This is our second time visiting beautiful Lisbon. But this time we are part of a cruise tour, even our time is short in town we were able to meet another side of Lisbon. This time, limited by the structure of a tour, we explore the country side of this coastal town. After passing through the 25 Abril bridge and leaving behind the terra-cotta site we made our way to the town of Azeitao around 30 minutes away from Lisbon where Jose Maria da Fonseca winery is located.
Working since 1834 and with over 7 generations of experience Jose Maria da Fonseca is one of the most famous and prestigious winery in Portugal. The most amazing thing about this fact is that we were able to see with our own eyes and taste for ourselves this gem of Lisbon.
From the outside, the place looks small but once inside is like going to another dimension of beauty and time… take a look with me.
Here is a short video of our trip to the winery, if gives you a little insight of what we did and saw. To bad I can’t add a wine taste for you… If you like sweet on your wine, then Moscatel de Setúbal is a great option for you!
