Overview

Built by a family of winemakers from the Douro, in 1751, Ferreira possessed a rich tradition and a prominent role in the history of Porto Wine. Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira contributed significantly to the consolidation of the brand. A legendary woman with a unique personality, who became a myth and a symbol of strength, facing the adversities of nineteenth-century Douro. Ferreira Cellars invite you to discover a brand over 250 years old, a symbol of the highest quality that encapsulates Portugal's heart and soul.

We had been with the german tour which was great! You get a quick look into the history and making of the Port Wine. With free tasting of two different Ports. After that you will definitely want to know and tast more.

We booked the private tour with 5 tastings. The tour was interesting, and the guide knowledge, so now have a much better idea of the process and different type. However, after five reasonable tots of Port, everything looks good.

An interesting tour and tasting. There is a small museum. Later we bought a bottle of port duty free.

We choose this tour, because it was recommended to us, as the one that actually gave a history of the industry and the family company. We did not have a reservation, but were put into the next English tour, which was only 45 min. wait,...More

This was a good port tour. We had our first port tour 22 years ago, and then again a few days go at Quinta do Tedo in the Douro Valley (i.e. not at the cellars like here, but in production country). These two tours were...More

We ended up here literally hours before re we had to fly home and did the tour and tasting. A really interesting tour and a port tasting is a must if you are in Porto.

I'm not a port drinker, but thought I should try the good stuff in its birthplace. We chose to take the Ferreira tour because we had heard it was the oldest remaining Portuguese owned port house, dating back to 1751, so we thought that we...More

We took the French tour and it took about 40 minutes. Fun and entertaining, despite our limited proficiency in French. Ended the tour with a tasting of 2 sorts of wine. Worth the fee of 10 EUR but don't expect a cliffhanger.

30min tour is always nice, and 2 small glasses of port are always nice. Then to enter the shop....only very few type of ports could be bought: you can avoid walking to the end and visit Cálem in stead.

Hi KJ. As Pawel said, not sure where you're leaving from. We got Ubers between Porto airport and the old town, which were easily booked through the app and cost less than €20 each way. The port cellars are all across the... More
