    “Um dia muito bem passado. ” Adoramos a excursão, o guia foi atencioso e muito simpático, sempre com muito entusiasmo e disponível para responder às nossas questões. Não conhecíamos bem o vinho Moscatél, mas ficamos fãs. Recomendo! Benjamim, 30 set 2021

    “Por terras de moscatel (só faltou o pão) ” O tour (visita à adega de favaios, prova, visita ao museu, almoço, visita ao lagar e sala da família na avessada) foi bom e correspondeu à expectativa do grupo.
    Teve alguns soluços (como não termos ido visitar as padarias ou o staff de sala não saber que eramos 6) mas no fim, correu tudo bem e foi um fim de manhã/almoço e início de tarde muito interessante.
