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

Excellent wine, friendly staff, comparable to California wineries but smaller. Well off the beaten path but worth it.

Very friendly and informal tour. Wine was delicious. We had tapas with the wine tasting which was good. No pressure to buy but we did anyway. Would recommend.

Little bit tricky to find, but it's worth visiting. This winery is realy very small one, some kind of family wineyard. Very lovely place, modern winery, good hosts. Price is a plus, couse you can take a look at the entire process in a very compact place and with confident comments from Fatima or Tatiana. We tasted 5 wines. All... More

My wife and I had a great time. We arrived in late afternoon. Fatima greeted us openly and gave us a brief tour of their wine operations. After which we sampled 5 of their wines and ended up taking some wine with us. Note, if using google driving directions do not listen to the map application telling you to take... More

A trip to Quinta do Frances is recommended. This is a small family vineyard in the hills above Portimao and Alvor, near Silvas, and easily loacted off the N124. The tour itself takes under an hour but combined with a tapas lunch of cheeses and meats, and samples of their wines, it makes for a very enjoyable late lunch into... More
