A very nice place to visit, very professional, but extremely commercial tour guides - almost like being in the US. However, if the nature, view and a nice tasting is the goal - it is worth it.

A great thing to do when around. The space itself is truly amazing, especially the degustation room and the view from it. They have many options for visit - from 6 euros with visit and 2 drinks to 30+ euros, with special vines and food. We opted for the cheapest one and it was very nice! The guide (Ana) was... More

If you have a chance to go to the Alto Douro you should. The landscape is stunning. Many wineries are located in cliffs above the Douro River. Hire a your guide or rent a car and take your time here. It's beautiful.

Without a doubt the view from the tasting room is one of the most impressive in the area. It is situated on the top of one of the peaks of the valley with a gorgeous view of the river and surrounding vineyards. You can sit in cozy chairs with 30+ feet floor to ceiling glass windows if you don't care... More

While the tour was very well done and the building is very nice the port reminds me of medicine. The white was not cold at all so my suggestion is when there are only 2 people don't pour it until they sit. Also way too many little flying things there are natural items that can be used to keep them... More

We visited this winery for the view and ambience. The surprise was great wine by the glass with no tour.

Went for just the tasting room. Might not be kosher to skip the tour if it were busier but I heard from other reviews the tour wasn't good. The drive up was amazing as are the views. Great place to try some port at the source.

While the tour was cheap and we enjoyed the wine and the view from the factory's balcony, the tour itself wasn't good. It was incredibly short and the guide explained very little about the wine - for example, she only mentioned the types of different port wines without actually explaining the differences between them. If we haven't been through a... More

Very nice winery with a excellent view in the traditional port wine area. The introduction tour with wine tasting is quite well worthy. Personally we think now is the best time to visit, by avoiding the peak season and hot weather, also with the chance seeing grapes being hand picked in the valley.
