Lovely demonstration gardens

Informative museum, very appealing demonstration gardens. Wine tasting (fairly expensive) of the products of this famous vineyard.

This is a mid-sized museum/gift shop that shows how wine is made in Terceira. If you like wine, this is a great stop; if not, then it is mildly interesting. The staff wasn't terribly helpful, but I did receive a flower from the gentleman behind the counter when I was tasting one of wines. For me, it was a somewhat... More

My friend and I rented a car and drove around the island making sure to stop at the museum. As we got there a larger group of people was finishing up. After they left, the woman who works there took us on a super quick tour around the museum grounds. She showed us the stones that they grow grapes out... More

If you like Portuguese wine, go to the museum. You will get free samples. The vineyards are very unusual, they root on rooks not on soil. The wine has a smoky taste to it.

A visit to this museum was part of our full day bus tour with Azores Getaway. Beautiful grounds which I enjoyed more than the museum. They produce only White wine grapes here on Terceira. We were able to taste their dessert wine made from their Marina grapes. It was a smooth dessert wine.

Small museum but full of history. We were welcomed by the family Brum and talked about the wine history but also about Terceira!

As part of an island tour we were lucky to get a look at the old winery and enjoy a tasting. To see that the vines were grown in very small plots directly on the ground surrounded by the black volcanic stone to help keep them warm in the night was interesting. The old distillery for making the grappa was... More

Super enthusiasm from owner and a good effort for something private. Wine tasting ok but keep expectations low. It's a small place with lots of history
