Wines in the image of Lisbon

The winery is located in Lisbon’s historic district of Belém, only a few foot steps away from the Tagus riverfront and Belém’s main attractions. We try to make our wines in the image of Lisbon, giving them a complex architecture with filigrane structure, multilayered aromas and an intensive bright aspect.

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.

Complex, filigrane and multilayered

Our wines are made from native varietals grown in vineyards located at Tapada da Ajuda, Higher Institute of Agronomy of the University of Lisbon in Ajuda and on the banks of the Alenquer River in the village of Bemposta. We also receive grapes from the Palmela area for the production of our Unicórnio Graúdo. 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.

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. We use indigenous yeasts and let the wines grow at their own rhythm because we think it makes wines with more personality and soul, and actually reflects the very own character and ambience of the neighborhood of Belém.

Depending on the year, our production ranges between 12,000 and 16,000 bottles, which we sell in the cellar door in Belém, in our online shop and via a selection of retailers and restaurants.

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. ♥

Made of grapes and love, and nothing else

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.

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 !

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!
