This must be one of my favorite experiences in Lisbon. To summarize, great wines, tons of Port wines, if you're not sure, the guys there will spend lots of time explaining the ins and outs of making wine. Felt like a crash course, but also fun! I ordered 1 glass of wine and they offered 3 tasters to see which... More

If you consider yourself a wine lover, but you are not quite sure which one you really do love, this wine bar is a great place to start your adventure with portuguese wines. The staff will guide you through your preferences and offer three wines to taste (I am not saying it will be an easy choice!). Very helpful and... More

this review isn't based on anything i sampled at this bar. unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) my experience of this place is predicated on the fact i was unable to: on a rainy early evening, walked in with my fiancé hoping for a nice glass and a wind-down. we walked up to the bar where the man informed us there were...

We stayed close by and found it by accident. The staff are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. An excellent selection of Protuguese wines and a try before you buy based on questions about your preferences ensures you will enjoy whatever you select. The first visit we had eaten so only drank wine but on the second we enjoyed a good mixed... More

Visited this wine bar last week (january). Me a my friend were asked what kind of wine and budget we were looking for and after we could taste 3 wines. We picked one and the taste was good. We got some bread and olives on the house. The only negative thing was the temperature: they kept the door open so... More

Went to Wine Bar do Castelo, good ambiance and great location (just few steps from Castelo). Wine selection quite decent, specially if you would like to try Portuguese wines. I recommend to start with a White (extra dry) Porto. Then move to red wines and accompany them with a great selection of cheese and charcuterie.

This is a fantastic, cozy wine bar very close to the Sao Jorge Castle. Our family of five (including three older teenagers) stopped by for a snack in the early afternoon after visiting the castle. Our waiter, Diogo, spoke English and was able to teach us volumes about Portugese wines and port. He was friendly and generous with his pours.... More

This is a fantastic little wine bar close to the castle. Good for snacks (delicious pumpkin jam and a selection of Portuguese cheeses). The service is attentive - although they also leave you alone to enjoy your wine :-)

This is an intimate location to discover Portuguese wines. The staff, who all speak excellent English, are genuinely enthusiastic to share their knowledge of the country's wines. While the food options are limited, they are perfectly suited to explore a variety of wines. I returned twice, purposely taking streetcar 28E from its starting point to ameliorate the experience.
