“Try Taylor's or Croft”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Taylor's is reputed to have the best tour (closed when we got there); Croft is the oldest port house there is. Both are free, and you get samples (a Ruby Reserva in case of the latter). Sandeman, by the river, is not free, but apparently worth it, too.

“Quiet surroundings, great view and great ports”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

The Solar Vinho do Porto is not the easiest place to go to in Porto (as usual, getting somewhere in Porto requires steep walks up and down).

But it is really worth it. Located in a tranquil garden, with a great view over the Duoro river. The service was so-so - a bit too formal for my taste.

Still, I found the combination of a nice quiet garden, a great view across the river and a great selection of ports hard to beat.

“Romantic Spot”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

Along with the Romantic Museum, just next to the Cristal Palace, it is a fundamental place to know Oporto and its marriage to the Douro River
