Heading south from Lisbon you will reach Azeitão, a picturesque region famous for its cheese and wines. From here on you will have the opportunity to visit several of the region’s wine cellars. One of the renowned cellars is José Maria da Fonseca, where you will get to know all its history, and at the end sample some of the wines that they produce.
Quinta de Alcube is another cellar owned by a family for over a century. It’s a traditional production cellar, producing only 250 000 bottles a year and that is only sold directly to customers, being difficult to find in shops.
To end this “adventure” we will take you to another family owned cellar, Lima Fortuna, to get to know what they produce and even taste the famous regional cheeses, sweets and a liqueur that is made from a 450 year old recipe.
Besides all this, we will show you the Arrábida National mountain range and its natural reserve where you can experience all the beautiful natural views, its history, gastronomy and beaches (in summer). The tour is made for a full day but the duration can be made shorter to adjust to your schedule, it’s up to you.
You can also tell the guide what your main interest points are and we’ll take you there. Remember that we are able to custom build all our tours. So if you like the tour, but want to change something, don’t hesitate to tell us. We can work together and make it the tour of your liking.
