PORTUGUESE WINES 101 | wine tasting

With a fun, hands-on approach in a beautifully restored house in one of Lisbon’s most charming neighborhoods, we’ll travel together through the main wine regions of Portugal – the grapes grown & style of wine made there. With so many indigenous grapes (more than 300!), there is a whole world of learning to do. In just two hours, you will learn what makes Portuguese wines so unique and taste fantastic wines from producers we love. It’s a fantastic way to start an evening out in Lisbon, and a great guide to choosing the right wines here and back home!

Highlights:

  • 5 wines + 1 fortified wine
  • Locally produced, organic olive oil
  • Regional cheese pairings, bread & olives
  • Location: Principe Real, Lisbon
  • Duration: 2.5 hours

 

CULINARY LISBON | food & wine walk

Together we’ll enjoy a half-day wandering through one of the most historic parts of Lisbon — eating, drinking and soaking in the history and beauty of the city. Our 4-hour tour will take us to an iconic food market, a favorite family-run gourmet store, the oldest coffee roaster in Lisbon, traditional bakeries and a tasting of several wines made from Portugal’s more than 300 indigenous grapes. We’ll walk through the neighborhoods, chat with vendors & restaurant owners, and catch a glimpse of a traditional way of life that is disappearing. While we walk, it will be a great pleasure for me to share some of my
favorite addresses and insights into life in Lisbon.

Highlights:

  • Private guide
  • Price includes all food, wine & tastings
  • An insider’s perspective
  • Duration: 4 hours
