See our review here!

 

Visit one of the richest wine regions near Lisbon. Besides the good red and white wines, the famous Moscatel de Setúbal is also produced here.

The tour begins with a surprising visit to one of the small producers in the region, whose wine is a well liked secret among connoisseurs. We will have a private tasting of their products.

On this route we propose also a visit to one of the most emblematic cellars of the Sado Wine region, with wine tastings and a visit to their winery.

During this day, we will also have the chance to try something different when we visit a traditional artisanal cheese producer, where you can literally  make Azeitão cheese, a cheese made from sheep’s milk, with your own hands.

You’ll make these soft cheeses with the help of an experienced local cheesemaker. Then you can taste the cheese, freshly made and others that are already semi-cured. The tasting also includes local produce and Moscatel.

At lunch time you’ll have a lunch of grilled sardines (or other fresh fish available on the market), or grilled meat in an outdoor terrace. And for dessert the famous tortas de Azeitão.

Recomendations: Bring comfortable shoes, a camera, an appetite and good spirits.

Price: 95 euros (all tastings, food and transportation included; a supplement of 10% may apply if a tour has only 2 persons); 65 euros with departure from Azeitão.

Hours: Departure from Lisbon at 10.30, return at 5.30 pm.
