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

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
