Experience a historic wine in an innovative way with a guided visit of Espaço Porto Cruz. A place where you can interactively learn about the different types of port of the PORTO CRUZ brand, explore harmonies and figure out which Porto Cruz best suits your taste, your My Porto Cruz. Thus, it is possible to interact with the product, know and understand your own tastes and adjust combinations.
Discover the port wine producing region: a land of vineyards and memories in our Douro Room. This is a permanent exhibition area where you can view three short films that reflect fundamental aspects of the region where port wine is produced and its founding figures.
In this audiovisual resource, the steps of the wine production process are treated in a simple and intuitive manner, allowing you to follow the cycle of the vineyard, from grape to the glass. A plane trip from the Douro region to Porto and Gaia is also suggested and a movie with six questions about port wine which, from a differentiated and appealing approach, gives details of the history of the region and its wine.
The space also has information on the schist soil, the element that shapes the region and its wines, having available a sample of this stone so that you can feel its texture and density. The terroir of port wine is also interpreted in a facility designed by the architect Alvaro Siza Vieira.
