History and learning about my surroundings is an obsession. Being deeply immersed in Canadian History and Newfoundland Culture, I have worked in Museums across Canada for nearly a decade. <br><br>My experience is difference because there are no mass tourist groups or big bus tours. My experience has small numbers which gives us an intimate atmosphere where you can connect and interact with your surroundings. You are free to ask questions and we can have deep discussions. I want to give you a firm understanding of Newfoundland History and a new perspective of the culture!

I'd read about this place in one of the travel guides, but didn't realize it would be as fascinating a bit of local history as it was! The physical vaults are quite imposing and it's mind-boggling to think that they are some of the oldest structures in the city. Our guide did a great job of explaining the commodities trade and how Portuguese wine ended up rather accidentally in Newfoundland... and hence was born a hugely successful enterprise! The sampling of the port at the end of the tour was a treat. I'm not a drinker, but it was delightful!

With a small glass of fine port enjoy a leisurely walk through this small authentic historic wine vault. Helpful posters explain the history of the vault. Probably not worth the admission fee of a few dollars, however, the entry fee also gives you access to the other Provincial museum in St John's, the very worthwhile Commissariat Provincial Historic Home.ll

So happy we visited and got a very good history lesson on Prt wine and its reason for being in St. John's. The tour guide was just great!

Who knew that Port was aged in St. John's NL? Quite a surprise to find this and it was a fascinating tour. The guide was very welcoming and pleasant. The visit was more fun and interesting than we expected and they offered a free glass of Port!

This is a small display but provides an interesting insight into the making (and enjoying) of Port. Do a tour. Enjoy a sample of Newman's finest.
