A small shop but with a very good selection in port of many types, prices and ages. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful staff. Only warning; you might buy more than intended. And they also ship internationally.

Very wide variety of port wines and others in very good price. The service is very helpful and they can recommend something really good not necessarily too much expensive. You can also taste some wine and have your purchased bottles packed in foil and carton in case you would like to transport some wine in your luggage:)

Small store with great selection, friendly and helpful staff and good pricing. We got the 30 year old tawny 35 euro's cheaper then at the Port House itself......

You get a good and attentive service at Carmo, and they also serve you a little tasting if you want. Prices are okay.

Wine choice is indeed extremely limited if compared with other shops in town and it is a good choice only if one does not really look for specific products

Went in a bit nervous as to which bottle of port to buy, given the huge variety on offer. Shouldn't have worried – the service from the gentleman was incredible, polite and extremely helpful. He spoke great English and let us try several ports until we found one that suited both us and someone we were buying a gift for.... More

I know very little about Wine, but in this wonderful shop I found the guidance I needed. They knew exactly what questions to ask to find out my taste and wishes. I tasted the Port Wine they recommended and then I could choose what to buy. It was a really nice experience and I was both excited and happy when... More

We were determined to buy port wine from Porto but hadn't done any research about the shops. We accidentally walked into this small shop and were amazed. The staff was very knowledgable and friendly, one of which with excellent English. We don't know much about port wine so we started with figuring out our taste. We immediately got great recommendations... More

I came across the this web site with its recommendation to purchase port wines at Garrafeira do Carmo. Once in Porto, we had taken a couple of tours and tasted enough to know what we... More
