Port Wine

Port is one of the world's great classic wines. The grapes are grown in the mountainous upper Douro Valley two hours drive inland from Oporto.

This spectacular area, where the vineyards are planted on narrow walled terraces clinging to the steep mountainsides, was the first wine region to be legally demarcated in 1756. Its historic vineyards are a World Heritage site.

After the wine is made, it is brought down to the ‘lodges' of the Port houses in Oporto to be aged and blended. Located a few steps from these ancient cellars, The Yeatman is the ideal starting point for a visit to the most famous Port houses. Moreover its link with the Port trade will allow it to offer an unparalleled Port selection including many rarities.

For the wine lover, a trip to the spectacular Douro Valley is not to be missed. The Yeatman is uniquely placed to organize visits and itineraries in this extraordinary wine region. Cruise boats linking Oporto to the vineyard area depart from the quayside a few minutes walk away. Arrangements can also be made for guests to travel to the Douro Valley by train, considered to be one of the great railway journeys in the world.
