  • Although somewhat hidden because it is a small building, worth crossing the street to get a perfect view. Upon entering the bottles lining the walls, with all prices in the form of handwritten label and with a calligraphy only. Very cheap prices and amazing service. Surely one of the most beautiful shops of the world.

  • The site has a huge variety of wines, with fair prices and impeccable service. Well worth visiting and buy there, as it has much better prices than the "caves", these we can visit and enjoy, but in price ... the wine cellar is unbeatable, and the wines are the same. It also has several labels of small producers in the region. If you don't know much about wine, no problem, the staff teach everything and has also, besides tasting package to take the bags, all very organized. In addition to buying, we'll learn about the wines. Nobody pushes products, it is all explained honestly. Is close to Torre dos Clérigos, Universidade do Porto and Livraria Lello. Anyway, be sure to go there ...

  • 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.
