Four of us went for a tasting tour at Qunita da Tor on a slightly chilly but bright sunshine day to celebrate my brother's birthday. We started with a very interesting technical tour of the facilities and introduction to the whole wine making process along with a history of the winery. Great selection of wines to taste as we sat in the brilliant sunshine, accompanied with charcuterie and cheese plates. We actually spent a couple of hours there. No one was rushing us at all. An outstanding experience overall and recommended to all.

This was such a fun experience! The elevator, elevator shaft, tunnels, equipment and the rock! So cool to have art in the underground!

Interesting tour, only for our 5 man group. The guide spoke very understandable English

Excellent selection wines! Ended up taking 2 bottles home. Definitely recommend

Very pleasant visit well commented in French which was very pleasant.
