Wine lovers, you are on the right page.
VisitmyLisbon has worked long and hard to introduce the wines of the Lisbon region in an excellent way. This region is outlined in light pink and magenta on the national map opposite.
For us, it is impossible to taste a wine without understanding what is behind it, historically, personally, and at a price that is not fair.
The purpose of this page is to present you the way we built our visit with a tasting around local wines.
It is a tasting of the wines of the Lisbon region. It is totally different from the customised tours we normally offer. This tour is reserved for people over 18 years old, but minors and non-drinkers can of course come with us.
How to best introduce the wines of the Lisbon region ?
To this question, we have answered three topics :
From sparkling to sweet, we will go through different whites & reds while criss-crossing Lisbon. This 6-wine tasting is composed of one sparkling, two whites, two reds, and one sweet.
Over 2-3 km, historical anecdotes will mingle with the nectars tasted in a subtle and thoughtful way : 3 renowned wine merchants will offer the wines previously selected for tasting in a friendly setting.
Your guide is an urban farmer, biodynamic consultant and is involved in many wine projects in the Lisbon area.
To keep you on track, you will be given a tasting notebook with 3 parts :
Aimed at everyone, this Lisbon wine & food tour has the support of the producers and wine shops we visit.
As professional friends, they trust us to ensure an optimal presentation of their products.
We are not in the business of touting « THE » best wine tasting in Lisbon.
We strive to offer a well thought-out tasting in its preparation, content and continuity.
We want to offer a memorable & instructive experience, in a friendly atmosphere.
Exchange is the key word.
Your knowledge completes the visit and makes it more enjoyable !
If tasting Lisbon’s wines makes your mouth water, we also suggest that you extend the experience to the doors of the most prestigious Portuguese wine estates. Whether on the south or north bank of Lisbon, we offer you an exquisite programme where you will be received as a guest of choice by the owners.
On the menu: a tasting of 6 wines with generous tapas, a beautiful drive with our guide Sylvain through the unique landscapes of the Lisbon coast. Even children will be entertained !
The excursions are private and are organised according to your tastes and desires of discovery between either the Sintra or Arrabída serra.

To go further in your search, both geographically and personally, I recommend our Portuguese national wine tasting.
Wine in Portugal is a classic. From north to south, the terroirs express themselves through fantastic regional products and offer sublime wine/speciality tasting combinations…
Who hasn’t tasted the wines of Porto ? Vinhos verdes are also a popular classic… They almost steal the show from the already famous Douro wines. The Alentejo is not to be outdone in terms of notoriety.
These regions are the lighthouse in an ocean full of soft reflections (hips). These reflections are the wines of the Lisbon region (formerly Estremadura), the wines of the Dão, Tràs-os-Montes or the Algarve, Bairrada, or the Beiras.
It is in this second group of less famous wines that my favourites are found.
To help you find your way around, we have selected a range of great wines. In all these regions, some are famous for a particular type of wine. We have selected 8 wines that we think are a must.
This tasting takes place in four locations for a complete sensory journey !
