Excellent Wine Store with Amazing Service
Aug 2021 • Family
An excellent friendly wine store. Prices are very reasonable and much lower than buying directly from vineyards. Jorge spent 20 minutes with me helping me select 6 bottles to carry back with me. Additionally, let me try samples of port wine, which I also added to the purchase. As others have pointed out shipping wines to the US is expensive, but given price for quality of Portuguese wines, it may still be worth it.

Amazing service and selection
Sep 2020
We visited their shop and we talked to Jorge. He was super helpful and kind and we finished with a super selection of wines. the express post service was extremely fast. I highly recommend you to visit this ship if you are a wine lover , and you want to find wines from smaller and less commercial wineries, nice Portos, etc

Must do if buying wine!!!
Jun 2020 • Couples
Went here for a look and left with couple of bottles. First day we bought few small little sample bottles after the recommedation of an owner.

After trying those we came back for "big Guns". Luckily our friend recommended us this place to go to.

Will be coming back next time and as promised we will bring a couple of bottles from our place.

Greetings from Slovenia!!

Amazing port shop
Feb 2020 • Couples
We found this port shop following other reviews a few years ago and it was absolutely amazing. This was then a must do on our latest visit. Jorge has a fantastic knowledge of Portuguese wines and port In particularly, he is completely fluent in English. We bought wines during our stay, he made some great recommendations for us to bring home. As we have drunk them all during lockdown we went online to order more to be delivered to the UK. It was fantastically easy. Jorge dispatched them the next day and they were here within the week. We will be using this service again... and again. If you are in Porto we strongly reccomend a visit. If you love port wine these are the people t speak to.

Very kind staff, great selection and the best prices in town
Feb 2020
We went there to buy an inexpensive bottle of Port and were extremely well received by all of the staff, especially Antonio who gave us an entire lesson on Port Wine varieties as well as great recommendations according to our budget. He also offered us three different wines to taste so we could get a better idea of what we were looking for. The prices are truly better than any other place in town, so this place is a must if you want to buy Port wine or any wine really. He even showed us the best route to take for our road trip along the Douro river, which was extremely helpful! Would rate 6 stars if possible.

Great place to buy wine
Nov 2019
Great Place to buy good wine and everyone in the store have good knowledge of wines, you just need to to tell the what do you like and they will you the exactly what you like. Plus they will box everything so you can take it to your country.

Best port store in the world??
Nov 2019
OMG - Jorge was amazing. He spent time with me talking about what types of port I like and what I was looking for. He had me taste different tawny (10 yr, 20 yr) port and vintage ports to see the difference before I bought them. The prices in the store ARE MUCH CHEAPER than buying the port directly from the port lodges when you go on a tour or tasting. The only issue is shipping the port to the US - the shipping and customs charges are very high - For 6 bottles that I bought (and put in my checked luggage), I would have doubled the price just for shipping. Great prices and both big and small port houses. If you like port - you can't miss this store!

Amazing shop
Sep 2019 • Solo
This is absolutely the place to be if you want some decent advice and taste Port. The place is run by truly Port aficionados. I had a talk about Port with the guy while enjoying a 20 yo tawny. In the end I've got my eye on a 22 yo colheita. Not just another Port shop!

Knowledge, advice and service
Jul 2019
The staff really give all they’ve got to help you find the wines you’re looking for – and a few you didn’t know you were looking for. Some open bottles for tasting, and even if you don’t pick those wines it gives you a good reverence point for further discussions with the staff. After you decide they help you pack – as good as bullet proof, I would say :-) OK, I suspect all this comes with a price, because when I compare what I payed with other merchants it was not a bargain. On the other hand, in stores where they compete with rock-bottom prices you don’t get any service (in one store they did not even say hello) so there you need to know exactly what to buy. This is for those who, like us, need good advice. All in all a great experience.

Friendly and helpful staff!
Jul 2019 • Business
During my walk around Porto districts, I passed by “Garrafeira do Carmo” by chance. Nevertheless, since there was quite full of people I entered the store just to have a look...Finally, I left from the store with some bottles of nice local wines. Staff was really helpful and very friendly!
P.S: From a small sample I had in comparison with other relevant stores, prices might be cheaper in “Garrafeira do Carmo”.
