BOEIRA Portugal in a bottle

Regional Winner - Art and Culture - Porto

Quinta da Boeira has 3 hectares of hundred-year-old gardens at whose centre stands an early-20th-century stately home.

Over the years, the events area has been adapted to suit the changing needs of social and business events. A restaurant was established within the main building, a glazed hall with room for over 200 guests was built in the former stables, an exhibition and events hall for over 300 people was created within the former port wine warehouse, and, most recently, a tasting room for Portuguese wines – the Biggest Bottle (Garrafa) in the world.

The experience in the Garrafa can help visitors to sample and discover Portugal’s different wines regions, as well as the various regional cuisines which accompany them.

Visitors can walk through the historic gardens with species from all around the world, visit the temporary exhibitions in the palace and warehouse, enjoy one of the unusual wine experiences at the Garrafa, and lunch or dine in the various restaurants, amongst the many other events on offer in the various venues.
