Lisbon Wine-Tasting Tour

Sample local vintages in Cheleiros and Bucelas

WITH
Joao's TEAM | about the guide

This wine tour is the ideal way to find out more about Portuguese wine, while exploring the beautiful countryside to the north of Lisbon. Combining history, wine knowledge and delicate flavors, this tour is a perfect introduction to the wine regions of Cheleiros and Bucelas. The village of Cheleiros is an old parish dating back to 1304, which was first settled by prehistoric communities and then by the Romans. In this historic village, you will have a chance to taste 6 local wines (and olive oil) made by a small local producer using traditional Portuguese grape varieties including the Jampal, a very rare grape type that was considered extinct in the Iberian peninsula. After enjoying the wine tasting you will go to the village of Mafra, located near the 19th baroque Palácio Nacional de Mafra, and visit a number of local villages such as Aldeia da Mata Velha on the way to the next winery in Bucelas. The Quinta da Murta is famous for its dry white wine produced from the Arinto grape, first introduced by the Romans over 2,000 years ago.

A German born in Portugal, I was raised in England, Spain and Germany before coming back to Portugal, my adopted country. Working in finance for 20 years allowed me to visit most of Portugal, and decide I wanted to live out my passion: travel. Passionate about the road and eager for new experiences and encounters, I like to get lost in a new place and find my way by making new friends and getting to know their culture. As I wanted to share my excitement for travel and discovery of remote places, I started to organise some trips for my friends, family and colleagues, focusing on the important things in life. The decision of changing career came then naturally so I created a little travel company showing the wild and unseen parts of Portugal. With my customized tours and trips, I try to give another image of Portugal, a beautiful and tolerant country opened to languages, cultures and religions, but with a strong identity and history. With my fantastic team of tour guides, I organise and polish up quality tours in Portugal, which focus on nature and culture, always far from crowded touristic paths. During my tours, you will stimulate your senses learning local tips and lifestyles: seeing wildlife, catching wild fish, going to fresh markets, eating in traditional restaurants, making your own jam, enjoying tasting liqueur and learning about its 450 years old recipe, as well as many more exclusive experiences. PS : my tours could also be guided by Paulo or Rodrigo.
