Although it is not within the "tour of fame of the cellars" in Vila Nova de Gaia, it is one of the most recommended. It is a basement of the early twentieth century. It has the particular aspect of presenting large cement decanters instead of wood, so it is not one of the most appealing.

However, it is the basement with the best Port wine from the ones thar are near the river. Their wines, are sold in the basement, are priced cheaply and it is recommended to buy as they will not be easy to find.

Price of the visit: Free, tasting included
Summer timetable: 10.00a.m to 20.00p.m every day
