Top 5 wine bars in Lisbon

While Lisbon’s kudos as a tourist destination has grown hugely over the past decade, so too has the reputation of its nation’s wines.

Pretty Lisbon

Portuguese wine sales in the UK have been growing steadily over the past few years, with 38,100 hectolitres of Portuguese still wine imported into the UK in 2017, compared to 26,124 hl in 2016.

One UK importer, Oakley Wine Agencies, reported year-on-year volume and value growth of over 60%.

“Portugal’s time seems finally to have arrived,” Oakley Wine Agencies founder, Nick Oakley, told the drinks business. “The country has been tipped to be ‘the next big thing’ for the last 25 years and it never seemed to happen, but it’s happening now, and in a big way”.

The city’s food scene is also thriving with the presence of several Michelin-starred restaurants, including Belcanto, Alma and Loco, alongside a roster of fabulously rustic tavernas serving up traditional fare and dozens of cevicheria’s – which highlight the city’s stellar reputation for seafood.

What better place to get under the skin of Portugal’s exciting and diverse wine industry than by working your way around the many traditional wine bars dotted throughout Lisbon with a glass in hand and a plate of petiscos?
