Porto: Graham's Port Lodge Guided Tour and Wine Tasting
- Duration: 45 minutes
Just amazing facilities from Calem in their "presentation space" or how could man call it... You could absorb small and well-organized pieces of information about wine production, written, highlighted and displayed on the glass plates, pictures, inscriptions, shelves, and everything you could grasp quickly just in one moment. The guide was funny and nice, but a bit hasty, I would've appreciated more personal commitment to the tour participants. I got the impression, that the presentation of the all information (winery, history of the wine, grapes) was not so structured and a bit messed up, could have had more order in it (but it wouldn't prevent you from enjoying the tour, just my thoughts) :)
This experience was short and sweet. The staff at the venue spoke English very well and were very accommodating to me as a pregnant guest. They provided me with juice whilst everyone else had Port, which was a nice gesture. The tour guide gave a clear and concise explanation about the Ports they manufactured and the process behind it. The Fado Show was good but it would’ve been just as good with only 3-4 songs. Then there would’ve been time to have an explanation on the Ports they provided for tastings. Also it would’ve been nice to have cheese or olives with the crackers at the tasting.
The guide of the wine cellar tour was good. We learnt a lot about the port wine, and its difference from the regular wine. We enjoyed the fado performance a lot. The music and songs were so touching. It is so enjoyably to listen to the music while we were served with port wine, which tasted so good.
Nous avons choisi de faire la visite française début janvier. Nous étions seulement 4, une visite super personnalisée, le guide était top, la visité a duré 1h30 au lieu de 45 min. Pedro parlait parfaitement français, c'est un guide passionné et passionnant. Merci pour cette visite !
Es war ein ganz besonderer Abend für uns. Aufgrund der aktuellen Situation waren wir die einzigen Gäste und konnten somit viel über den Fado erfragen und uns mit den Künstlern unterhalten, die sich auch für ein solch bescheidenes Publikum sehr bemüht haben. Toll.
