  • I went to Cockburn's knowing little to nothing about port wine and assumed from times as a student (always reliable, hah) that I disliked it. Seems times have changed me. I took a tour in an English speaking group. The guide had very good English and was easy to understand and exceptional knowledge of the facility (as I suppose you'd expect). The tour took in the heritage and background of the place, the different storage types and methods of aging, and the huge store warehouse amongst other things. My favourite was a video documenting the construction and reusing of the barrels by the expert coopers; it would have been amazing to see them working first hand. The tour was all incredibly interesting (more so than I expected) and a very enjoyable couple of hours. At the end we enjoyed a sample of 3 different port wines, one of which was a very palatable tawny. I'd definitely recommend going!
  • A really great place to do a tour. One of the biggest in the region, if not the biggest, their production is massive. Great ports to try and drink and the tour guide was so lovely and welcoming. Multiple tours in multiple languages and drinks for all. Worth the trip I’d say, even if it’s just for the bar.
