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.

Went out to the winery to get a impression of good wines from the algarve. In this winery they are not good, they are.great. Fine white wines, even the grapes brought in, a lovely well made rose, but awesome reds. Could not try the Basic Red, as sold out, but liked the good cuvee. Well made, nice tannins. Took a... More

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

We all enjoyed our visit to this perfectly formed winery even in December it was still beautiful sunny weather and gave a taste of what it would be like in full... More

The second time we have been here, but this time we went for the tour as well as the tasting and tapas. Came here with my family, even the kids found it interesting - and it wasn't too long a tour for them. We really love the Oudelouca Red and have now ordered deliveries back to the UK on two... More

Visited this quaint, little vineyard in rural Algarve just north of Portimao. Beautiful November afternoon. We were the only two people for the tour (low season) and were received warmly by our young hostess. She was very knowledgeable and thorough about the estate and it's operation. She answered all of our questions readily. The tastings were fantastic and the wines... More
