Visit, wine tasting and lunch at the Wine Corner

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

End your visit with a meal at our Wine Corner Restaurant by José Maria da Fonseca, integrated in the Casa Museu, where you can enjoy a unique gastronomic experience among wines and regional flavors.

The aim of this relaxed and pleasant space is to provide an immersive experience of the brand, where you can taste the entire portfolio of José Maria da Fonseca wines, by the glass or by the bottle, accompanied by simple but high-quality cuisine. The Wine Corner menu, authored by Chef Luís Barradas, reflects a concept of unpretentious gastronomy, which includes a selection of the best regional products with a modern twist.

In addition to a restaurant, the Wine Corner is also a winebar where you will find more than 60 wine references, from whites, reds, rosés, sparkling wines and liqueurs, as well as several suggestions for snacks and tapas. The ideal place to spend a pleasant end of the day with friends.

The name Wine Corner is not an accident, it has a history. The space is part of what was once the home of the Soares Franco family and is now the José Maria da Fonseca Museum House. Located in one of the corners of the huge building, formerly known as the “Casa do Canto”.

A cozy corner dedicated to wine and the history of a family business with almost 200 years of history.

Come and discover our house!
