200 Port Wines under one roof, Vinologia in Porto

What is a French guy doing in Portugal championing Port Wines, I wondered first when I discovered Vinologia or 'La Maison du Porto' in French.

The idea of finding 200 Port Wines under one roof, you just have to make the trip to Porto, sounds appealing.

Best of all if I am not mistaken you can taste them all.

The site seems to be available only in French and German and could use some updating.

It looks Vintage 1999 but as they say you can't judge a book by its cover.


The Vinologia site says that besides 200 Ports available by the glass, they offer guided tastings to flights of ports including 3 to 8 selections.

They can also suggest food pairings for your wine picks.

Vinologia opened its doors in 2000 in Ribeira the historic center of Porto which was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

Hopefully they are still around.

Because her book (published in February 2010 by Clarkson Potter) shows that anyone can do it even with limited space, she describes 'Grow Great Grub' as an 'essential encouraging guide'. Why too? The book combines various threads that I've been following from edible gardens to eating...
