About the Lisbon Winery
Who are we?
The Lisbon Winery was born in 2015 by the hand of two former journalists and passionate wine & food lovers.
We had been doing Portuguese Wine Tastings, Port Tastings and Tapas Tastings since 2012 mostly for fun. We wanted to spread the word about the amazing Portuguese gems, the small producers that we loved and our findings during our epic food & wine trips. The tastings became so famous that people started asking for more.
In 2015, we had enough hope and craziness to start the daily tastings. And it was a quick success. People loved our passion for the wines. And passion, as we all know, is contagious. We really love what we do. So, instead of a tasting with a lot of technical words, we offer unique Portuguese wine tastings with the right blend of information, fun, curiosities, stories. Yes, we have fun with the wine.
The Lisbon Winery has gathered a dream team of wine specialists. People like us, not afraid of showing genuine enthusiasm for what we do. Our mission is to make you fall in love with the Portuguese flavours. We do it with a smile, sense of humour, knowledge and a unique selection of boutique Portuguese wines.
Most of the wines that we serve have less than 6000 bottles in the market, a lot of them even less than 3000. We prefer small, to mass production, we prefer unique to commercial. That makes our tastings special.
We are also part-time detectives. Always looking for new wines, always tasting new things, discovering small producers, new wine adventures, crazy experiments.
In a country like Portugal, with more than 250 native grape varietals, the playground is exciting. This journey of discovery is a big part of our passion and fun. And whenever we get excited with a new discovery, we can not keep the secret. We share it with you at the Lisbon Winery. That is why every single one of our wine tastings is different and unique. That is why the Portuguese wine tastings and Port tasting have become so famous.

our passionate Team
Meet the team
Our team has different talents, but a common passion for slow food and slow wine. Lisbon Winery is a place where we share this intense passion with you.
We are privileged to work amongst friends. The people that work here every day have shared deep joy and painful tears, victories and failures, long lunches and some hangovers.
Some of us have been friends for more than 13 years. This respect, admiration and love travels in the air, in the glasses, in the wine we serve.
Our wine selection honors our believes. Our mission is to preserve the amazing Portuguese treasure of more than 250 native grape varietals. And to make you fall in love with this treasure.
The Wine Queen
If there is a rule, she is probably ignoring it. We call her The Nose, because she smells things that no one ever gets (but she says that in real life that can be a curse). Loves dogs, music, driving cars and big motorcycles.
The Port Lover
Wanted to be an artist, but found out she had no talent, so she decided to get married with ideas instead. Loves black & white movies, Tori Amos and chocolate.
Loves saying hi to strangers. After decades working with restaurants, she came to bring adult wisdom to our crazy minds. Also loves roaring Harley Davidsons, Benfica and Bingo.
Loves to be around women and empty plastic water bottles. Likes pistachio (yes, this is true) and licking butter from bread. Doesn’t drink wine, but pairs well with a red on Winter nights.
