  • What a fantastic experience. We came for a wine and we left with knowledge, experience and of course, a couple of bottles. You would expect the owners of a well established shop to care less about the visitors and buyers, but this is not the case here. We have received a great presentation about all the different types and gradations of port, about how the wine is made, how its stored, what's important to understand, how to read and what to notice on the bottle labels. We got a brief about the different producers and their history, we spent over 30 minutes just listening - we basically came when we know nothing and we left much more knowledgeable about what we drink and buy. And yes - the prices are more than fair and you are never rushed or pushed to buy this brand or another. Garrafeira do Carmo was not a shop, but a real experience for us.
  • Best Wine Shop in town. They had the best prices, are extremely knowledgeable and provide great and tailored service to adjust to you needs.
