Academic Workshops

As former academics now exploring the more practical side of life, we still love to occasionally return to our scientific roots and organise a small annual workshop at the winery to debate theoretical issues related to wine , winemaking and wine consumption as social and cultural practices. In 2021, we focused on the idea of wine as a commodity produced and exchanged within a global urbe. Building on this workshop, in 2022, we focused on the notion of “origin” in wine and winemaking. Check back here regularly to learn about forthcoming events.

Adega LêBem – Wine Poetry Slam

On the last Wednesday of every month, Adega Belém join forces with Marina Ferraz to organise a poetry night at the winery, with invited poets and open microphone. Get your lyrical mind together and write a piece, this can be in Portuguese or any other language. No politics, war propaganda, or discriminatory language. Entry is free, but reservation is recommended.

Managing expectations

For us, the aim of a wine tasting is to explore the diversity of textures, aromas and styles produced via a natural fermentation process creating one of the most interesting, complex and intriguing drinks out there: wine. It’s not primarily about getting intoxicated. While we also do serve wine by the glass in standard wine glasses, as part of a tasting flight, we serve only small doses of 4cl per wine and encourage the use of spit buckets. Feel free to ask for a re-serve when you really like to further explore one of the wines in the tasting. So if you are on a booze tour or end-of-year student trip, you may look into booking a different place that may better respond to your needs.

To taste wines, participants must be at least 18 years of age. We encourage wine tasters to use the wine spit buckets that we provide. Casual dress code – please no beach wear. Our booking and cancellation conditions apply.
