  • Excellent surprise that cave that is not on the main circuit of the cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia. The way there is a delight for the alleys and stone fireplaces. We were extremely well received by the team in a warm atmosphere with a crackling fireplace, armchairs and tables of barrel. The ride through the basement was more than the sympathy and kindness of our host. The explanations are very informative and interesting. The wines then, forget it. Harmonisation with chocolates is a must!!! 1000 times recommended!

  • The price for the offered ports and the excellent ham, which can be ordered to do so, it is worth a visit.
