Essential Lisbon Wine Tour

Portugal is one of our most requested regions for wine tours, thanks of course in part to the excellent wines being produced there but also because of the country’s reputation for being a safe and welcoming destination,  rich in its diversity, offering cosmopolitan cities and a fantastic climate with over 300 days of sunshine a year!  Portugal is home to a varied mix of cultures, heritage and landscapes which all come together in a small, yet unforgettably dynamic and welcoming country.

Whether you are in the wonderfully diverse and vibrant city of Lisbon tasting a Pastel de Nata, or in the peaceful and warm countryside of the Alentejo, surrounded by vineyards, cork trees and open fields, you will encounter and remember the warm smiles of the Portuguese people and the world renowned excellence of Portuguese gastronomy and wines.

On day one of your Lisbon wine tour you will be met at Lisbon airport and driven to your centrally located hotel.  After checking in at the hotel the remainder of the day will be free for you to enjoy at leisure. In the evening we have arranged a meal for you in a carefully selected restaurant, within easy walking distance of the hotel where you will enjoy traditional Portuguese cuisine.

Day two of your Essential Lisbon Wine Tour is dedicated to visiting wineries and tasting wines in the Lisbon Wine Region, just over an hour’s drive from the city.  Your driver will collect you at the hotel and drive you into the countryside to visit your first winery, a small wine estate aiming to create some of the most exciting wines in the region. The terroir here translates directly to the wine, you can taste the influence of  the hills and the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean.  Expect fresh wines with vibrant colours and flavours.

After a stop for lunch you will head to a different area in the wine region which will highlight the diversity the Lisbon wine region  can offer.  Here you will visit a boutique wine estate where they are creating wines with indigenous grape varieties, a wine project designed to contribute to local rural development as well as promoting the cultural heritage of the region.  Following your visit and tasting session your driver will return you to the hotel.

Relax and enjoy your evening at leisure
