  • A little more of the history of the wine of the well-told port, and we're buying wine bottles. Very good

  • The winery has a difficult access, the guides are not friendly. If you want to pay a visit, go to Calem, more beautiful, more professional and located facing the river.

  • We chose the Premiun package and I recommend it! Tasting of 4 quality portos with one offered by our companion. Given the language, we had a private presentation of four people!! We were treated like queens. In addition, this package entitles you to visit their museum near the docks with another tasting! Quality unbeatable price, this is the oldest port house and it is worth a visit!!

  • Overall I enjoyed the tour and had a nice tour guide - however enduring the long and boring video at the start was hard work - it is not well produced and needs to be re done - films should tell a story, be engaging, and Informative - this video did some of the latter but certainly not the first two unfortunately!
  • I had a wonderful time visiting Real Companhia Velha in Vila Nova De Gaia in Portugal as I got a chance to learn about the history of port wine and find out more about how the wine is actually produced. I enjoyed the tour of the facility from start to finish and learned a lot about wine productions and got a chance to look around and climb on the wine barrels from different years the wine was from. I could feel the history of the wine and now have a greater appreciation for all that it takes to go from the barrel to the bottle to the glass. The highlight is the tasting session at the end of the tour as you get to taste some of the best port wine there is. This was a memorable visit and I thoroughly enjoyed myself and look forward to being able to return here in the future.
  • I had the opportunity to learn some new stuff about Porto whine and it was amazing!
  • Susana and I visited Real Companhia Velha in Porto and were very impressed through our experience. This is one of the oldest Port Wine manufacturers in Portugal. A little more out of the way than the other companies in Porto but well worth the effort in travelling the distance. Barbara was a fantastic host and we loved her passion for Portugese history and working for Real Companhia Velha. The tasting was extra special with a well appointed tasting room and personal and detailed explanations of the products from Barbara. Choose this one over the others. We are glad we did. 5 star - thank you for an amazing day.
  • We did enjoy the visit. The guide Barbara spoke perfect English. The tour lasts around 30mins, start with a introduction video, followed by walk-around in the cellar, and ended with two small glasses of wine. Definitely understand more of the Porto wine.
