Top Pick of the Porto Wine Tours

Just in case you’re in a hurry and want to know which wine tour Porto is known for, it’s Cockburn’s, and I’ve highlighted it below.

I recommend this one because you can sample a Classic, Vintage or Premium, and the best part is to see the Coopers in action (be sure to book this tour during the weekday).

If you are wondering what is a Cooper, they are the craftsmen who make and repair barrels. This skill dates back centuries and has changed very little over time. Making barrels still requires the hands of an expert, and no other tour in Porto allows you to see them in action.

Port Wine Tours in Porto

What is Port Wine? It’s a deliciously sweet, red wine that’s been fortified with a little extra kick of distilled spirit. It’s the kind of wine you’d usually enjoy after a meal, like a dessert wine or with a cheese course. Watch out for the higher alcohol content too – of around 20%.
