“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Francisco accomodated 25 of us on a recent visit to Lisbon (May 2013), at the Palacio do Ramalhete.
He was very helpful in advance arranging the day, and flexible in terms of food/drink/costs etc. to accomodate our needs.
The venue itself was unbelievable - a really great place to spend the day. We originally planned to spend a couple of hours at the wine tasting and move on, but ended up staying there for the afternoon!
I highly recommend this experience if you are visiting Lisbon and looking for something to do as a group.

Hi!

Thank you so much for your tasting and the review on Venha Vinho Wine House.

It was truly a great pleasure to welcome you all and share a bit of the Portuguese wine scene.

Our conversation around wine followed by wine tasting, cheeses and other Portuguese specialties in a special ambiance is always great!

Lounging at Palacio Ramalhete just makes it special!

I hope to have you back soon for more Portuguese wines and fun.

Venha Vinho!

Francisco

“Fantastic, relaxing and informative wine tasting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

My boyfriend and I booked for a Venha Vinho wine tasting experience at the last minute during our holiday in Lisbon last week, and loved it. It was just the two of us, and we soon felt really relaxed and comfortable with Francisco, who was lovely, and very knowledgeable. The wine was incredible, and he also gave us some amazing cheese and chorizo at the end which we enjoyed very much. It was a real highlight of the holiday, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about wine. The hotel also looked beautiful, and we'd love to stay there next time we go to Lisbon.

It is always special to have educated wine lovers that appreciate the simple things in life as the best ones. A conversation around wine followed by wine tasting, cheeses and other Portuguese specialties in a special ambiance!

“"The best wine tasting in Lisbon!!!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I was there - for a wine tasting - with some friends that came to Portugal for the first time and it was just surprisingly good.

Francisco, the owner, is the perfect host. He was very friendly and helpful while he shared with us a hand full of stories and curiosities about Lisbon and the best Portuguese wines he has in his winebar (ask about the Port´s, he´s a specialist ;))

He (and "his" wines of course) provided a wonderfully nice and cozy evening. Definitely a place to come back to.

“The Best Place for the Best Portuguese Wine and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I was there with my wife in October and Francisco, the owner, is not only really friendly and charming but also very knowledgeable when it comes to wines and the history of Portugal. He also owns a tour guide company that caters that does exclusive tours of the country. Definitely worth checking out if you are in Lisbon!
