  • Great prices, great service. no doubt the best place to buy port. you get George, with GREAT knowledge to be on your side, is the best thing you can hope for at a store. I will be back, for sure.

  • 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!

Where to stay in Porto

Portugal's second city offers a healthy variety and quantity of accessible accommodations. The historical city center on the northern bank of the River Douro teems with hotel options, ranging from budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses, which often have shared rooms, to upscale, luxury hotels housed in larger buildings and packed with amenities. All of these options place you conveniently close to the town's main sights, including churches, historical squares, and more. On top of that, many hotels on the northern bank boast good views from their hilltop vantage points. If you want to save big on cost, it's worth considering a more low-key hostel or small hotel on the less-popular southern bank.
