Wineries and Producers

Bucelas

The wine route of Bucelas, Carcavelos e Colares is already a classic in the county of Loures. Established in 2003 to publicize the winemaking tradition of a region that has a set of favourable factors to boosting wine tourism, this route is still a good excuse to taste the famous wine from the Demarcated Region of de Bucelas and to visit the producers associated with the project: the Municipality of Loures and eight producers (bottlers) of Bucelas’ wine: Enoport United Wines; Wine Ventures – Quinta da Romeira; Chão do Prado; Couteaux da Murta; Boas Quintas; Quinta Nova de Bucelas; Monte do Roseiral e Quinta das Carrafouchas.

By participating in this route, you can: visit the wine production farms existing in Bucelas parish; know a little more about the vineyards; visit some cellars and wineries; participate in wine tasting and even take with you, as a souvenir, the so called “nectar of the gods”.

On the way, the heritage and gastronomy are also highlighted, which allow participants to better understand the place, its people, developing and generating, this way, wealth in the regions.
