This place has got a lot of character. It's a little tucked away winery, run by a family and helped out by neighbours and locals. Some very nice vineyards and the tour is full of information and the staff know what they're talking about. You get to the see the winery and storage etc. Great little tasting at the end... More

A young and very nicely presented vineyard. The docent was very nice and described the wine making process for us to follow. I recommend taking the time to visit the vineyard.

Excellent small winery with a awesome view onto the own vineyards and the beautiful landscape around. Tanja our guide for the small tour and the tasting afterwards was just perfect. With enthusiasm, huge knowledge and kindness she showed us around. Thank you Tanja! We enjoyed very much!

Went as a couple. If you are from the big city the peacefulness of the place will endear itself and impress you with the charm. We got to the place before one of the tour times and they have us a personal type just for the two of us.

A wonderful guide, Tania is a great and very knowledgable hostess and made our visit to the winery one of the highlights of our trip to the Algarve. The education and the history of the winery was interesting and informative. The wine was lovely and we had several bottles of Quinta Do Frances for dinner tonight.

The red wines were lovely. The rose was a pleasant surprise. The drive to and from this lovely valley is quite beautiful and the winery itself is pretty and... More

We visited here thanks to TripAdvisor, it was at least an hour's drive from where we were staying but we were very keen to buy from a local vineyard. Its out of the way but worth the trouble. We simply tasted all wines, and bought a number of them (we didn't do the tour I understand is available), had a... More
