Quinta do Panascal has been open to the public since 1992, one of the first to be so in the Douro valley region.
Panascal's educational audio-tour allows guests to wander independently through vineyards dramatically situated atop rolling hills overlooking Távora River. The audio-tour also includes the "lagares" (traditional granite tanks) on a 30 minute walking experience.
This self-guided audio-tour allows visitors in their own time to visit the vineyards and is available in 9 languages - Portuguese, English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, Danish and Japanese. In the visitor's room, which has a superb view of the Távora valley, guests will taste three Fonseca's Ports: Siroco (extra dry white Port), BIN nº27 and Tawny 10 year old - Price per person: €5
Sala -de -visitas -PanascalOur visitors' centre also offers a variety of Ports by the glass including old Tawnies and the first fully certified organic Port so you can discover the diversity of Port Wine. You can also ask for a refreshing "Siroptimo" (Siroco and tonic) or, should you prefer, reserve a tailor-made tasting including some excellent Fonseca Vintages.
During the grape-harvesting season, visitors can enjoy the unique experience of watching grape treading in the "lagares", where Fonseca Port wine is still produced in the traditional way.
We also have a small wine shop where the full range of Fonseca's Ports may be purchased, as well as an outstanding organic olive oil.
