I enjoyed the 25 min winery tour with a lot of great insights about port wine, production, aging etc. The Fado music was nice during the wine tasting.

Wonderful tour. A tour guide Isabelle was sensational. We got the premium tasting package (definitely worth it for just €5 more) and the pours were very generous.
