An exceptional visitor attraction comprising vineyards, winery and superb shaded gardens containing many exotic plants and trees, all for the princely sum of 5 euros admission. The pace of life here is so leisurely that the visitor to this northern part of Portugal could be forgiven for losing half a day, just sampling the excellent green wines and resting in... More

The park was beautiful and worth the visit. The folks working there need a few days off as they weren't very thrilled about having to do their jobs...or maybe they need new management to change the atmosphere? Shame as it is a great estate, just lacked the positive attitude one would expect from such a fabulous location.

This is a nice change from normal sightseeing walking round shady gardens on a hot day. The tasting was of a white and a rose, both generous glasses, and a good plate of cheese. My only comment would be that it would have been better to halve the size of the white and rose and then be able to taste... More

This is one of the best value attractions I have ever visited. 5 euros per person for guided tour or great gardens and it includes a very generous wine tasting session.

On an uncharacteristically hot day for June in North Portugal, this was a welcome oasis. It was the start of hydrangea season, and some of the blossoms were immense. The garden is very well designed, but what caught everyone's eye was a newborn goat--the smallest I've ever seen. The wine was good enough to make me resolve to track some... More

This winery set in a beautiful garden with picturesque buildings was a real find. We had our own very friendly and informative guide and we got to hear the story of the family and taste delicious wines. The shop had a great selection of products as well.

Beautiful location with extensive gardens where you can sample the local wines, one of which, Grinalda, is kosher. In addition to brandy, they also offer vihno verde, "green wine," which is a young white wine that is very fruity. Ask for Christina for a wonderful guide.

Quinta da Aveieda is an old English garden, full of magnificent trees, flowers and interesting buildings. Local wine sampling after the tour - with home made cheese and crackers. We had lunch before the tour at Casa do Feitor in Penafiel. It was an excellent meal, cooked by the hostess and served by her daughter, with Vino Verde accompanying the... More

This family-owned estate in the countryside about a half-hour outside of Porto is known for two things: its beautiful gardens and the wine produced there, a white variety called "vinho verde". While the gardens are indeed charming, they are in themselves not worth the trip out to the estate and the visit: typical of many 19th century high bourgeois and... More
