  • During our stay in Porto, we had expressed the wish to visit one of the cellars and during our walk along the water, we are challenged by a person at the entrance to the cellars Vasconcellos, who invites us to visit. Here instead of the large cellars, the visit is customized just for us and with a guide, Alexandre, who spoke very good french. He really well explained the origin of the Porto, the manufacturing, the appelations Tawny, Ruby, 10 years, 20 years... Really very nice for put you water in the mouth. So after the visit, a tasting of wines and porto was proposed to us and we were not disappointed. The system is also very attractive, either you pay the tour and tasting (€10 /pp), or we buy for less than €25 /pp and the visit and tasting are offfertes.

  • Left for a simple visit with tasting (10 euro per person) because no baggage, we came out, after a superb visit by Carla Silva followed by a very nice tasting, with a command of close to 500 euros (with home delivery, free for the Douro 12 and paid for the porto). very nice visit and good report quality / price for this craft production next to its large neighbours international, too impersonal. 20/20 for guide Carla, 19/20 for tasting and 18/20 for the cellar.

  • We had a nice time with our guide Clara who explained well with passion all things to know. She speaks very good french and loves what she does. I highly recommend this tour and it's a port of great quality away from the big business houses.

  • Fantastic place, and fantastic port. We were treated so well, and so personally. The tasting was everything a port tasting should be. Intimate, personal, leisurely, 0 pressure to buy (but wow, did we buy!) and tasty. If you want to sample GOOD port, then compare it to some AMAZING port, this is your place.
  • Small batch high quality tawny port producer. They only sell their port at this location. Tour was just two of us and the tasting is complimentary - keep in mind for the tasting to be this way they have to sell port to those who visit. This is not a hard sell though as their ports are very delicious! Be careful if you taste the older ports or you might end up buying them!
  • I really wanted to like this place because the tour is private and it is a small producer of port and our guide Jorge was very passionate, but in the end I just found their ports to be a bit too thin and racy for my tastes, and there was kind of an awkward, simultaneously hard and soft sell to get us to buy something—seemingly anything—at the end of our tour and tasting that I was not a fan of.
  • The Port here is decent, but the employee we dealt with was presumptuous and unprofessional. There are better cellars.
  • Absolutely great experience! Very clear explanation done by a passionate young man. Very professional yet it feeled as we were at home. Also the tasting was excellent, very very good port wines. Perfect!
