An emersive and personalised vineyard experience

From the moment you arrive it is clear that this is no ordinary wine-tasting tour. Rafael welcomes you to the family home with open arms and a smile. He takes you for a brief stroll around the vineyards and gives both a history of the company and some great insights into the growing and production processes. At no point does it feel like scripted patter, and his passion is evident.
Then back into the family home, where you are provided with great food and a fun tasting experience which feels like you're with a close personal friend.
Rafael offers great insights into food and wine pairings and isn't at all technical or condescending. You'll come away feeling like you'll always be welcome back, and there is no hard-sell of the produce. The wines themselves are of really high quality, and have been added my import list!..
The tastings at other quintas felt more sterile in comparison.
This is not a place to miss!!

Amazing!! So happy read this words!! Thank you and see you next time!!

Great wine tasting

We had a wonderful time with Raffaela at his vineyard. We were shown around the vineyard, learnt about the different ways the vines are grown and a bit about wine in the Douro region.

The tasting was brilliant - we tasted 4 different wines and there was great bread, cheese and olive oil - grown at the vineyard - to go with it.

A fabulous first experience of Douro - I would definitely go back!

Amazing, so glad to read your words!! Thank you for your visit!! See you soon

Excecllent experience

Rafael explained to us not only on the farm but also Portuguese wine marketing, which we enjoyed. Wine and food marriage was just perfect. the best baccallau croquettes we had in Portugal!

Perfect afternoon of wine, food and conversation

Our party of four just spent a wonderful afternoon with Rafael of Maõs e Irmãos. The quinta is a very short walk from the Rede train station and the setting is bucolic. We were provided very generous tastings of five of their wines - a rose, three whites and a red - served alongside cheeses, ham and prepared bites from their working farm.

Rafa (one of the "irmãos") was a very engaging host and forward-thinking winemaker who shared his visions of what they are trying to accomplish in both "the (overall) project" of the winery/farm and the individual wines. Really interesting and impossible not to swept up in his excitement for both.

A wonderful afternoon and highly recommended.

Perfect wine tasting

We arrived late to the winery (road construction) so we missed the tour of the grapevines. The owner Rafael and his staff were extremely gracious and seated us poolside with a beautiful spread of homemade food while we began our tasting. 5 impeccably crafted wines that we all enjoyed. A quick rest breathing the fresh air of the Douro river and the beautiful scenery and we were off! Do not miss this experience!
Don’t leave without trying the homemade chocolate mousse!

Best winery experience

We booked for a premium tasting but didn't expect the warm, engaging, family experience we received! Rafa was an amazing host, we had a tour of the winery and house, lots of information on the local area. We then joined Rafa at his kitchen table for tasting of 5 wines paired with the best food we've had in Portugal. Highly, highly recommend it. If you are visiting the Douro area you have to make sure you visit.
Make sure you book for the full lunch!

Our visit was unforgettable!!

Our visit was unforgettable! The owner was happy to welcome us even though there has been a problem with our reservation and he quickly found an alternative solution to do the wine tasting to us. At our arrival we were offered a cold glass of rosé by the swimming pool in the sun before we could move to the vineyard tour. We then continued with the wine tasting accompanied with a very abundant planche of homemade appetisers (cheese, jam, oil and chorizo) and some other main curses were offered to us. Food and wine was definitely the best we had in Portugal during our stay. The team made us feel welcomed in an amazing family owner property, with traditional vibes and great attentions !! Would definitely recommend and hope to be back again soon


Dopo l' ennesimo tour e Wine tasting turistico, abbiamo la fortuna di essere ospiti di Rafael, che oltretutto si rende disponibile ad incastrare la visita per venire incontro ai miei orari. Il risultato e' stata una esperienza unica e indimenticabile, nella sua azienda a conduzione familiare dedicata solo a me e mio marito. Oltre alla qualità dei prodotti,(vini, olio, salumi e formaggi di loro produzione assolutamente fantastici) mi porto a casa delle sensazioni positive e nella testa sicuramente che NE E' VALSA LA PENA. Dire che ha superato ogni aspettativa e' poco. Ci siamo sentiti accolti e coccolati. Rafael e' un padrone di casa genuino e vero. Non e' una cosa che capita tutti i giorni, e queste attività vanno incentivate. Bravi.

Über das Weingut und die Weine

In the mid-fifties of the last century, António Ribeiro and his wife Maria do Céu began their agricultural project with the acquisition of Quinta de S. Tiago, with an 18th century manor house, in the parish of Vila Marim, and Quinta da Portela. , in the parish of Barqueiros, close to the first Pombaline landmark that marks the beginning of the Douro Demarcated Region. Both in the municipality of Mesão Frio. In 1980, one of his daughters, Teresinha Ribeiro, married to Eduardo Miranda, began the work of reconverting the vineyards of the properties that, a few years later, through inheritance and purchase, would be their luck. With professions outside the agricultural scope, the strategy adopted was to sell the productions to the exporting houses and make small productions for local consumption and in bulk. His sons Roberto, Ricardo, Rafael and Rudolfo came, who progressively completed their academic training, with a majority focus on management and viticulture.
