Without a doubt the view from the tasting room is one of the most impressive in the area. It is situated on the top of one of the peaks of the valley with a gorgeous view of the river and surrounding vineyards. You can sit in cozy chairs with 30+ feet floor to ceiling glass windows if you don't care... More

While the tour was very well done and the building is very nice the port reminds me of medicine. The white was not cold at all so my suggestion is when there are only 2 people don't pour it until they sit. Also way too many little flying things there are natural items that can be used to keep them... More

We visited this winery for the view and ambience. The surprise was great wine by the glass with no tour.

Went for just the tasting room. Might not be kosher to skip the tour if it were busier but I heard from other reviews the tour wasn't good. The drive up was amazing as are the views. Great place to try some port at the source.

While the tour was cheap and we enjoyed the wine and the view from the factory's balcony, the tour itself wasn't good. It was incredibly short and the guide explained very little about the wine - for example, she only mentioned the types of different port wines without actually explaining the differences between them. If we haven't been through a... More

Very nice winery with a excellent view in the traditional port wine area. The introduction tour with wine tasting is quite well worthy. Personally we think now is the best time to visit, by avoiding the peak season and hot weather, also with the chance seeing grapes being hand picked in the valley.

Beautiful spot overlooking the Douro river near pinhao. We joined the English tour of the winery led by a guide dressed as The Don. Quite a short tour but fairly informative followed by two port tastings - one white, one ruby - in room overlooking the river.

Very nice visit, good guide and nice tasting. The winery is very interesting, and the explanations really help understand the Douro Porto connection. Our guide was very attentive to the group. The views of the tasting room are quite amazing and impressive

Very nice Quinta with absolutely stunning views. The Sandeman group has the money to do things well! Definitely worth the visit and their table wines and ports are all very good.
