Wine visits

La Rosa's wine visit

La Rosa is unusual as we are able show the whole port and wine making process from the vineyard to the final bottle.  Most port houses make their port in the Douro but store and bottle it in Vila Nova da Gaia, in Porto.  We do everything in the Douro.  Not only that, but we are able show both wine and port making processes side by side.

The tour of the facilities starts every day at 11.00am and at 4pm and finishes with a tasting.  It lasts for an hour or so and costs €10 per person.

Due to a high demand for this tour and to avoid over crowding we are limiting the size of the tour to 24 people. If you wish to reserve a place on the tour please call Alina in advance on  +351 254 732254, we will take a credit card number and will have the right to charge €10 per person if there is a no show.

If the tour at 11.00am is full we will try and arrange an additional tour at 11.30am subject to the number of people requesting the tour and availability of staff at La Rosa

Additional personalised tours can be arranged with prior notice and a deluxe tasting can be arranged which includes the wines and ports listed below accompanied with a selection of local cold meats, cheeses, almonds and chocolate - price €20 per person
