Explore the Douro Wine Region

O que é bonito neste mundo, e anima, é ver que na vindima de cada sonho fica a cepa a sonhar outra aventura. E que a doçura que não se prova se transfigura noutra doçura muito mais pura e muito mais nova.

Owner’s Bottle & Collection

The Owner’s Bottle concept allows you to bring your bottle of wine, or purchase it at The Lodge, whether you want to enjoy the whole bottle on a special occasion or just the wine by the glass whenever you visit. That way, you can taste your wines, young or aged, preserving the bottle’s contents since we apply the ‘coravin pour’ method, guaranteeing that the remaining wine will continue to age or evolve.

The Owner’s Collection concept allows you to bring and store your wine bottle collection and enjoy wine by the glass from a private collection bottle of your choice. Your collection will be stored in an exclusive space in our wine cellar, where the wines can age in ideal conditions, with temperature and humidity control, in addition to being re-corked whenever necessary.

Price upon request: Please get in touch with our Head Sommelier for further information.
