Made with love, and grapes as well

In the image of Lisbon

Our wines are made from native varietals grown in the vineyards of the University of Lisbon in the foothills just above the winery and on the banks of the Alenquer River in the village of Bemposta. We also process grapes from the Palmela area to produce our Unicórnio Graúdo.

Our low-intervention approach to winemaking combines traditional techniques of spontaneous fermentation, aging in oak barrels, foot-treading and on-skin maceration with contemporary cellar technology. Handpicked in the freshness of the early morning hours, the grapes are taken to the winery with the help of our 40-year old lorry and ferment in open vats. We use indigenous yeasts and let the wines grow at their own rhythm.

The result are wines pretty much in the image of Lisbon, with a complex architecture, filigrane structure, multilayered aromas and an intensive bright aspect. Depending on the year, our production ranges between 12,000 and 16,000 bottles, which we sell at the cellar door in Belém, in our online shop and via a selection of retailers and restaurants.

Co-creating ecstatic delight, but responsibly please!

The winery is built inside an old car repair shop within the walls of the 18th century former infirmary of the king of Portugal. We have modernized the building and integrated a contemporary production cellar, a barrel cellar, a large roof terrace and a cozy tasting room. Many artifacts of the car repair shop now feature as decor in the cellar door, which can accommodate up to 50 visitors.

We care about the environmental impact of the winery. That’s why we have built our own waste water treatment plant and use non-chemical steam cleaning technology to sanitize the winery and winemaking equipment. We avoid plastic wrappings and polystyrene packaging and use recycled cardboard instead.

Frogs + Ethnography = Wine

Before studying winemaking and becoming winemakers, we were university researchers.

Catarina was a biologist studying the mating calls (“quak quak”) of the Iberian tree frog and David an anthropologist doing ethnography in the Western Indian Ocean. Through her research, Catarina found that female frogs generally respond to males who call in the local frog-dialect. Only in some rare cases, females fall for the unique spell of a peculiar foreign male passing by their pond, and love happens.

That’s kind of our story. And that’s why the Iberian tree frog is our logo. ♥

What anthropologists and others say about us

Hoje provei os vinhos da Adega Belém. Visitem, vale muito a pena, tanto pelos vinhos como pelos fantásticos anfitriões. =)

Mariana Lopes

Jornalista de vinhos @winemariana

We highly recommend visiting this urban winery, perfectly located at walking distance from Belem’s other major attractions. Take it as an occasion to relax, sip excellent wines and learn about them, and spend time in the nice company of the creators of this innovative project. David and Catarina are fluent in several languages (among which Portuguese, English, French, and German), and you may leave the winery not only with good wine 😉 but also with unique insights on the area and on life in Lisbon and Portugal more broadly!

Une expérience incroyable ! Les propriétaires sont adorables et les vins servis sont délicieux. Nous avons pu en goûter de cépages différents et de goûts divers. Les propriétaires expliquent avec passion comment ils fabriquent leurs vins. L'endroit est très mignon et surtout très agréable ! Nous en ressortons plus que ravies avec des étoiles plein les yeux et du vin plein les papilles 🍷Si vous voulez passer un moment unique et humainement enrichissant tout en dégustant des vins qui changent de vos habitudes alors foncez !

Two enthusiastic lecturers who, once in Switzerland, enriched my knowledge of the world of wine, finally creating their own winery. Am looking forward to tasting the results of their global experience.

We look forward to joining Catarina e David at Adega Belém Urban Winery for the quality of their wines, their convivial company and their encouragement of scholarly exchange!

L’Adega Belém Urban Winery de David et Catarina est un lieu de culture, de plaisir et d’expérimentation qui plaira aussi bien aux œnophiles aguerris qu’aux novices amateurs. Santé !

Tristan Loloum

Anthropologist

A Adega de Belém, por mares nunca dantes navegados! A Catarina e o David não podiam ter feito menos do que uma adega do local de onde partiram as caravelas portuguesas levando o vinhos e culturas. Vinhos artesanais, com cunho pessoal, que fazem as delícias "das mais desvairadas gentes" que por Belém têm passado!

Manuel Malfeito Ferreira

Catarina, Grande mulher, grandes missões, grande adegueira e grande enologa - que o bom espirito do Sado te faça igualmente brilhar no Tejo!
