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.

Coteaux da Murta

Quinta da Murta, located in the hills of the demarcated region of Bucelas, are surrounded by one of the main Roman roads that crossed Portugal and very close to the last Anglo-Portuguese fortification, which served as the hinge against Napoleon's troops.


It is located about 25 km north of Lisbon, in the Lusitanian basin, whose soil dates from the Jurassic period.

The vineyard is planted on the upper slopes, 250 meters above sea level. Facing south and southwest, it is protected from the Atlantic winds by a range of hills, enjoying a very specific microclimate. Wet and relatively cold in the winter and in the evenings, contrasting with hot, dry days during the summer. All this contributes to a slow maturation, but perfect that retains the freshness of the Atlantic Ocean.

Besides the vineyard and its landscape, the existence of a modern winery, with tasting room and a shop where you can find old crops, the Quinta da Murta also features a ballroom, a rustic house with pool and an outdoor deck that can accommodate for all types of events up to 300 guests.
