Sample several unique wines with an unusual history from the westernmost wine region in continental Europe. On the way to the Sintra-Colares cellar, you will stop for photos at the Belém Tower, the riverfront fortress from which so many Portuguese explorers set sail. This landmark should pique your curiosity about the local history, which is especially interesting with regard to wine. The Colares region is one of the few places in the world suitable for growing ramisco grapes because they must be planted in deep sandy trenches so the roots can reach the clay soil below. The vines must also be maintained low to ground to survive the steady salty winds. It is a fascinating and arduous process that you will learn about during the wine and tapas tasting at the wine cellar, which was founded in 1931. Afterwards, you will discover more about the area during the panoramic tour of Lisbon.
