    Wine tour in Douro Valley
    Absolutely recommend this tour. We started at 4;30 pm in the English tour group. The day was hot for May but bearable. Can’t imagine the heat would be like in the summer months. The pace was good and Emmanuel was an excellent tour guide.

    Good wine with perfect food and place
    Everything excellent! The Quinta is very beautiful, the winery visit is one of the best we had, room nicely decorated and cosy. One of the best parts was the dinner: everything simply delicious, all courses paired with perfect wine and for a fair price. The breakfast was also impeccable: lots of options in the buffet and a la cart, all included. The staff is careful and specially kind. It was the best place to celebrate our 25th anniversary.

    A must-see wine tour!
    Wonderful wine tour! Amazing history and thorough details on production and history of the Douro Valley. Our guide António Montezinho was fabulous 10/10. Gave us some awesome local restaurant recommendations and was hilarious - definitely made the tour for us!

When we arrived we were told 25E each for tour and tasting. Downside was pretentious. The guide was also a bit rough. It was striking that in times of Covid, although there was plenty of space in the tasting area, we were all seated less than six feet apart. I get they are well known but I do still think precautions are warranted. Perhaps that's just because I am older.

We went there without a reservation because there was any spot available for any experience. But at store, we talked with Emanuel that received us very gently. At the store, we taste the wines and Emanuel explained everything to us, about the 5 wines that we tasted any with lots of knowledge. We loved the experience. Even if you don’t have a reservation, go there and talk to him. We very recommend it.

Quinta do Vallado is one of the nicest hotels we have ever visited. The ambiance is amazing as are the rooms; food; wines; and staff. The Quinta is a peaceful place with all amenities one could ask for. Our only regret was that we only booked two nights. Many guests told us they stayed for a week. A special shout- out to Yvonne ( hope I spelled that right)at the front desk. She made us feel at welcome.

Really enjoyed the wine tasting tour. Very knowledgeable guide Ricardo made us feel so welcome and relaxed. His passion and interest for his work was apparent. Historic and authentic winery. Bought some port and wine afterward. Would recommend this beautiful venue.

I really enjoyed this wine tour and tasting. The site is beautiful, which unique architecture and beautiful views. The tour was informative and not too long. I'd love to return in October and watch the harvesting of grapes and processing of the wines. The wine tasting was excellent and they let us try other wines that were not on the menu.

We went up to Quinta do Vallado as we were interested in looking at Douro table wines. I import a lot of European wine into Australia, and we are interested in expanding into Portuguese wines. We did not want to do a full tour as we have been around a million vineyards and wineries, and also had limited time, so asked if we could just do a wine tasting. Despite there being numerous staff and the tasting room set up they said no. Their attitude was that if we did not do the tour we were not entitled to do a tasting (which we would have happily paid for if that was the problem). They told us the only thing we could do was buy wines by the glass (not really our preferred option at 11:30am!!). Even then when we asked for a list so we knew what to order they could not provide one, so it was a painful process even trying to buy a glass. When the wine finally arrived there was no information provided about the winery or the wines themselves. The staff were abrupt and seemed lazy, did not even clear our glasses or offer us another glass of wine once we had finished them, despite there being nobody else at the cellar door. In my opinion (as a manager of a winery myself) this place needs to be a lot more flexible, to welcome the guests that come and show an interest in their winery. You never know who your visitors might be.

On a positive side the views are rather lovely. I guess you need to do the tour to get the best out of the place, otherwise they are not interested in you.

We visited during opening hours expected at least a tasting. But they told us this is only possible with a tour. Tours are twice a day in english and twice in portugese. So don't show up there without tour booking! The shop on its own is small and not worth a visit.

We went to this to have lunch in May/14.
The wine store was closed.
The restaurant was closed.
Do not go there in the middle of the year.
