Lisbon wine region has everything a wine explorer could want. On the north side you’ll find beautiful vineyards, amazing beaches, some of the best surfing spots in the world and breathtaking mountains. The vineyards on the Southern Europe’s Gulf Stream, are located right between the cold and strong winds of the Atlantic coast and the heat of inland Portugal. At night, the land is naturally irrigated by the mist and early morning fog and during the day it receives warmth from sunny afternoons.
You will get to see and feel:
The Portuguese in this region are masters at blending several grape varieties producing delicious wines with premium blends. Winemakers from all over the world dream of Lisboa’s blending expertise and many fly all the way here to taste and experience it. The wines are excellent to drink on their own and also to make easy food pairing choices that range from meat to fish, to seafood and even cheese dishes.
On this fantastic and glamorous experience you will experience a wine and food pairing program conducted by a famous winemaker of the region on 2 totally off the beaten path wineries. All his family comes from the wine sector and the passion about the wines he produces makes all the difference, together with the fact that these wines are literally a product of the region soil, climate and its people; wines that are authentic and unique. More than 300 years of tradition in wine, 2 beautiful old wineries and a mix of knowledge from the past with a clear focus on the future. Respecting and working with Nature and using native Portuguese grape varieties gives these fine wines a very unique character – incredible flavours, complex and sound taste and an elegance and freshness born in the Atlantic Ocean.
Then you will be taken to a coastline restaurant almost on the Atlantic Ocean to taste the home made food of the region. On our way to Lisbon we will proceed through the beautiful coastline and pass on Cascais; considered the Portuguese Riviera and once a beach Royal retreat for the Portuguese and European monarchy.
