Graham's Port Lodge
Rua Rei Ramiro 514, 4400-281, Vila Nova de Gaia - Porto and Douro
A journey back in time in Garaham’s.
It affords spectacular views of Porto’s historic city centre and the iconic two-tier bridge that connects the two cities of Oporto and Gaia. The entire Lodge has been recently renovated by the Symington family and all its original features restored. Visitors to the Graham’s Lodge can experience the best of three centuries of craftsmanship and heritage.
Graham’s is still a working cellar. No visit to the Lodge will pass without hearing the sounds of the Coopers’ hammers or seeing the lodgemen collecting samples for the tasting room. The building currently houses over 2,000 pipes (oak casks) and 40 tonels and balseiros (large oak vats) of ageing Port wine, as well as extensive cellars of Vintage Port, ageing in bottle.
The granite walls, over half a metre thick, combined with the maritime climate ensure a constant, cool temperature, ideal for the slow ageing of Port. The high ceiling is still supported by the original Riga Pine beams and the beautiful nineteenth century exterior remains intact.
Graham´s achieved a magnificent total of 16 medals in the 2014 edition of the main international wine competitions, winning the highest number of gold medals of any Port brand.
Graham's visitor center has twelve additional rooms with different environments. These can be used for conferences, meetings, trainings, workshops and other social events. The rooms have capacity 12 to 75 people.

Douro's greatest vineyards belong to the family Symington so the wines are the best. excellent experience and charm in the best Port cellar. Absolutely beautiful environment and outstanding guide, not too long tour and we had plenty of time to drink and enjoy Port wine. Best tour I have ever had and I have visited some of the greatest in Spain and France.
