What it was already excellent, is now even better! Here you will learn about the history of Port wine, how it was produced in the beginning as compared to modern days, how it was brought to Porto to age and then shipped to Britain. Here you can enjoy your wine tasting up on the terrace while taking in the magnificent views over the city of Porto. You have to do a bit of climbing to reach Rua do Choupelo but it’s worth the effort!
