General

Beyond being the country’s capital city, Lisbon is also one of the Portuguese wine regions. Stretching itself along the shores of the Atlantic up to 150km north, it crosses multiple towns which are known for their quality winemaking. 

Wine Tourism

Lisbon has a very special wine route: Colares, Bucelas and Carcavelos. The vines in Colares are unique as they are planted in sandy soils by the sea; a feature which is then reflected in the saline taste of its wines. Carcavelos is the country’s smallest sub-region, only 12 hectares (about 30 acres) of planted grapevines, home to one of the 4 fortified wines of Portugal. As for Bucelas, it is famous for its Arinto white grape variety, very much appreciated by great names in literature such as William Shakespeare and the Portuguese writer Eça de Queiroz.

From the fine whites of Torres Vedras to the clear spirits from Lourinhã and cherry liqueur in Óbidos, make sure you stop by the several restaurants in the region and don’t miss the traditional Portuguese stew or fresh seafood dishes.

Cities to visit: Lisbon, Sintra, Óbidos, and Leiria

Main grape varieties

Main white varieties: Arinto and Fernão Pires

Main red varieties: Castelão, Tinta-Miúda, 

Due to the influence of the Atlantic Ocean and the Montejunto mountain range, the wines of the Lisbon region are known for their freshness, minerality, and having the presence of lots of fruit.

Arinto is one of the most emblematic varieties with an excellent acidity and aging potential. Castelão can have several forms, from the full-bodied to a delicate red, but always very aromatic.

The Lisbon region is very varied. Between the fado in the Lisbon neighborhoods and the paths which lead to vineyards, there is a lot to taste!
