Had great time and gained some knowledge about wine making. Our driver/guide Bruno was very good he has only bean doing tours for a few months. However he answered all our questions and the other driver/guide I think Joao was on hand and very helpful. I'm not that knowledgeable about wine and don't know the finer points but the wine we tasted was excellent. I would consider doing tour again sometime in the future. The stop at Salves Castle was interesting and the views were fantastic.

Fantastic and informative tour! Our lovely guide João is excellent ~ he is very friendly and funny, which made the experience more memorable. We visited cork trees and learnt about cork production for the wine bottles, visited Silves and the castle, then listened to anecdotes along the way to the winery about its history. Upon arrival we learnt about wine production and the interesting history of the owners. The wine tasted great and they provide snacks too! Thank you João for the experience and we wish you all the best for the future ~ Obrigada :)

Our guide João was excellent! We unknowingly booked the tour on a bank holiday and João contacted the owner to open the winery just for us! He spent time explaining things about the region as we traveled to Silves and the winery, making the trip much more than just a wine tour. The winery was in a stunning setting. I would highly recommend for anybody looking for a relaxed afternoon looking to explore more of rural Algarve.
