  • The Port Wine Museum is settled on the ground floor of the Cais Novo warehouse, a building from the seventeenth century which was built to be the wine deposit of the Companhia Geral da Agricultura das Vinhas do Alto Douro (General Company of Agriculture of the Alto Douro Vineyards). This museum is dedicated to the study of the relevance of Port Wine and its trade to the development of the city. Porto's history cannot be dissociated from the history of the wine that made the city famous worldwide. It conditioned the city's cultural, architectural and social growth. The Museum is intended to be a memory of all those influences and transformations, and at the same time, it conveys the history of the three Portos brought together: Porto the city, Porto (Port) the wine, and Porto the Douro river harbour.
