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.
Tours of the facilities start every day at 11:30, 14:30 and 17:00 finishing with a tasting. They last for an hour or so and cost €16 per person for both tour and tasting. The tour alone costs €10 pp and the Introductory Tasting €10pp. There are other Reserve and Vintage port tastings available (see below).
Due to a high demand and to avoid over crowding we are limiting the size of the tour to 20 people. If you wish to reserve a place please call Alina in advance on +351 254 732254, we will take a credit card number and will have the right to charge €16 per person if there is a no show.
Additional personalised tours can be arranged with prior notice and a deluxe tasting can be arranged which includes the wines and ports from the standard tasting accompanied with a selection of local cold meats, cheeses, almonds and chocolate.
Each tour/tasting will have a choice of wines and ports to sample:
The Introductory tasting - €10 pp
La Rosa White wine 2015, Quinta de la Rosa Estate Red Wine 2015, Quinta de la Rosa Fine Tawny port, Quinta de la Rosa Finest Reserve port
Alternatively there is a Quinta de la Rosa Port only tasting - €15pp
Or a Wine only tasting including two Reserve wines - €15 pp - La Rosa White Wine 2015, Quinta de la Rosa Estate Red Wine 2015, Passagem Reserve Red Wine 2014, Quinta de la Rosa Reserve Wine 2014
We have a shop where people can drop in and taste and buy during opening hours. During high season we are open over weekends but always best to call beforehand to avoid disappointment.
You can finish your visit with a lunch or dinner. During the harvest (September/October) we invite you to make your reservations for dinner and to tread your own vintage. Please contact us for further details.
