We were lucky to find a spot without reservation, usually they only take reservations because they are full. We chose their classic port tasting, priced 7,50 eur. They also have white port wine, alongside with red. For each wine a person stayed with us and...More

During our nine months of living in Porto, I’ve sipped more than my fair share of port wine. Yet I hadn’t managed to do one of the port-tasting tours offered by several of the port producers – something that many tourists accomplish in their first...More

We went to Churchill's Visitation Center for Tasting Port Wines in Porto. The staff were very attentive and gave a very good tour and processing techniques of the a center. The tastings included 3 different Port wines. Need to book ahead.

Unfortunately we didn't have much time when we came to Churchill's, but had a great visit anyway. We loved their ports and the little tour and explanation from the lovely lady. We found it a lot less touristy and really pleasant!!! Thank you.

This was a lovely 4-port tasting. Our guide/server was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the port wines we tasted. The presentation of the bottles and glasses was lovely, too, and the tasting room is beautiful!
