When visiting the Douro area you can't miss the opportunity to buy Porto sweet wine or Douro wine.
There are several makes, and some of them are equally good. As in any other wine, price and taste will depend on year, being that Vintage are more expensive. You should avoid tourist shops and go to a wine cellar. You will probably get a better deal in wine cellars, concerning quality.
The Vintage House Hotel apart from wine also sells olive oil.

Café Veiga: Visit Café Veiga for the local craft on sale !!
Café Veiga is located on the main road that crosses Pinhão.
It's a simple place that provides drinks & snacks.
Since it's located right in front of Pinhão's rail station, I guess that at one point and due to the steady tourist traffic their owners decided to offer more than just drinks & snacks and evolved into a gift shop as well.
Visitors might well find in here their sought souvenirs. :-)
