The Burmester lodge, the only lodge in Gaia with natural light inside and with a water stream running in its interior, is located next to Luiz I Bridge, in the lower deck, in Gaia’s riverbank. Guided tours are run across our historical warehouse still with secret corners to be found. It looks as though Henry Burmester, the founder, is still walking around waiting to show us one more cask or even his amazing Vintages cellar. When we believe we can no longer be surprised, the atmosphere of a place and the personality of a brand carry us into another historical journey. By the river, next to Luiz I Bridge, the one designed by Teófilo Seyrig, one breathes the perfume of Port Wine...… Wine store, tasting room and the outer terrace take us back to the present time. Yet, in our memory, this magical place will not be forgotten.
