  • 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.
  • Excellent costumer service ! In English or in French if necessary (and well spoken too). The staff is aware of the restrictions in common countries (for instance, in Canada/Quebec). Possibility to taste some products. The prices are lower than anywhere else (lower than supermarkets and other alcohol stores). Nor do the staff try to sell you more expansive products than necessary : they are very blunt and honest about quality vs notoriety vs price. If you are going home by plane, your chosen products will be wrapped up to protect them. Wonderful experience !
  • Friendly expert advice (in good English if required) on their vast range of Port, Madeira, brandy etc. If your bottles are going home in your luggage, tell them, and they'll make an airline-proof lightweight package in moments.
