On a recommendation I decided to do a wine tasting at Graham’s in the Vila Nova de Gaia area on the other side of the river. There are so many places that provide Port wine tasting it was great to feel that it was an excellent choice. They run tours every hour in several languages. It starts with a short video on the history of Graham’s which was very interesting and informative. Then a guide takes you down into the caves to share the history of the port wine making process. This was fascinating. We also saw the private collection (behind bars) and marveled at the various vintage ports. You choose a wine tasting sample at either Euro 5 per person or Euro 10 per person for 3 different samples. I choose the Euro 5.00 and was very pleased with the 3 different wines….all were excellent. Then the tour is finished and you can stay as long as you like enjoying the wine. Or you can choose to have a meal or tapas in their excellent restaurant. We took a taxi there as it is a little further away than the many that are located right on the river front. Taxis are very cheap in Portugal so that was not a problem and I do recommend it as it is uphill all the way. I then walked back down the hill to the river which was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend doing their wine tasting.
