Churchill’s 1982 Bar is open in our river-view garden with social-distancing-friendly group picnics and cocktails. Click here to book. 

Breathe the fresh air, feel the grass beneath your feet, and takein the stunning views of the river and city beyond while enjoying Churchill’s wines and delicious food from local producers. 

1982 bar is set in Churchill’s garden, an oasis of terraced green in the middle of the ancient Gaia entrepot, providing a perfect place to reconnect with friends and family after months of distancing. Named after the year of Churchill’s first Vintage declaration, the bar’s casual vibe and minimalist-natural style live up to Churchill’s distinction as the first port house of the millennial (port) generation 


  • Pre-packed Picnic ‘case’ (4pax) — Developed by Churchill’s in partnership with local artisanal food producers. Each group will have exclusive access to a shaded picnic table in a prime garden location, where you can enjoy a curated crate of Churchill’s Estates wine, Churchill’s port, and mix of locally-sourced premium meat, cheeses, produce, and treats. 
  • Drink and a bite — For smaller groups and those looking for a simple drink and chill, 1982 Bar will also be serving up original port-inspired cocktails and wines by the glass, along with meat and cheese boards. Have a seat at one of our terrace café tables or bring your own blanket and lay out on the Churchill’s garden lawn. (Churchill’s blankets also available for purchase.  We want to let you borrow them, but safety first.).  
  • Private / Semi-Private Events — Having a birthday / engagement party / fun Sunday? 1982 Bar can give you the space to spread out and the make the day yours.  We’ll work to your needs to make fun things happen for you.

About 1982 Bar and Churchill’s:

1982 Bar gets its name from Churchill’s first declared vintage port — Churchill’s Vintage Port 1982.  

If that seems recent for a town and industry steeped in history, you’re right.  Despite our famous name, Churchill’s is really a start-up port house.  We were founded by winemaker Johnny Graham 1981 when he was just 28 years old because he wanted to make a drier style of port and run a business in his own way.  40 years later, Johnny still makes the wine and runs the company, supported by the next generation of his family who were born only slightly after the company. 

1982 Bar lives in Churchill’s garden, a unique oasis of green amidst the ancient grey warehouses of Cais da Gaia. At Churchill’s we have always kept this part of our lodge untouched to remind us of the wild nature of the Douro Valley and provide a special place to enjoy our ports and our wines within the big city.  

Summer 2020 seemed like the right moment to share our special spot with the world.  We hope you enjoy it.
