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.

Stopped in twice with my wife during a recent trip to Porto, and enjoyed it immensely both times. Shared several flights of ports to taste. Each flight was customized based on our previous tastes and likes/dislikes. Best part was being able to purchase bottles of the wines we liked to take with us.

We happened to go to Vinologia by accident...We dropped by in the afternoon, had a look at the menu and finally went back after dinner to have a nice tasting. My husband and I paid to taste 6 differents kinds of port accompanied with cheese, but we ended up tasting a lot more. On top of that, the owner gave... More

We went to this place after someone recommended it to us in Lisbon. It's a good place to learn about Port and try all kind of ports from small independent producers. The staff is friendly and helpful. He really wanted us to find bottles we really liked. You can even buy your port here at very good prices. We bought... More
