  • Small wine cellar next to the Cathedral of Carmo could even pass unnoticed ... Well, there we had one of the best experiences in Porto. The owner is a sympathy only, very thoughtful! Gave us precious information about the wines of the Douro and Alentejo. Brought home special wines, different trade marketeer of the big stores. Great prices! Pack the bottles very well for shipment. I recommend very much!

  • Entered to this store looking for a came concrete, to the ask by he, the Mr that us attended said that it had (to a price lower that in it own winery), but us asked the reason of search that came, as had others very similar, of best quality and lower price. After this, he began to explain different options, accompanying each explanation with a tasting of the wine in question; Red, white and rosé. In total, we gave to try some 8 wines. Since then, a try fantastic, some authentic professional that actually care to the client. Recommended 100 percent.

  • Fabulous...had only slight idea of what we were looking for. He spoke excellent English. Asked questions, made suggestions. Easily spent 30 minutes in his store. We enjoyed a mini taste test, which was extremely helpful in making our choice. A great little store, stocked full of varieties. Well priced also. Worth the walk to get there. Very friendly staff. He even wrapped our bottles for travel, advising of duties & taxes if we shipped home. Go there!
  • Easily the best wine buying experience ever. Fantastic selection, fantastic service, fantastic price!
  • Had a great and easy going experience tasting and purchasing Porto's specialty Port wine. Absolutely fantastic service even though we made it clear we had a smaller budget.
  • The best wine shop in Porto. Altough we arrived after the program, we were well recived and spend there at least 30 minutes (we were undecided). The guy there recomended to us better wines than we saw and tasted in the cellars and he explained to us why a worst wine is more expensive in the celars than in the shop. We really liked him and we are thankfull to him and his advices.
  • My favorite wine store in the world! George is so helpful, knowledgeable and all-around wonderful. Excellent service and wide range of choices.
