    Exploring Lisbon’s Wine Country

    After you’ve sipped and savored a few new favorites in our restaurants, get out to explore the wineries in and around Torres Vedras. Wines here capture the unique characteristics of the Lisbon Region which was once known as Estremadura. It runs alongside the wind-swept Atlantic Ocean and stretches inland to the DOC regions of Torres Vedras, Óbidos, and Alenquer, where some of the region's leading wineries are located.

    Famous for its traditional whites and easy drinking reds, this picturesque countryside west and north of Lisbon boasts a total of nine DOC regions growing indigenous and international grapes, including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Cabernet. Many of the region's wineries are open to the public for tours and tastings, including Torres Vedras' stunningly architectural Adega Mãe and the award-winning Casa Santos Lima, which is said to be the largest producer of “Vinho Regional Lisboa” and “DOC Alenquer.”
