If you are coming from Porto/Gaia you will have no doubt seen the large Sandeman cellar across the Douro River. This property is where the wines are produced and it is quite impressive. We did a couple different tastings and toured the facility. The views of the valley from the tasting room are not to be missed!

We were staying nearby and driving noticed the name which we recognised. We drove up the hill to the magnificent building on the hill surrounded by vineyard and fruit trees covered with oranges, rosemary covered with bees. We luckily were in time for an English tour which was due to start within a short time. We had to leave our... More

Otherwise you will not entirely enjoy the visit. The site is wonderful. Amazing views from the top. We took the tour which is no different from others but the Sandeman magic is in the air and makes the difference. From the big ones it is my favorite.

The tour was very informative and the port tasting was more than just the base level. They provided both a LBV 2011 and a 10 yr Tawney, not just a reserve. Be careful when you buy though as Port can only be brought back to the us in your luggage or mailed home for about 20euro per bottle!

A very nice place to visit, very professional, but extremely commercial tour guides - almost like being in the US. However, if the nature, view and a nice tasting is the goal - it is worth it.

A great thing to do when around. The space itself is truly amazing, especially the degustation room and the view from it. They have many options for visit - from 6 euros with visit and 2 drinks to 30+ euros, with special vines and food. We opted for the cheapest one and it was very nice! The guide (Ana) was... More

If you have a chance to go to the Alto Douro you should. The landscape is stunning. Many wineries are located in cliffs above the Douro River. Hire a your guide or rent a car and take your time here. It's beautiful.

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.
