we are a couple looking to catch an early morning train from Porto to Pinhão and then visit a couple of Quintas (wineries) in one day. We are looking to mainly aim at the better table wine (vinho tinto) places and do two to three depending on how close they are. As we understand it, the best (easiest and cheapest) way to do this is to take a taxi. We will take the last train back to Porto that night.
We are looking for recommendations on
-the best Quintas to visit for their table wine;
-whether visiting a couple of Quintas and the village of Pinhão will sufficiently give us a sample of the famous views;
-whether the taxi is indeed the best option; and
-if anyone is travelling to the region over the next week and a half (25/6-5/7) who wants to share the taxi for the day to make it cheaper.
We understand that they are famous for their port, however we have already sampled a fair few vats and love our wine, so are ready to see what the region has to offer.
