porto wine and your visit will conclude with a tutored tasting of four ports; a White, a Ruby Reserve, an LBV and a ten year old Tawny.

The food at the Bolsa Palace was without comparison. A rich and decadent meal with courses that kept on coming. The lunch menu was delicious too, and gave us a good grounding for the local cuisine. The local wines that complimented the meals also gave us the taste for the local vineyards beyond the port too.
