A good overview of a family business of port wine. Some interesting parts of the history, toppled off with a taste of port

Quick visit that is definitely worth it. The tour is fun, the wine is tasty, the history is fascinating, the people are great... Definitely worth a visit if you're in downtown St John's

Very informative tour of the vault. Danielle our guide was very good. We went early in the morning before it got busy. That end of Water street is pretty quiet. It was cool to see some original artifacts. A small sample of Port wine at the end. It was good.

a fun little stop in St. John's for history buffs. a short walk from downtown, and they provide a little taste of port as a reward!

Great stop for a short visit. Very interesting and well presented display of the wine vault and history of Newman and Company port. Katherine, the on site tour host, was very knowledgeable and informed on many topics, including the art of port making, and the history of the company and wine vault. The port tasting was delicious and appreciated. Well worth your time, and can fully view the display areas in about 30 minutes.

Enjoyed the history and brief tasting. Not a big place but interesting . A real shame they aren't allowed to sell the port there....never made it to their official liquor store so a lost sale

I'd read about this place in one of the travel guides, but didn't realize it would be as fascinating a bit of local history as it was! The physical vaults are quite imposing and it's mind-boggling to think that they are some of the oldest structures in the city. Our guide did a great job of explaining the commodities trade and how Portuguese wine ended up rather accidentally in Newfoundland... and hence was born a hugely successful enterprise!
The sampling of the port at the end of the tour was a treat. I'm not a drinker, but it was delightful!

With a small glass of fine port enjoy a leisurely walk through this small authentic historic wine vault. Helpful posters explain the history of the vault. Probably not worth the admission fee of a few dollars, however, the entry fee also gives you access to the other Provincial museum in St John's, the very worthwhile Commissariat Provincial Historic Home.ll
