The Port Wine Cellars, in Gaia, received more than one million visitors in 2022, a significant increase compared to the previous two years, but below the 1.37 million tourists of 2019.

The data was released by the Association of Port Wine Companies (AEVP), which stressed that the cellars located on the Vila Nova de Gaia waterfront, in the district of Porto, are considered the "greatest point of wine tourism in Portugal".

AEVP said, in a statement, that there was "a resumption of visitors" in 2022 in the cellars of its members, which, overall, received 1.09 million people, levels close to the years 2017 and 2018.

“However, we are still a little far from what was the biggest year of tourist reception ever: the year 2019", pointed out the association.
