An Urban Winery in the Heart of Lisbon

Visit us and taste premium wines fabricated in the heart of Lisbon. We are only a few foot steps away from the Tagus riverfront and Belém’s main attractions. Meet us at the cellar door 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.

We hope to see you soon, abraços, beijinhos, à bientôt und bis bald!

Catarina, David, Ana Lula, Sofia and Lili

Our street terrace is open for tastings, drinks and tapas (groups of up to four people).  Due to CORONA health measures, the tasting room remains closed to the public. We remain open for shop pick up orders during usual opening hours directly at the cellar door.

(*Minimum order: 6 bottles)

Outstanding grapes, artful winemaking, and wines that taste and smell Belém!

Urban Winery

The winery is located in the heart of Lisbon’s historic district of Belém. It 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 modern production cellar, a barrel cellar, a large roof terrace and a cozy tasting room. The winery has its own waste water treatment plant and we use non-chemical steam cleaning technology to sanitize the winery and winemaking equipment. Many artifacts of the car repair shop now feature as decor in the cellar door, which can accommodate up to 50 visitors.

Oenology

Our wines are made from native varietals grown in the Atlantic climate of the Lisbon and Setúbal wine regions. Handpicked in the freshness of the early morning hours, the grapes ferment spontaneously in open vats. Adopting a minimal intervention approach, our aim is to grow outstanding wines with original personalities reflecting the particularities of each year and terroir – and of us as winemakers. 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+Love=Wine

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

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!

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