We had a knowledgeable guide who walked us through their onsite cellars and explained the port process from grape to bottle. It included an 8 minute video and ended with tasting of white and red port all for 6 Euros.

This producer is huge. The grounds were lovely, very nice tour and explanations of the wine making process. Our guide had a great sense of humor. We tasted a white and red wine. I would have preferred to taste the port.
