A Family Winery in the Heart of Lisbon

We founded Adega Belém as an urban family winery in the historic district of Belém in Lisbon, Portugal in 2017. We produce red, white, rosé and bubbly wines from Portuguese native grapes grown in the greater Lisbon area. Our wines are made in small batches, and we challenge each wine to develop its own personality. To achieve this, we adopt a minimal intervention approach and let the grapes ferment spontaneously. We have experienced that this makes better balanced, more complex and eventually more interesting wines that reflect the particularities of each terroir and vintage.

Come and meet us at the winery in Belém, we are a very short walk away from the riverfront and Belém’s main attractions.

Abraços, beijinhos, à bientôt und bis bald!

Catarina, David, Ana Lula, Sofia and Lili

Wine, Frogs & Love

Before becoming a winemaker, Catarina was an evolutionary biologist and studied the mating calls (“quak quak”) of the Iberian tree frog. David was an anthropologist exploring the social life of coastal people in the Western Indian Ocean. We met at a barbecue party of a common friend in Lisbon. Through her scientific research, Catarina found that most female frogs respond to males who call in the local frog-dialect, but in some rare cases, females fall for the unique spell of a peculiar and exotic 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.

Oenology

Our wines are made from native varietals grown under integrated vineyard management. Planted by local vine gardeners in the Atlantic climate of the Lisbon and Setúbal wine regions, they benefit from an extended grape-ripening period, due to the combination of long hours of sunshine and the cooling effect of the Atlantic Ocean and Tagus River. Handpicked in the freshness of the early morning hours, they are taken to the winery by our Toyota Dyna 150, almost as old as we are (but in much better shape) and processed immediately. We use a vertical press, which allows smooth and slow pressings. Depending on the year, our production ranges between 12,000 and 16,000 bottles.

Cellar door

The winery is built in an old car repair shop inside the walls of the 18th century former infirmary of the king of Portugal. We have modernized the building by entirely replacing the roof and integrated several cozy tasting rooms, a barrel aging room and a laboratory. The main tasting room is open to the street and has a capacity of 50 visitors. We can accommodate additional groups in our breakout room, roof terrace and cellar room. The main tasting room has a wet bar and is fully equipped to offer wine tastings and cold snacks.

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.

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!
