Portugal has an ancient tradition when it comes to wine production. This beverage is so important in our gastronomy that Portugal is one of the biggest consumers of wine per person in the world.
The value for money of our wine is second to none and many might even envy us for that, but when in Lisbon it is a blessing to be able to enjoy such product with the variety, quality and price that we have. It’s like drinking great wine is a fundamental right we have (and our visitors too, obviously).
Go on a pilgrimage to our “temples of wine” to celebrate this holy beverage and meet the gurus that present us with the best specimens of this Portuguese product that makes us so proud.

The original place is one of the most famous grocery shops where you can find the best Portuguese delicatessens. Recently they opened this fourth place, just next to the Belém Tower, that also has a seating area where you can try their produces, with focus on cheeses and cured hams, and pair them with the great selection of wines. Adding value to this place is the view from their terrace to the Tejo river. In the end you also have the opportunity to buy their products.
