  • The Sandemam is my favorite wine for the ports. The visit well set and with guides who know the ins and outs and the history of port wine is priceless. The beauty of the building and of the aging barrels add up the distinctive aromas of maturing wines, creating an atmosphere that fascinates even those who don't appreciate the drink. At the end the expected tasting, one white and one red, both excellent reserve. By 6 euros to pay for the visit, I can't think of a better way to spend this amount. The store attaches guard good options, both in Mayan rare wines and beautiful accessories.
