Wines made with love, and grapes as well

We love Lisbon, we live in Lisbon and we make every single wine in our winery in Lisbon.

Drop by and sample a selection of reds, whites, rosés and bubblies made from Portuguese varietals. Or learn more about wine making by taking part in a tour through our winemaking cellars or by booking a wine tasting class.

See you soon, abraços, beijinhos, à bientôt und bis bald!

Healthy grapes

Our grapes are grown in the foothills of Lisbon’s Monsanto mountain and in the Caparide Valley above Estoril. An additional part is grown the villages of Palmela in Setubal and Bemposta near Alenquer.

into delicious wines

We work with endemic grape varieties and yeasts because it makes more interesting wines reflecting the respective varietal characters as much as the special terroir of our winery and the Belém neighborhood on the banks of the river Tejo.

Sustainable Winemaking

To reduce our environmental impact, we use locally harvested grapes grown under integrated vineyard management, lightweight bottles, chemical-agent-free cleaning, energy saving inverter technology, recycled cardboard packaging, and in-house waste water treatment.

made in Lisbon

Bringing the winery inside the city means bringing the mystery of fermentation right to the doorstep of our clients. Our gates are usually wide open so that you can observe every step of transforming grapes into beautiful wines.

a Family Matter

Adega Belém is a family venture and everyone, young and old, gets involved. All label designs are based on drawings by Ana Lula and Sofia, the two junior winemakers whose work so well reflects the crazy and chaotic harmony of our lives – and wines.

Single Variety Whites

Three single variety white wines made from grapes from the north of Portugal: Encruzadao, Moscatel Galego and Alvarinho, yet grown in the vineyards next to Lisbon’s famous red bridge (“25 de abril”). Like three sisters, each develops an own personality while maintaining a common sensorial parenthood.

Encruzado Brut Nature

Handmade sparkling wine from Encruzado grapes grown in the foothills of the Monsanto mountains in Lisbon. Disgorgement à la volé, hand corked and labeled in our cellar in Belém. Delicious citric aroma, fine perlage and the best blob of the year made in the town of Lisbon.

Pet Nat 2021

Ancestral-method and on-skin fermented Moscatel Galego, unfiltered, no additives, an extreme wine, cloudy, strong perlage, difficult to open without making a mess, deeply fruit driven, delicious cold companion of hot summer days, but careful: this is no usual spritzer, it may convert you to natural wine.

Wine is fun

We think that wine is far less serious than so many of our contemporaries seem to pretend. Let’s taste and talk about what really matters, how we drink what we drink and what we like to drink, and let other people do the bullshitting.

Frogs+ethnography

Before becoming winemakers, 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.

= wine

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. ♥
