Has the history of this wine company but not sure if they need to guide because there is so much information already on the walls.

I really enjoyed the short but educational tour of this port wine cellar. It was very reasonably priced and our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgable. It was great to get to taste both the red and white port wine.

We visited Oporto on a day trip as we were on a cruise. The trip included wine tasting at Burmester.. it was very interesting and informative. The port is excellent and we now love white port. The shop is excellent and reasonably priced.

Nice little tour of the port production facility and a bit of history of the process and product after a warm-up drink and canapés upon our arrival. This was followed by a dinner which was pleasant. Food average to good. Service was without fault and they churned out 120 plates of food effortlessly. Ambience great for the type of venue.

In 1750 they moved, however, the office of Vila Nova de Gaia and started trading port. Actually Henry Burmester got his first cask as a wedding gift from his inlaws when he married... More
