The Porto Cruz Space is a project to celebrate the culture of port wine by associating modernity to tradition.

It is a place for information, exhibition and leisure that offers new experiences around the port wine, combining it with artistic creations in fields as diverse as fashion, art and gastronomy.

Together with the permanent content, a seasonal program promotes the artistic and cultural offerings in this space, where one must live the wine.

The architectural project was designed by the architects offices Luc ARSENE HENRY, Alain TRIAUD,  Juliette FAUGERE – Architectes Associes (France) and ARQ 2525 – Arquitetos (Portugal).

Facing Porto and the River Douro, this building occupies a privileged area of the Gaia riverfront.
A meeting point for traders and fishermen since medieval times, it was here they crossed the river to sell the products from the Upper Douro.

The origins of this building, restored in 1881, date back to the 18th century and the expansion of the Port wine trade.

Its restoration in 2012 to install the Porto Cruz Space inspired on the “Woman in Black”, seeks to match tradition and modernity, memory and future and pay tribute to Portuguese culture through its artists.

Tasting Room
Taste the port wine with all your senses, test and stimulate the mind, try new aromas.
The room is next to the Auditorium, equipped with tasting table to challenge the senses in the discovery of the aromas, flavours and colours of the wine. Through a multi-sensory tasting, which combines pleasure in discovery and knowledge, you will be able to take the experience of tasting the wine a step further.

The tasting, of different durations and complexity, is guided by a professional Sommelier together with a multi-touch screen, which will illustrate more expressively the explanations given on the secrets of wine.

There are permanent elements by the sculptor Carlos Barreira that interpret the materials associated with the wine.

The Porto Cruz space is dedicated to the traditions of the Port wine but also has a restaurant where wine flavours and food are presented.
