As others have said, there is a fair bit of 'other activities' before the wine part, but host is excellent, and very flexible in time. Very passionate about their business, so I would recommend generally, and especially, if you want to learn a little bit more about the area. The information on cork trees was amazing....who knew?

Wonderful morning trip to a small family owned vineyard. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. There was a stop over to see cork trees and learn about them and a short but interesting visit to Silves to view the castle and cathedral. The wine tasting was great with a plate of cheeses and antipasti provided.

We went on this tour with a group of 4 & one additional girl joined our van. We were picked up at 230, however the wine drinking/ Winery tour didn’t start until 430. We did get to have some wonderful information passed to us about the history of Portugal and we were able to see the last standing castle. Our guide Juao was great, very engaging and funny! We stopped off at the castle & were able to explore for an hour. From there we made our way to the winery. We stopped off at PAXA wines, the tasting room in the Winery was beautiful, and the host, Nidia was wonderful. The wine was very delicious of course! Overall it was a great day out. Again, the Portuguese hospitality was amazing! Juao dropped us off at our dinner reservation instead of our original pick up spot & gave us good recommendations for restaurants. Personally I wish we had booked the longer tour to go to several wineries. But overall was a great day out!
