Portugal is a huge producer of wines, and Lisbon has a great wine culture.

You can find wine by the glass for the same price as a bottle of water in many of Lisbon’s restaurants.

Nearly every restaurant has a house wine.

But then you will also find other restaurants where the wine is the main feature – where care has been put into producing it artisanally – naturally or organically, and careful thought has been put into pairing the wine with local petiscos.

The staffs of these bars enjoy educating the customer about local wines and traditions.

You also have the opportunity to do a short road trip and visit so many wineries near Lisbon. For more information, see my article, 18 wineries and vineyards you can visit near Lisbon, Portugal

And of course, there is port – which comes from the Douro Valley near Porto – a few hours away, which is also worth checking out.

And depending on when you visit Lisbon, there may also be a tasting going on at one of the bottleshops, or maybe even a wine festival.

Lisbon is also known for its fantastic, fresh seafood. If you want to learn more, see my article Finding the best seafood in Lisbon
