WOW - The World of Wine
Background

WINE EXPERIENCE

Portugal’s identity and potential in the world of wines has inspired us to create a unique space which will be on the must-see list of things to do in Porto for all wine lovers.
This will be “the” place of reference to learn more about Portuguese wines and contextualize them among the great wines of the world. It will take us on a journey with the best Portuguese producers through the various regions from North to South, with a leap across to the islands of Azores and Madeira.
Through it, we will understand Portugal’s rich diversity of vineyards, soils, grape varieties, weather patterns and winemaking techniques. This unique and unforgettable experience in Porto can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.

Background

PLANET CORK

Portugal is the world leader in the production of cork. Yet this natural tree bark is not well understood.
Much more than the best way to seal a wine bottle, cork is an immensely versatile and natural product that we may find in our car engines, our homes and we even use it in space.
This unique museum in Porto will allow visitors to experience the journey of cork, as it unfolds from the tree to all its various uses.

Background

FASHION & DESIGN

The World of Wine will house Fashion and Design museum in an imposing historic residence and converted Port wine lodges, a space that will show how large and diverse the Fashion and Design industry is in Porto and North Portugal.
The Porto region is home to many inspired designers who have made, and continue to make, their names on the world stage.
This exciting industry has lacked a showplace in which to tell its story, until now.

PORTO REGION ACROSS THE AGES

For over a thousand years, Northern Portugal, its towns and cities have been one of the most exciting places to live.
Since early times, its rich soil and temperate climate have produced agricultural wealth. It has given its name to a nation, projected the country of Portugal through trade and exploration of the world. It has seen famine, boom and bust. But, come what may, it has always kept alive the spirit of its people.
This experience tells the story of those people through a sequence of interactive experiences. It will be an essential first stop for any visitor to Porto.

THE HISTORY OF DRINKING VESSELS

Since the early days of the human race, people have used wine for ceremony and conviviality. Whether toasting a friend or tasting a great wine, the vessels we use for drinking tell a story.
The basic principle is simple – a drinking vessel needs to be able to hold a liquid and be able to be drunk from. At that point, things change. Princes and paupers have consumed from different vessels. Design has adapted over time. New production methods have brought in new materials and mass production needs have caused changes.
Discover how things have changed over the last 8000 years.
