We will give you the opportunity to discover some of the finest wine producers of the region.

The Quinta is located in Aldeia Galega, in Alenquer, demarcated region of Lisbon, mentioned since the XVI century for its excellent vineyards and wines. It belonged, from the beginnings of the century XIX, to Constantine O`Neil, who later donated it to Diogo Duff, the esteemed Scottish nobleman of King D. John VI who decorated him with the commendation of "Tower and Sword".

After the wine experience, you will discover Quinta do Gradil. Your last stop of the day will be at Quinta do Gradil. Quinta do Gradil has a strong wine tradition that has persisted for centuries. The property comprises a noble Chapel ornamented by an artistically decorated tower, a cellar and an agricultural area of 200 hectares with fruit and wine production where international award-winning wines are produced. It is thought that the Marquis of Pombal would have acquired the Quinta do Gradil in 1760, although the earliest references date back to 1492, the year of the document that D. Martinho de Noronha received from the King João II, the donation letter of the jurisdiction and rents of the Cadaval County and Quinta do Gradil. In the 90s, Luis Vieira acquires the Quinta to Sampaio de Oliveira and, since then, the modernization of the winery and existing vineyards has begun. You will enjoy the harmonizations with 5 wines from Quinta do Gradil and the XO grape brandy in a gastronomic selection prepared by the Chef in 5 moments.

Your last visit of the day will be at Quinta do SanguinhalAbel Pereira da Fonseca, an entrepreneur and farmer of Bombarral that became known for creating the wine distribution and marketing empire, initially named Abel Pereira da Fonseca & Cª, that has grown until becoming the second largest wine marketing company in Portugal, in 1982. This entrepreneur sowed the seeds of the business, but decided to withdraw from the company in 1937. His decision was due to his will to devote more time to Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal, which he had established in the 1920s to manage, along with his sons, the family estates in his region. You will have a private visit to the 19th century gardens and to the vineyards of Quinta do Sanguinhal, to an old distillery with 300 m(3.229 sq. ft.) fully recovered, where wine spirit and grape mark spirit use to be produced, to an old mill with pole presses, dated of 1871, to an ageing cellar with 36 barrels.

Enjoy your breakfast at the hotel.
 
The Chauffeur is waiting for you in the lobby of the Hotel.
 
You will discover Estoril and Cascais, the Portuguese riviera.  both places became one of the most cosmopolitan and touristic places in Portugal ever since King Luís I chose the bay for his summer residence in the late 19th century. The mild climate and an annual average of 260 rainless days were surely strong reasons for his choice and for the most affluent families of the time to follow the royal family and set up their villas and mansions there. It’s worth going on a stroll around town to get a feel for the atmosphere of that period. To get there, you will follow the beautiful waterfront road from Lisbon to Cascais. It’s a very scenic route, always hugging the River Tagus and the busy beaches of the Estoril coast. En route, you will pass various forts erected to defend the capital, providing crossfire with the Bugio Fort, right in the middle of the river mouth, between Santo Amaro, on one side, and Trafaria, on the opposite bank. Discover this handsome resort of grand mansions and fisherman’s houses covered round a bay dotted with sandy beaches, complete with a flash marina and a fort.
 
Dinner, will be served at Sommelier Lisbon Wine Restaurant. A bold and innovative restaurant in the center of Lisbon. This place is more than a restaurant, it's a family of wine lovers, a place where you can relax, share ideas, have fun, be a part of great events and meet new friends. The dining area is tastefully decorated with sofas, chairs and armchairs made in Portugal, and the idea is to create an atmosphere to chill out among friends. The menu offers Portuguese cuisine with a few international influences, that goes well with the wine.
 
Return to the Hotel.

Starting at Quinta da Bacalhôa palace and Museum, one of the most emblematic wine producing estates in the region, not only because of its awarded wines, but also because of the beautiful framework of the estate and Palace, from the 14th century. The Bacalhôa brand, established in 1922, has allays showed a search for the perfection of their wines. The commitment of Bacalhôa Vinhos de Portugal is focused on the product differentiation, followed by a strong innovative component simultaneously, in order to not only meet but also anticipate and even exceed the expectations of the visitors of its spaces. This differentiation ambience of is clearly noticed in the famous Palace and Quinta da Bacalhôa, in Azeitão, a estate with a history that dates back to the beginning of the Avis Dynasty.
The experience includes a visit to Bacalhôa Museum/Winery and Bacalhôa Palace with exclusive tour guide with a wine tasting: Sparkling Wine Vintage, Catarina White Wine, Quinta da Bacalhôa Red Wine, Moscatel Colheita 2002 (10 year old Fortified Wine) accompanied by azeitão chesse.
Final stop at the Museum House José Maria da Fonseca. Built in the XIX century, the House Museum was restored in 1923 by the Swiss architect Ernesto Korrodi and was the residence of the Soares Franco family until 1974. With a façade and gardens of very special beauty, the House Museum has always been associated to the image of José Maria da Fonseca. This is one of the main responsible estates for the national and international recognition of the region. The portfolio of José Maria da Fonseca comprises more than thirty brands of high quality, representing the major national wine regions. Many of them enjoy today great popularity.  The tour starts in the Museum Room with a brief summary of the company’s history. Then, after enjoying a walk through the lovely gardens, visitors have the opportunity to visit three cellars. The first is called Adega da Mata, where the famous Periquita matures in oak casks. We then proceed to the Teares Novos Cellar, venue of the prestigious annual assembly of the Periquita Brotherhood, and finally we arrive at the Teares Velhos Cellar, where the oldest Setubal Moscatels rest in silence. Tasting of one white wine, two red wines and a Setubal Moscatel.
 
Dinner is waiting for you at Eleven Restaurant. The restaurant stands out since the beginning by the building’s architecture (architectonic project by Arch. João Correia) who assumes himself as a modernist and minimalist in the exterior decorative forms and elements. It is a building that uses natural materials (stone, wood) connecting to the exterior, through the enormous windows turned to Tejo. The kitchen is a piece of decoration since it does not only exist as a transparent zone for the customers, but they can actually enter the kitchen. Eleven Restaurant has obtained its first Michelin star in November 2005. The gastronomical concept of Eleven Restaurant is profoundly rooted in the knowledge of its chef, Joachim Koerper. This Chef has a unique capacity to ally his knowledge to the places he works in, in order to adapt his creativity and recreate traditional courses and discovering new ways to utilize the ingredients available in our squares and markets.
