Having navigated the Alto Douro from Spain we finally arrive at the home of my favourite port ‘Fonseca’. We had the short but invaluable tour of the vines, the winery and many feet crushing the grapes,and the tasting itself. A wonderful experience to be had....More

Location is easy to find and very nice and beautiful, we found it very not friendly as there was only one person to give service and take payments so we did not stay long as we wanted.

What's not to love about the Douro Valley. Unless you are already having a love affair with Fonseca Port wine, skip this fake tour. What you will pay 10 Euros per person for is an audio guide that gives basic information about the vineyard and...More

We sought this quinta on the recommendation of our hotel and Rick Steves. The 10 euros for the tour included use of the English-speaking audioguide and three port tastings. We found the audioguide to provide the right amount of information without getting too technical. The...More

Red some reviews and even looks this place up in Rick Steves. Just seemed like it is a very poorly run Quinta. We began our drive up the narrow, barely paved road - at about 2/3's up the road we are completely blocked by a...More

This winery produces the Fonseca brand of port. We loved being given some audiophones (with narrative in English, among others), and sent on our way alone to walk at our pace though their picturesque vineyards. The views were beautiful. Afterwards we were given three samples...More

Panascal offers a self-guided tour of their Quinta using an MP3 device. I enjoyed doing this (despite the rather dry English commentary) and the price of €10 includes tasting of three ports.
