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

the shop is small, but you can find a rich selection of porto there. We bought 3-4 bottles of different porto, and every(!!!) was excellent! Prices are the same or even lower than in other wine shops. Highly recommended!!!

The staff at Garrafeira were exceptional. They took the time to explain the port and wines without any of the bias we found at other places. They gave us a sample of the different varieties to help explain their point and were very easy to follow throughout. What's more; we liked two of the ports we tried and held our... More

My wife and I and another couple took a trip to Lisbon and Spain. We thought it would be a good idea to have some wine ordered and delivered to our hotel in Porto Portugal before we boarded our river cruise. This place had such great reviews I thought it was the perfect choice. The owner told me that I... More

It is a perfect place to buy any alcohol drinks! Nice service, polite and very friendly staff! In a magic way they now what specific type of wine and port every client needs! If you want to try not only mass market drinks, but also small local producers, you should go there and I am sure, you will enjoy!

I have a little knowledge regarding Port and was looking for advice regarding smaller producers. The gentleman I spoke with was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and focused on helping me find the best products for my tastes, and not necessarily the more expensive choices. If you like Port and want to learn more this undoubtedly the best place to go... More

Perfect shop with a perfect stuff. There is one of the best prices in the city. There is wide choice of the wines. It is easy to find very old Port wine or wine from the small producer.
