Fodor's Review

For a close look at the wine business, seek out the original headquarters of the José Maria da Fonseca Company; their Manor House and cellars stand on the main road through town. The intriguing tours talk about the long history of the winery and allow you to see all stages of production, including a peek into their dark and mysterious prized Moscatel cellars, where 200-plus year-old bottles are still aging gracefully. The tour takes around 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the size of the group, and at the end you are brought to their wine shop, where select products and be tasted and bought.
