Visit and Wine Tasting in Azeitão with
Katie and Roisin from UK! 
friend and I had such a wonderful afternoon with António. It was a far reach
from any wine tasting experience I had had before! The first thing I liked was
that we were only a small group of four which made it feel like four friends
going out for the afternoon rather than a huge battalion of tourists. We
started with a coffee and a local cake/pastry before taking a glacial stroll
around Azeitao, which was about a 40 min – 1 hr drive out of Lisbon. Then we
headed to a large winery nearby called Bacalhoa, which had an extensive art
collection. The winery guide was knowledgeable about all the pieces of art, as
well as approachable and amusing. This was not what I expected! But was most
welcome and very interesting. The wine tour itself was both interesting and
breathtaking, in particular the red wine room which combined a monasterial
atmosphere with an impressive tile collection and a delightful boozey aroma!
The gardens surrounding the winery are also worth a look and contain a number
of interesting art pieces as well as natural pieces, including ancient olive
trees and a tree borne of seed derived from the only surviving tree from the
hiroshima bombing. We finished our tour with a wine tasting back in the
shop/reception area, for us this included a rose, red wine and two moscatels
(although I understand from António that this selection varies). The wines were
well explained and all delicious (the purple moscatel was a real delight for
me!). On the route back we chatted about all things as old friends, not just
standard tour chat. António was friendly and approachable throughout without
being pushy or overbearing. Should I return to Lisbon, and I intend to, I will
be emailing António for recommendations of what to do and see and would have no
hesitation booking a tour with him in the future!." Join
