Best Things to do in Lisbon | Harvest Time

Harvest time is here. In the vineyards, the grapes are ripe and ready to be picked. Everything is prepared to make the new wine and, not far from Lisbon, you can participate in this amazing moment. Today, on the Best Things to do in Lisbon series I'll bring you some wine tourism experiences that you can enjoy just a few kilometers from Lisbon on the Setúbal's Peninsula Wine Region.

Do you remember the visit I've made last May to Fernando Pó, a wine district near Lisbon? It was an amazing experience and you can read all about it here. The good news is that you can do it this month, during the harvest, and it will include grape picking and winemaking experiences.

It can't get any more convenient than this to any one visiting Lisbon. A train starting from the main Train Station in the city (Oriente) will comfortably take you to Fernando Pó in under an hour, where you will be guided on a visit to its main wineries on a truly amazing gastronomic experience. Next visits on 9, 16 and 23 September.

If you have a more tight budget, there are several wineries in the region that held open days this harvest time, including a guided visit and a wine tasting for free.

If you are planning your visit to Lisbon, maybe you want to consider to save a day to visit Setúbal Península Wine Region, the Arrábida and book one of this wine experiences that will be held from 9 September to 8 October.

You can check the dates and book at the Setúbal's Península Wine Region Route. The first experience is called "De Comboio até às Vindimas" (By Train to the Harvest) and the second "Adegas de Portas Abertas" (Wineries with Open Doors).

  1. That's my favorite activity for this part of the year! I hope I can do wine harvesting in Portugal one day!

  2. Lisbon at harvest time promises to be a great experience. Visiting vineyards around this time must be a pretty satisfying experience.

  3. Sounds like a great plan! It's definitely on my Portugal list!

  4. Awesome, I didn't know that there were wineries so close to Lisbon!

  5. It must be fun to be in vineyard at the best time it has. :)

  6. We've been to Adega Mãe and it was wonderful, the nature is awesome
