Overview

Poças lies in the hands of the 4th generation, being one of the very few Port Wine company that was born Portuguese and still belongs to the same Portuguese family. The Old Tawny Ports have built Poças’ reputation but DOC Douro wines have been proving their own quality over the last 30 years. Recently, Poças received the award of “Fortified wine producer of the year 2018” by the Portuguese magazine “Revista de Vinhos”. Additionally, welcoming about 28 000 visitors per year, our Visitor Center has been also distinguished with the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence. We have plenty of different reasons for inviting you to be part of a true family atmosphere, to feel the unforgettable aroma of the noblest wines and to see up close a real day-to-day cellar routine.

Amazing adventure with the fantastic guide

Amazing adventure with the fantastic guide. Everything was explained super clear and there was also a time to learn about the Porto wine production and the history of the family. Good value to money. The cellar is gorgeous itself and you can smell the wine everywhere there.
Wine with tradition

Tasting the wines and meeting great people was so great :-) It was nice to learn about the region, tradition, and wine itself. The only small thing I would change - to make the tour in cellar a bit slower, it is a lot of information to process :) Thank you for a nice experience.
Excellent customer focus

I was really late, so I didn't do the tour BUT the lady I'd spoken to on the phone made sure I could still do a tasting! I was surprised and incredibly grateful to her (THANK YOU INES). She was absolutely passionate about the products and the heritage - very happy to her share tasting knowledge & opinions if you asked her. As I was by myself I appreciated that she discussed the flavours with me as it really brought the wines and port wines to life.
There were plenty cheeses, jams, crackers etc to see how flavours changed after/with food and this really added to my appreciation of Pocas products.
I would return on another visit and do a different tasting group of products.
The building is unpretentious on the outside but inside WOW a cavernous room, with racks of wine and casks of wine, a bar and plenty tables for the tasting. It's maybe 300-400m from the Vila Nova de Gaia train station (1 stop from General Torres) - very easy to get to.
Wonderful experience and...

Wonderful experience and tasty wines. We are not port fans so we did the VOC (table wines) and port tasting.
Portugese-owned Port House...
Sherry P, 29-10-2021
My husband & I chose the Portuguese-owned Pocas wine cellar because it is a smaller port wine producer located away from the busy tourist area in Porto. We took an Uber to the winery and walked back (downhill) to our hotel along the river. The winery is lovely and our English-speaking guide informative. The tasting room is spacious, allowing for social distancing during the Covid pandemic. The tour group was small and the tour comprehensive. The pourings were generous and very nice. We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.
