A Culinary Port House Experience

Since the 18th century, the city of Porto has been synonymous with the production of Port, a long-aging, fortified wine prized by the English and collectors around the world. For many wine enthusiasts Port wines are synonymous with dessert. However, in this port and food pairing experience you will discover an array of flavor combinations as you enjoy a tour and tasting at one of two outstanding Port loges: Churchill's, Portugal's rising star with highly regarded vintages that rate among the best by Wine Spectator.

Churchill's Port Lodge was founded by John Graham, whose family's roots in the Port trade date back to 1820. The family sold their Port business in 1970, yet Graham found the draw of the wine business too strong and founded Churchill's in 1981. Late, in 2004 he established Churchill Estates which produces both an exciting array of rejuvenated dry wines as well as their top-rated Ports. Wine Spectator's lead Portuguese wine taster, Kim Marcus, called Graham a "Spiritual father of the new generation of Portugal's vintners" and included two of their wines in her 2012 top list of Douro dry wines. Your private tour will include a lectured wine tasting of a rare dry white wine, a Ruby, Tawny and Vintage Port paired with a selection of small bites.
