Many different types of Oporto to try accompanied with an expert explanation about the various nuances between them. Light cosy atmosphere, French inspired with friendly service and good prices. A 'must visit' even if you aren't a fan of Oporto wine. Hint: tell them about your preferences on wine, they'll surprise you :)

We stayed at The Guest House Douro right on the Douro River. Jaoa & Carmen sent us to Vinologia: La Maison des Portes. It's magical!! Located on the bottom floor of an old yellow building you might accidentally pass right by it is historic & intimate. Yes, you should visit the other side of the river & see all the... More

We spent a fantastic afternoon in Vinologia! Lots of excellent Ports from smaller producers and useful advise. We thus bought some bottles and it was promised that they will be shipped to us for which we paid an additional 40 EUR. One month, one phone call from our side and three emails (without any reply) later, we still wait for... More

An d these bottles was from those winemakers who want to make good port wine. All houses were one´s I´ve never heard, but still to taste -... More

This was our 2nd time to Vinologia. The French owner and the waitress, a young Portuguese woman, are both friendly, talktative and full of helpful suggestions for Porto and the surrounding areas. It's a comfortable little place, and a great place to take a break after a lot of walking. The 10 year dry Tawny was excellent. The selection of... More

Jean-Phillipe and the entire experience was superb. I found this little gem by accident after a long day of walking. It is 100% dedicated to local port. There were fascinating people there from all over the world-most were regulars who come a few times a year due to the experience and the high level of experience Jean-Phillipe and team have.... More

We stumbled accros this quality-looking port tasting establishment and decided to give it a try - and boy we were not disappointed! We had decided to go all out for what had caught our interest udring the obligatory winecellar tours; tawny and Ruby. You either choose the same type of port and the owner will bring you 5-6 different brands,... More

The girl that spoke to us about our tasting was very nice and knowledgeable, and told us that the ports they supplied were from smaller local port houses rather that the big mass suppliers. This was great as we got to sample ports which we knew we would not be able to get outside of Porto. We ended up staying... More

Located in the centre of Porto, a really warm, inviting setting to learn about port and choose a few bottles to take home. We sampled a 'flight' of Ruby ports, accompanied by chocolate. I've not previously been a fan, but these tasted great and we bought a bottle. Really atmospheric and a good way to spend an hour or two!

Great place, knowledgeable and friendly staff, even tolerated our kid behaving inappropriately before we could correct him. Tasted much better vintage ports over here than in any of the quintas. You can buy some bottles as well, readonable price for the quality offered.
