It wouldn’t be a Portugal river cruise without at least one evening devoted to tasting the many port wine varietals of the Douro Valley. We’ve arranged an exclusive cocktail function showcasing 12 of the region’s port wines – both red and white – at the spectacular Burmester Cellars.
Located at the foot of the historic Dom Luis I pedestrian bridge as you enter into the heart of Porto, these Cellars are among the most celebrated wine caves in Porto. Built at the end of the 18th century and remaining true to their original architecture, the light and temperature of this region create optimal conditions for the creation of the finest port wines in the world.
Burmester Cellars opens its doors exclusively to Scenic guests for a memorable evening to enjoy fine port wine, fine dining and Fado music. Fado is indigenous to Portugal and its style is unmistakable due to its long-form melancholic storytelling style. Drink in the atmosphere of this uniquely Portuguese experience and appreciate the complexity of centuries of history that have led to this very modern and beguiling nation.
