What you'll do

Did you know that the PORT WINE triggered one of the oldest appellations in the world in 1756? Throughout this experience ALL THE WINES ARE PAIRED with a bite that will enhance its taste.

Port wines hold a great kind of varieties - WHITE PORT WINES, RED PORT WINES, and ROSE PORT WINES - with a wide range of sweetness and a broad variety of colors.

We will begin our experience with some quick remarks on how to taste Port wine and better know each other while exploring the XXI century ROSE PORT WINE, which follows a revolutionary production process and is fruity and sweet, perfect to drink as a cocktail.

We will then dive into the WHITE PORT WINE with a dry one and then a sweeter one, which tends to be fruitier and more complex and a vintage one.

We will continue our experience with the RED PORT WINE category in which we will try two widely different TAWNYS, which are obtained from grapes that are aged in oak casks or barrels and are fresh, complex and woody yet extremely well balanced; a RUBY which is a full-bodied and fruity, obtained from the blend of wines from various harvests; and a rare CRUSTED which ages for two years in wooden barrels and is bottled without filtration.

Born in Lisbon, I've been dedicated to the amazing world of Port Wines since 2013 when I started to host private tastings for friends and friends of friends. Later on I decided to move to Porto, become a professional sommelier and work full-time in the Port Wines industry. I worked several years for the main brands, hosted countless of tastings in their cellars and now it is time for me to share with this amazing community the best of each Port wine brand.

It was a very nice and fun introduction to the art and origins of port. We've heard interesting stories about the history and the winemaking process. We tasted some great port wines and it always felt informal and educative. It is really nice to have an independent expert for a change!

I wouldn't have gone to Ferragudo if I didn't see this experience on Airbnb. The entire experience was wonderful and magical and I felt I got to learn so much more about a small town as a part of this experience. The whole experience was extremely personalized and well planned. It was amazing to see how the town has preserved its heritage over the last few decades. I enjoyed both the tour portion as a well as the food and drink portion of this experience. I'd highly recommend it to anyone going to Faro or Lagos.

Joao’s knowledge of port wines is immense and he translates it beautifully in a way that everyone can understand the subtle differences and processes of port wine making. The selection of wines were amazing and so was the location and accompaniments. Joao also recommended some really good bottles for us to take back from Porto. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Porto.

Very nice wine tasting at a very unique establishment. I would've never found this place otherwise. It was also a lovely presentation and our host had extensive knowledge about port wine. The port wine tastings were all very good and the cheese platter was a very thoughtful combination. I also enjoyed the port and tonic which was delicious! I highly recommend this tour if you're in Porto.

Great experience. João knows his Port. He was very knowledgable, friendly and good at responding questions. I’d recommend it to everyone who is interested in Port.

Joao has deep knowledge combined with a real passion for the topic of port wine. The setting was an old and quaint tavern - a unique place we would not have found on our own. We learned a lot and had a great time. Highly recommend!
