Overview

Built by a family of winemakers from the Douro, in 1751, Ferreira possessed a rich tradition and a prominent role in the history of Porto Wine. Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira contributed significantly to the consolidation of the brand. A legendary woman with a unique personality, who became a myth and a symbol of strength, facing the adversities of nineteenth-century Douro. Ferreira Cellars invite you to discover a brand over 250 years old, a symbol of the highest quality that encapsulates Portugal's heart and soul.

Visited here on a group tour so cannot comment on the costs. It was interesting but when you have been on one tour you have seen all there is to see. Large vats, smaller vats, some bottles piled high then a tasting.

Although I am not a wine drinker, I learned a lot about how Port wines are created, aged and then exported. I have never seen barrels so big! The guide was excellent and knew her stuff and obviously loved her work. My friends really enjoyed...More

Went on the classic tour which was the only tour available that day for some reason. The tour group was quite large but our guide spoke really well and was very knowledgeable. Great tour for beginners to Port wine.

I was looking forward to much more than just a lecture on various types of wines produced at the Cellar. The entrance costs includes tasting of wine and there are batches for the guided tour. An average expeirience. The wines are indeed tasty.

I know Porto is the home of port but the rest of the world has caught up. Novices might find the tour good but I'm old and been drinking the world's ports for 42 years and it was just a tour for tourists.

Hi KJ. As Pawel said, not sure where you're leaving from. We got Ubers between Porto airport and the old town, which were easily booked through the app and cost less than €20 each way. The port cellars are all across the... More
