Conference Dinner

Settle down onto the terrace and admire the view: beneath your eyes over the Unesco World Heritage view of Porto, and the sinewy curves of the Douro river. The Yeatman, located in the heart of Vila Nova de Gaia, the historical headquarters of the Port wine houses, owes its name to a family of British traders who are still active today: their legacy can be found in the subtle décor of the guest rooms, the magnificent hotel cellar with its fine collection of Portuguese wines and the wine-tasting programmes offered by the hotel.

The Restaurant features Portuguese cuisine made with fresh, local produce can be savored with fine wine. No wander this hotel joined the Relais & Châteaux just a few years after opening, if fits the association motto perfectly: Caractère, Courtoisie, Calme, Charme et Cuisine.

Port Wine Cellars

Before the dinner at The Yeatman we will have the chance to enjoy a walk in the historic center of Vila Nova de Gaia and visit the Port wine cellars.
