Yesterday me and my partner visited the Quinta dos Vales Wine Estate for a wine tasting. The guide was very knowledgeable on the subject and after an elaborate introduction to how vineyards work and how they try to distinguish themselves, we were shown every step of the process in making wine. It was very interesting to see and hear how all the machines and tanks operate and after a walk along the machinery we continued downstairs to the cellar where the oak wooden barrels are stored. Once again we were explained in detail how storing of wine works, how the barrels come into play and how interested parties can order their own custom made wines (if you're happy to buy 500+ bottles) After the tour we continued with the most important part, the tasting! We sampled a rose, white and two red wines, the latter two very different from each other. During the tasting freshly baked bread is served with olive oil and glasses of water to reset your taste buds. Overall a great experience

This was our favourite day of the holiday!!. Truly a wonderful well thought out day, both winery’s were so lovely but also a bit different from each other which really enhanced the day, Paulo (if I remember rightly?) at Paxa wine was such a lovely guide and the wine was amazing. We then stopped in Silves for 2 hours to have some lunch and look round at the castle (entrance ~€3 each) which was lovely we could have spent at least 3 hours honestly. Then to the last winery which was amazing also. The star of the day though was João who was the most amazing guide and really made this trip so fantastic. It was just me and my partner and another couple on the trip so it felt so relaxed and personal. We had an amazing time couldnt recommend more!

Excellent experience from start to finish! Our host Lucia was knowledgeable and friendly! Great information about Portuguese wines and the wine Food pairing was delicious! This is a must for your visit!

Nice ambiance. Good food and of course good wine. And if you're lucky very nice table guests.

Brilliant wine, brilliant guide and beautiful setting!
