Amazing place, nice people, very interesting story of wine production. This winery is a coop, using grapes from many very small vineyards throughout the region. Because of the proximity to the winds off the northern Atlantic, and the sand layer, very different viticulture techniques are used. The varietals used are also unique to the region. All in all a fascinating visit.

AS a wine lover, this was a very special visit for me. Rare and unusual sources of good wine are always interesting and this visit was very special. Everyone involved was great. This is a coop winery that serves 80% of the growers in the region. The adaptation to the specific conditions for grape growing blow my mind. I will always remember this visit and hope to return someday.

Small winery with the most unique wine, grown in the most unique way - horizontally and on sand. Need I say more?
We so enjoyed our wine tasting and small tour, we bought wine to be shipped to USA. Worth every penny.
If you have a chance, please go and try. You'll be happy you did.

Got here at 12.30 after hopping off our red bus. The shop wasn’t even open though it said on the sign it was open til 1pm. No-one around to ask-bit of a weird ghost town....basically got off a bus and then got back on a bus.. shame as we were looking forward to it.

We visited this winery at the end of September. It was 7 of us. We walked around, no organized tours were offered,
Wine Tasting cost 6.65 Euros or something like this, when bottle of wine costs: 2.05 Euros per bottle (white, rose and red); another white & red for 4.25 Euros per bottle and white for 13.90 and red for 14.60.

We just bought 6 different bottles and tasted at home with cheeses and cured meats. It was good wine for the price.

We stopped here as it seemed an interesting spot on our hop on hop off tour. There were wines on the display with details mentioned about each of them.

We asked the lady at the counter for a winery tour but she said it has to be booked in advance. She was willing to offer wine tasting but we simply had a look around the winery within 10 minutes and left.

We stopped here on the hop on hop off tour at first we got off and were a little apprehensive but we went in and thought it was a lovely quaint place. We tasted 2 wines which the lady talked through the aging process and different things. A lovely experience we spent almost an hour there and enjoyed it alot.

We were on the hop on/hop off bus tour that Tripadvisor can't seem to list or find...very similar to the Lisbon hop on/hop off bus tour.
One of the stops was for the Colares winery and I thought...hey, sounds interesting...let's get off. We were the only ones who go off.
We opened the door to the tasting room and we were greeted by a woman who I guess was managing the business for that Saturday. We kind of wandered around the tasting room when some folks showed up. The man opened the gate to the interior part of the winery...how did we know we could walk in there? The lady didn't tell us anything!
We finally stopped looking at the wines and I asked if we could taste the wines....this woman almost acted like getting a tasting from her was too much work. I ordered 2 tastings and she poured from 2 different bottles. The wines did not tast good at all, and there was no way I would even think of buying any of those wines.
When we finished tasting, I pulled out my credit card and she said cash only....well, luckily I had cast.
Bottom line, the place is not touristy and the lady needs a lesson in customer service.

As I recall, this is a local coop. The local vines managed to avoid the devastation of most of Europe's vines from the Phylloxera outbreak in the mid 19th century. We bought a couple of bottles to take to the hotel and enjoyed the cheap white more than the expensive red!
