Our hotel in Porto was right on the river. It consisted of two buildings, a palace and a factory built by one of the former owners of the palace. Of course they are completely renovated now.
Since we were staying in Porto it seemed appropriate to visit one of the many Port wine cellars near where we were staying. The hotel made us a reservation at Graham’s Port Wine Cellar. It was only a few miles from the hotel but finding it turned out to be a bit of an adventure. Eventually we made it and enjoyed a tour and tasting.
Duke is not really a fan of port. It is not my favorite either but I thought these ports were wonderful.
From Porto we drove north to the Pausada Mosteiro de Amores. It is a hotel in a wonderful old Monestary.
We played bridge.
Then we had dinner in the Pausada restaurant.
