Catavino – theLab is a wine shop, tasting room, art gallery and event space located on Porto’s Rua do Bonjardim, an off-the-beaten track passageway full of creative, delicious and cultural inspiration. We feature a rotation of local artists and natural, organic and low-intervention wines, and we try our best to embrace a holistically sustainable business model that involves and benefits our local community.
This dynamic place is designed to leave pretension at the door in lieu of new ideas, radical flavors, and powerful communities. Consider it your cozy corner space to meet new people, try new wines, and to learn a thing or two about Portuguese culture. Sign up for news and tasting/event info via theLAB’s Wine Time Newsletter.
Wine Shop & Tasting Room – try and/or buy Portugal’s diversity of artisanal, sustainable and harder-to-find wines.
Offering drop-in Themed Tastings focusing on grape varieties, regions, winemaking techniques, etc and appointment-only Intro to Portuguese Wine or Natural/Organic Wine Tastings. You can also create a Custom Private Wine Tasting just for you!
Art Gallery – we feature work from Catavino’s staff and highlight local Portuguese artists who’ve created exceptional photography, paintings, sculptures, and more! New exhibit opening every 2 months.
Workshops & Events – throughout the year, we host a wide range of workshops and talks that tantalize our interests or palates! From “Crafting Coffee” to “Painting with Port”, watch our events calendar for more information.
