Small port wasting room
Sep 2020 • Couples
Great view with good tasting. Different to visiting a cave.

Not the cheapest but some good port is we had 1981 port with chocolate. Staff very nice and helpful

Terrific White Port
Sep 2019 • Couples
A very small but the oldest port house. Excellent ports, especially the white one. They gave us chocolate to pair with the port which was perfect and not too sweet. A good stop for a tasting, or glass, and to just chill from the tourist mobs everywhere else.

A treasured experience thanks to both Cristiana's!
Aug 2020
A big shout out to Cristiana and Cristiana (not a typo) who made my birthday extra special this year. We visited the Kopke tasting room beginning of August 2020, and it was a day I will always remember. We tried some of the most delicious port I have ever had - some dating back to the 70s! Our hostesses (both Cristiana's) were so knowledgeable and passionate about their work - we learnt a lot! And was shown an extra special procedure of them opening a bottle of vintage port by 'popping off' the bottle neck using fire and ice! They also enabled me to fall in love with vintage white port - something I would have not gravitated to on my own accord. They paired the port with accompanying chocolates which were exquisite and complemented the port beautifully. I will be returning and I urge people who are interested in this kind of thing, to pay them a visit. Many thanks to Cristiana and Cristiana who certainly pushed the boat out that day and made it a very special occasion! Antra and Paul X

Excellent wine flight with superb service
Mar 2020
Kopke is one of the oldest brands on the hill but with no lodge open to the public this is the place to visit and why not sample some of the wines and ports that aren't freely available in the UK ? We enjoyed the wine/port flight which consisted of 6 - the 20 year-old port was spectacular. We had the cheeseboard which came with bread, crackers as well as some lovely chocolates. The seating areas on the first and second floors features large grand tables with dining chairs and the tables by the large windows at the front of the shop enable you to savour your port whilst watching the world go by. The staff were amazing - friendly, engaging and informative. Definitely one to visit.

Flight of Port with Choco Pairing!
Feb 2020
Guys- what a lovely place. We LOVED their ports, and we were so impressed by the ladies who worked there. They spent time, probably 30 minutes, after our tasting further educating us on Port Wine, the history of wine in Portugal, etc. We were beyond impressed with the service that we received. Also, the flight of port wines came with chocolate (added bonus). We are excited to continue enjoying this port wine in the USA when we return, by ordering their wines online. :)

Makes a change from walking around and doing tours
Dec 2019 • Solo
I wanted to enjoy some port in a port house without having to do a tour as I had done two already. I read about Kopke on T/A and had drunk their port in my home town.

I turned up there in the late afternoon, chose two recommended ports and went upstairs and was fortunate enough to get a table by the window where I could people watch as the sun was setting over Porto. My two glasses turned up about 5 minutes later and they were both lovely as was the chocolate. No rush, no hard sell.

Considering I was charged a shocking 12 euro for a glass of port the night before in a restaurant, I did not find the prices at Kopke to be anywhere near as expensive as other reviewers have said.

Chocolate pairing
Dec 2019 • Couples
The setting is lovely and the building beautifully maintained. No tour but you can pick the ports per glass you’d like to taste or do a selection. Of wine and port they put together. Ports are paired with chocolate which are well made and of high quality.
Bit pricey compared to normal tours but more pleasant.

Try the 1966
Oct 2019 • Couples
They get very busy and you may have to wait to be seated. There is no tour of the cellars but the Port they have available for tasting is an extensive list. The staff are awesome and it's worth the visit to try some outstanding port.

Oldest lodge and some of the best wines
Sep 2019
Lovely tasting session in their air conditioned tasting room upstairs. Staff were great and we ended up buying a couple of bottles to take home. I think their tawny port is now a firm favourite. Good prices too.

Port excellence
Sep 2019
Had a wonderful relaxed port tasting here. Very engaging, friendly, informative staff. Tasting room overlooks the hustle bustle of the crowds along the river. Enjoyed their ports enough to buy a twenty year tawny to bring home. Definitely opened our eyes and pallets to the world of port.
