This is a very small museum and vineyard. It's interesting to see how they grow some vines on the ground on top of the volcanic rocks. Bottles of wine are for sale but are a bit pricey.

We dropped by the wine museum on a whim and were so glad we did! It was lovely to see the traditional wine-making equipment and the huge barrels. Our host was kind and friendly, even gifting me with a camellia bloom as we sampled the...More

Very sparse with a few items and a small taste of the wares. The proprietor lady, very nice, of course, couldn't get rid of our group quickly enough when we rushed to get in just under the closing time.

This is a short guided tour but very interesting. The guide was bilingual and the tour only took about 20-30 minutes. They allow you to taste some of their wines which are nice and you can purchase them to bring home. The history of the...More

It's really neat if you want to see how the wine is grown and made, and learn about the history of wine making in the Azores. They also sell some wine that they make from their vineyards to tourists and will let you tastes whatever...More

Historical preservation is so precious when it’s done by local residents. Our tour guide was a lovely older lady who had many stories and facts related to wine, whaling, Portuguese history and the artifacts to go with it. We were greeted with a powerfully sweet...More

While not massive, this place was quaint and real. We enjoyed speaking with the docents and never before have I ever been compelled to read every single one of the exhibit placards. Such great information! I enjoyed the tasting after and was given the most...More

Great place to visit! Wine is exceptional and the grounds are pretty. This place is worth the visit. This winery is run by 5th generation family.

If you know little about wine making, visit here. While the place is small, it is historic and provides a good overview of wine making on the Azores. Also, the wines are nice and you can buy some here.
