wine tasting tour
José Maria da Fonseca
This tour proposes a visit to the region south of Lisbon, crossing the Tagus Bridge, up to Azeitão, in the district of Setúbal, located about 1 hour by car, approximately 50 km from the center of Lisbon. You will be taken to one of the best wine producers in Portugal, which exports around 80% of its wine production, based on several branded wines and the highest quality.
This wine company located in Cheleiros, in the municipality of Mafra, about 35 km north of Lisbon, began to produce quality wines in 2004. The village of Cheleiros, with the arrival of this winery, gained a new mood, in a rural area little developed. At the building of an old Primary School, which had been abandoned for lack of students, it is now the Wine Place, the wine cellar that centralizes all Jampal production.
