Wonderful staff, great ports, and wonderful Arcadia chocolates to pair with the ports. It is my favorite of the port houses we have visited. You can sample as many or as few as you wish and no pressure to purchase.

This is not your typical port-tasting experience! There's no tour, and the venue isn't very large. I'm not sure if reservations are available, but I arrived just after lunch on a weekday and had no problem getting seated right away. In addition to some delicious tastings of ports that serve as a good introduction to ports in general, Casa Kopke offered a better range of more interesting tasting options than most other places in Porto. I opted for a selection of vintages that I wouldn't be able to find at home, and the tasting was prepared efficiently. I was given some time to myself to enjoy the selection, then after a little while one of the staff stopped by my table to discuss what I had tasted, and ports in general.

The location is central, not far from the bridge and right on the water. This is a great option if you're new to ports and want to duck in someplace classy to try some without taking the time for a tour in a group, but the real strength is in the range of options available for tasting and purchase.

We loved our visit here. You enter through the shop and have chance to look at the tasting menu before heading upstairs to enjoy. We didn't need to book in advance, but unsure if you might have to on a busier day. We opted for 3 ports and 2 wines, which were paired with crackers and chocolates. Everything was delicious and the host gave us just the right amount of information. She understood we had already done a port tasting so didn't go into too much detail about the different styles, which we really liked. We also had an excellent view of the river too, which is a great bonus!

This was our favorite port out of all the ones we tried. Very cool because it’s the oldest port house in Porto. The staff was incredibly friendly and the view is beautiful. This was the only place we bought from!

We greatly enjoyed a five wine tasting here. We were served a dry red, a dry white, a white port, a red port and a tawny port. The servings were generous and there was enough for us to share one tasting. At 25 euro per tasting, it is a little pricey. Crackers, water and a few chocolates come with the wine.

Thank goodness they do not subject you to a tour and lots of gab. You pay for and get a tasting with as much explanation of the wines as you want. Once you are served, they leave you alone to enjoy in peace.

We were very impressed with the Kopke tawny port. Delicious and complex and we generally do not care for sweet wines. This is one we will add to our liquor cabinet.

We went to 11 Port Houses and this was the only negative experience. We arrived at 18:15 and we were told they were closing and told us to come back the next day (in an abrupt way) So we went back the next day at 12:45 and were told they were closing for lunch by the three staff on duty. The attitude of the staff was poor, very rude and condescending. Really poor. I cannot understand why they close for lunch when they have so many staff on duty, why do they not take staggered lunches. They do not seem to understand that they are in a service industry. So we went and spent our money elsewhere in a Port House that was open and friendly, like they all seem to be.

Tastings at the oldest port wine house are expensive but the experience is formal and refined. Tasting experience was not hurried and we tasted five very good ports for 43 euros. Not cheap tasting but ports were reasonably priced in first floor store.

Oldest Port Wine house in Porto, and probably the best. Their tasting room is right next to the river on the Gaia side, and the attendants are very knowledgeable about all the wines. We got our own tasting room on the third level, and casually sipped 5 wine samples while the attendant gave a brief overview of each style: semi-dry white, sweet and tanin heavy reds, and the plum flavored tawny. We recommend ordering 2-3 extra samples, like the 20 year old tawny. Although there is no tour, it gives you more time to get down to business... The fortified wines are slow sipping drinks!

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.
