Excellent experience five star service, the guide (Mr Fonseca) was superb. It a must when visiting Porto, its a short drive with pleasant stops along the way. The vineyards were distinctive, the attention and atmosphere was unique. Lunch, was a fixed local menu, which exposed us to new dishes, it was very much worth it. The boat ride was a pleasant closure. We are not into tours, however this was more of a day with a local than with a guide, shout-out to Fonseca. I was intimidated at the begging because of the long duration of the experience but I have to admit the time flew by. Me and my family of four had a blast and so much to talk about.

Went on this winery tour/tasting as reviews were great, it was easy to book (not always the case with other Quintas), was reasonably priced, and it did not disappoint! We were greeted at the gates by Suki (the dog; always a bonus), and Bea then took us on a tour around the wine museum, after which we had a very generous tasting of 3 wines and 3 ports, along with other in-house condiments like olive oil, almonds & hazelnuts, some quince, cheese, etc. We never felt rushed, and like the intimate atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Beatrice was a wonderful host and the wine was divine. Relaxed and beautiful location. If I came back to the Douro Valley, I would stop here again to visit.

Really great! Beatrice gave us a memorable time, beautiful tasting place with great care, I recommend!!

Lovely tasting room…saw rainbow! Special afternoon.
