  • Our stay at Monte da Casteleja was just wonderful! It is a very calm and cosy place and the breakfast was delicious! The location is also great, only a ten minute drive to Lagos which is a very lively city. We can also highly recommend the wine tour to find out more about organic vineyard and to taste exquisite wine and tapas. Thank you very much for making our stay so enjoyable!
  • They didn't show up for our scheduled tour, we were locked out of the gate and wasted 30 minutes and 20 euros to stand in the dirt.
  • A beautiful, quiet and authentic place where you can relax and enjoy the closeness of the real vineyard - at slow pace, relaxed, admiring the nature and vegetation around. The breakfast is served outside, in the company of 3 friendly dogs that makes the morning very enjoyable! It's possible also to join a winery tour and wine tasting of locally produced wines – to know better the history of the farm and especially the winegrower’s approach to the production of organic wines. Hosts are very friendly and helpful - gave us a very useful tips about the places worth visiting in the area and there are many of them!
  • Had a tour there at the small farm where we were shown around the vineyards, cellar and the fermentation room. There were no grapes yet as it is still early in the season (early June) but the hospitality we received was well worth it. It is an organic production and somewhat young (est. 2000), but the 4 wines produced are of great quality, rich flavours and strong taste! You will have to prebook the tour as they do them only on certain days. Recommended for every wine lover :-)
  • Great Wine Tour and Place to stay! Guillaume gave us a lovely walking tour of the winery taking time to explain each step in the wine-making process, including the vines, grapes, harvesting, aging and bottling. It was a great lesson in producing organic wine for the whole family that finished with a generous tasting experience featuring two red and a white wine paired with fresh bread and crostini, soft goat's milk cheese and local artisan honey that WOW-ed us all. If only every winery experience could be this fabulous
