Our first stop in Porto was a great experience. The owner has great knowledge of the wines and ports. We bought 2 wines and a port to drink during our trip. He recommended a great restaurant as well. You must visit this wine shop before leaving Porto!

He is very generous and will let you taste different port wines, while explaining a great deal about the different styles available. Went... More

I have loved to see this place and have had a look over the excellent selection and great choice of Portwines, Wines and some other local products. Small, cosy store beside the bus station of the yellow bus and nearly in front of the sister churches Igreja do Carmo and Igreja dos Carmelitas. The stuff speaks english and can help... More

A small shop but with a very good selection in port of many types, prices and ages. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful staff. Only warning; you might buy more than intended. And they also ship internationally.

Very wide variety of port wines and others in very good price. The service is very helpful and they can recommend something really good not necessarily too much expensive. You can also taste some wine and have your purchased bottles packed in foil and carton in case you would like to transport some wine in your luggage:)

Small store with great selection, friendly and helpful staff and good pricing. We got the 30 year old tawny 35 euro's cheaper then at the Port House itself......

You get a good and attentive service at Carmo, and they also serve you a little tasting if you want. Prices are okay.

Wine choice is indeed extremely limited if compared with other shops in town and it is a good choice only if one does not really look for specific products

Went in a bit nervous as to which bottle of port to buy, given the huge variety on offer. Shouldn't have worried – the service from the gentleman was incredible, polite and extremely helpful. He spoke great English and let us try several ports until we found one that suited both us and someone we were buying a gift for.... More
