  • Great selection, they let you taste to help you decide (if they have an open bottle), they will package your purchases very well for travel and the prices are good (better than at some of the port houses). They also have a small selection of Ginja. Highly recommended for all your port purchase needs!
  • Best port and wine shop in Porto. The selection, the service and the price cannot be beat. I found Garraferira do Carmo on my last visit to Porto two years ago and just went there again to say hello to my old friend George and buy some port and wine for our extended stay here in Porto. We will visit him again to choose some bottles to ship to US before we head back. If you're not sure about names, variety and brands don't worry. Just tell them your taste preference and they steer you in the right direction. Yes, they do have expensive and very expensive bottles like old vintage ports, but unless you ask for it, they never push you toward the expensive stuff. On the contrary, they recommend the smaller producers that make better port than the big names at much cheaper price. So, don't be hung up on the famous brands.
  • Very nice shop, the crew is helpful and will aid you in the wine choice. They can send packages with wine at affordable international travel price (you can also order it by mail).
  • Very helpful and friendly people. They even packed all my wines with bubble wrapping for my return flight.
  • Amazing store. We went in without knowing what to buy, so we got an extensive tasting of white and red ports. They also pack it nicely if you travel by plane.
