Porto Calem Tours

84 Reviews
Porto Calem
Founded in 1859 by António Alves Cálem, Porto Calem is one of the most celebrated wineries in the Porto region. Located at the heart of the Douro Valley, the family-run winery produces some of Portugal’s finest port wines, using centuries-old production methods and offering a completely unique tasting experience for wine lovers.
 
The Basics
Visitors can discover Porto’s history on a guided tour of the winery, peek into the wine cellars, and visit the winery museum. The highlight of a visit is a guided tasting at the wine bar, overlooking the Douro River, where you can sample varieties including white port and tawny port. For the full experience, sign up for a thrilling 5D wine tasting journey or enjoy a traditional live fado (local style of folk song) show, followed by wine tasting.

How to Get There
Porto Calem is a 15-minute drive from central Porto, located on the riverside of Vila Nova de Gaia, where it is the closest cellar to the Dom Luiz I bridge. Vila Nova de Gaia is easily reached by metro from Porto—hop off at Jardim do Morro station and the wine cellar is just a few minutes’ walk west along the waterfront.
 
When to Get There
Porto Calem is open for tours and tastings year-round, but the busiest times are in July and August, when it’s best to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
 
What Is Port Wine?
Produced exclusively in Douro Valley, port wine is a sweet fortified wine that has been produced in the area since the 12th century. Today, the traditional wine is preserved on the UNESCO World Heritage Site and exported all around the world. Port wine is typically a red dessert wine, but other varieties to look out for include tawny ports (wood-aged red port), rose port, and white port, which is a popular ingredient in local cocktails.
