What people are saying about Pinhão

Gustavo Rossi exceeded all our expectations. His knowledge of the Douro Valley and his connections to the local producers was expansive. Everywhere we went, we were greeted like family and enjoyed VIP treatment. We definitively got his premium service. We highly recommend him. He is worth the price and will use his services in the future.
