Visit with tasting of 3 wines and regional products

Founded over 180 years ago, José Maria da Fonseca is one of the leaders in the production of table and fortified wines in Portugal, with its brands present in over 70 countries. This success comes from the enormous human and material investment and the constant capacity for renewal throughout its history.

Currently, in the seventh generation, it has been able to preserve a precious heritage without neglecting modernization, meeting the demanding standards of today’s consumers.

The Manor House, built in the 19th century and restored in 1923 by the Swiss architect Ernesto Korrodi, was the residence of the Soares Franco family until the 70s. With a very special façade and gardens, it has always been associated with the image of José Maria of Fonseca.

The guided tour begins at the Manor House with a brief explanation of the company’s history, followed by a visit to the old wineries: Adega da Mata and Adega dos Teares Novos, where the Periquita wine, and others, ages, and the Adega dos Teares Velhos, where the oldest Moscatels of Setúbal rest, some of which are authentic relics over 100 years old.

At the end, you will have the opportunity to discover and taste some of the wines produced by José Maria da Fonseca, 2 wines and 1 Moscatel de Setúbal, accompanied by the best products of the region: cheese, sausage, bread and oil.

When visiting our Wine Shop, you can also choose a wine for that special occasion and complement it with regional gourmet products.

You can also end your visit with a meal in our Wine Corner restaurant, integrated in the Casa Museu, where you can enjoy a unique gastronomic experience among wines and regional flavors.

Come and discover the essence of a family of wines with nearly 200 years of history!
