Lisboa wine demarcated area is a long, thin region running up beside the Atlantic. Wind is inevitably a strong feature beside the coast. Just a little way inland, however, a backbone of hill and mountain ranges offers some protection to many eastern parts of the Lisboa region. Thus, there´s the propensity for finding elegant whites on the coast side and top class reds, on the inland one.
You will get to see and feel:
Landscape – Wide stretches of sand and deep blue sea, fragrant orchards and large vineyards.
The region is distinguished by the great variety of wines and microclimates, always with the close influence of the Atlantic which gives origin to elegant, fresh, and very balanced wines, with great aging potential. This is also the region of the DOC “Light Wines of Lisbon”, with lower alcoholic content and Portugal’s only DOC – classified brandy – Aguardente Vínica – from Lourinhã.
Over more than 30 different types of native grape varietals can be found in Lisbon Wine Region. You will taste on the good company of the estate owners or winemakers the result of this fantastic variety of aromas and flavors.
More surprises? Yes of course; namely at lunch where you will have the opportunity to taste the Portuguese fish and seafood. In Europe, only Icelanders eat more fish than the Portuguese. Superstar chef Ferran Adria says seafood from Portugal’s Atlantic waters is the world’s best – and he’s Spanish. Enjoy your meal in the company of the Atlantic Ocean and say to yourself: life is good…
