This was my favorite tasting room in Vila Nova de Gaia. The grand room with multicolored fabric draped ceiling and barrel tables opens onto beautifully landscaped grounds. It feels very regal. There is also a great view of Porto from the outdoor area of the restaurant. We didn't eat at the restaurant, just had port tasting in the main tasting... More

It is not easy to decide which one of the many port distillery sites you want to visit. At the riverside you can see all the big billboards from Sandeman, Krohn`s, Ramos Pinto,…. In the end Taylor`s popped up, and it was not that difficult to find the location coming from the Dom Luis I-bridge. As we arrived, it seemed... More

Great little cellar with a pleasant outdoor garden - a sunny day, outside, enjoying the Port... An insightful tour by enthusiastic staff. Three tastings. And all for EUR 5. Great value.

A bit of a climb up the hill, but its definitely worth it - the views from the terrace are stunning. The tour is pretty good - quite informative. Their port is very nice too!

You need to climb the streets of Vila Nova de Gaia to reach this property and it may be tiring on a hot, summer day. When inside you can book a tour in a language of your choice. For 5 euros you get 3 glasses of port wine for tasting (one as a welcome drink and 2 glasses of other... More

Spent a few days in Porto after watching arsenal play in the champions league, so thought we would explore the distillery side of the river. After a short tour we were able to try a number of types, all of which were very nice and in plentiful quantity!

We arrived earlier to the wine tasting program, we've been offered already wine to taste until we are wainting for the english guide. The tour was interesting, and for 5 euros/ person i would go back anytime. The guide was professional and friendly.

The tour was short but sweet. It should be added that you should arrive 30 minutes before the tour begins to ensure that you have a place. It was a bit disappointing to have to wait an hour for the next tour when we arrived 10 minutes ahead of time (having been told reservations were not necessary). Altogether, a nice... More

It was pleasant & friendly. Worth every bit of 5e. The tour guide was friendly and kept it light & informative. Worth trying the Vintage port tasting. Although you get 3 different varieties with the tour. It was fabulous. A bit difficult to find off the beaten track.
