Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What an amazing place! Tucked into a hillside off a peaceful lane across a creek from the picturesque town of Silves, Quinta de Mata Mouros is a gem of a find. When you arrive at the closed gate, look up to the right for the chain attached to the ancient bell. Ring the bell, and Vanessa will open the gates for you. So fun! Vanessa is a treasure and showed us around the winery before taking us to their wonderful tasting room in a converted water mill.

The wines!!! This was the third winery we visited during our quick 2-day stay in the Algarve, and it was hands down the best! I almost don’t want anyone else to find out about it! Their Alvarinho is quite frankly exquisite. The Rośe is beautifully balanced with lovely fruit and acidity - a summertime porch pounder for sure! The red blend of Cab Sauv and Alicante Bouschet blew my mind and I cannot wait to lay some down for a couple of years, smoke a brisket, and share it with friends!

Obrigado Vanessa! We will be back!

This is our second visit to Convento do Paraiso, well worth booking a tour & tasting, and lovely additional of a ‘safari jeep’ ride to the vines. Our guide Vanessa was so lovely, a real asset to the winery. We saw the last of this years harvest being pressed, enjoyed lovely wine and tapas, and (of course) brought some very nice wine home! Thank you!

Vanessa gave us an in depth history of the local area, the convent and Mara Mouros winery. Very interesting with a bit of mystery. Great wines with great conversation!! Coming back next August to personally stomp the grapes 😊

A lovely tour! Vanessa was just lovely from booking to tour. Informative and knowledgeable. We walked among the vines in the vineyard and then saw the wine making process, followed by a lovely tasting with local sausage, cheese & bread. Highly recommended!

We were staying in Vilamoura and looking for a winery near by to take in a wine tasting. I came across this winery and it had great reviews and seemed like exactly what we were looking for so we booked a tasting! The communication back and forth was great, very informative and helpful.

We ended up spending almost two hours at this beautiful vineyard. The woman who conducted our tour/tasting (I wish I could remember her name) she was so lovely. She was well educated in the world of wine and gave us a great tour of the facilities, including the area where they still use their feet to squash the grapes! Then we went into this beautiful tasting room and tasted multiple wines, some of which weren’t bottled yet! The whole experience was really wonderful and the wine was delicious and well priced!

It is a little difficult to find (use the directions from their website not their Facebook page)

Highly recommend this winery!!!

A fascinating history is the back story to this Quinta plus their wines are pretty decent too; some of the best we found in Algarve. We were well looked after by Eleanora and Suzanna despite us turning up without an appointment, and who even took us up to the vineyards with lovely views across to Silves. They still use the treading pools to press / macerate many of their wines ! On the other hand they have the latest conical enox fermentation tanks. One interesting varietal they grow is Souson (aka Vinhao). We tasted seven from their range and the best of a good selection was their Euphoria branco.

Very interesting and instructive visit to one of the Algarve's (relatively) new wave of wineries. Well hosted by the the Wine Tourism manager, Vanessa, who spent well over an hour with the two of us on a tour of the vineyards as well as a tasting of the premium wines produced by Convento Do Paraiso. The terrific views back over the Rio Arade to Silves and north to the Monchique mountains would be sufficient reason to visit - the wines and the information on wine-making techniques and the Algarve wine industry generally further enhance the experience. A winery at an interesting stage of development with more land brought into use, new vines being planted, estate properties being renovated, and the visitor experience being improved. Seemed like a business on the up! Necessary to book ahead using the contact details on the website.

Web site said it was open on Friday (the 15th of April), but we could not raise anyone in the area for a wine tasting….so sad … had driven from Olhos d’Agua to visit this winery on purpose. No signage. No directions.

Dear Robert, We apologize for any inconvenience caused during your recent visit to Convento do Paraíso winery. We understand your frustration with finding our gates closed, despite our online information stating that we would be open at 14h00. We would like to clarify that while our gates are closed, there is an ancient bell located on the property that customers can ring to gain access, or alternatively, our phone number is available online for customers that book visits to call us and arrange for entry. We are sorry to hear that we did not receive a phone call from you to open the gate, as we would have been more than happy to welcome you to our winery. We would like to invite you to come back and visit us at another time, and we will ensure that you have a wonderful experience that meets your expectations. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you in the future. Best regards,

Visited here while staying near Silves. The winery is in the grounds of an old convent.

The wine tasting was interesting and some good wines (we brought some back with us). The tour guide was interesting and took us up to the vines and explained the processes to us which was a really great experience.

Well worth a visit.

This beautiful winery is conveniently located near by Silves in Algarve. You can walk from the city center (aprox. 15min). Amazing experience, delicious wines.
