Lisbon for Food and Wine Lovers

One day walking tour downtown Lisbon. We start visiting a Lisbon market, feeling the colors and the smells of this ancient trading place. Enjoy the variety of the fruits, flowers, meats and much more …. If feeling hungry, a nice stop will give you the opportunity to enjoy a “Cacau da Ribeira” (hot chocolate).

After a short walk, we arrive to the place where we are taking the wine course. Our Sommelier will tell you all about the Portuguese Denominations of Origin, the vines and the main Portuguese grape varieties; the harvest, the winemaking and aging process of the wines and also the taste technique for white and red wines.

It's almost 1p.m. It's lunch time and we suggest the grelhados no carvão (charcoal grilled) dishes on the Menu! After one “bica” (expresso coffee) we walk into the Baixa (Lisboa down town), stopping to visit traditional shops such as “garrafeiras” (wine shops) or “mercearias” (delicatessen). Portuguese monuments and sightseeing are included. We will stop once more for a “lanche” (afternoon snack), to enjoy some of the most famous Portuguese sweets with Green Tea from Azores… or perhaps a Moscatel wine? Relax for a while in this beautiful old town…

Around 7p.m. starts the second part of our wine course. Now, it is time to know all about Port Wine (history, region, winemaking process, stage and aging). We will learn which Ports to store in our cellar, how to decanter them and how to serve them. Choosing a Port Wine will never be the same again. After this , our Gourmet Dinner will take place. Don't worry you don't need a tie, just a lot of appetite!
