  • Tour of the winery and tasting my 10 euros and three glasses. The port wine tasting a bit much if you like the taste of dry kindling for the month a little inside may be right, but for the price not bad tour.

  • Interesting visit to a winery typical of Porto, in concrete is the most ancient and you explain all the process of development and technical of the came of Porto. Have excursions guided in English and Portuguese, but had the luck of that the boy that is in charge that day of the excursion wise Spanish and us it explained very well in our language. Include you a test of three types of port wine, and after the visit leave you all the time want to take quiet your wines. Price 10 euros
