This port house features a very informative self-guided audio tour that takes you through the cellars and many exhibits which thoroughly explain the process of making port. Depending upon how much you wish to read, the tour takes approximately 1 and a half hours. It...More

The best place in Vila Nova where you can taste wines. The place is amazing, atop the hill with a breathtaking view of Porto. Peacocks in the courtyard and beautifull plants with flowers complete the set.

Hello, We didn't book in advance, we just turned up and it was pretty quiet (about 3pm on a weekday). The tour is by audio guide and that's included in the price, provided to you when you pay.
