Lisbon, as we know, is a place of stories and tales, adventure and romance.
The Tram28 team made a visit to a place where romance and tales are made…
A place that in past water run from there to every were, now, wine is king and Queen…
We visit this last Friday a well-idealised place, called Charafiz do Vinho. This little but wonderful restaurant is in a stone house, called the Mother-of-Water Fountain, that forms part of the monumental Águas Livres Aqueduct and is connected to the Patriarchal Reservoir. Journalist and wine critic João Paulo Martins has selected some 300 labels to fill the wine cellar. Accompany the wine with carpaccio, seafood like mussels and scallops, cheeses, and different kinds of cold cuts.
If you are wandering around Principe Real, and looking for a wine bar for after dinner drinks, just try to find this gem and order The port braised pears and some delicious Portuguese wine. You will find a little nook upstairs to sit in, will make you feel like you are in your own castle and your wines are hidden beneath in the castle cellars. A truly wonderful experience.
Try and have a glass of wine at Águas Livres Aqueduct in Lisbon, at Happy hour who starts at 6 and goes to 8:30 p.m. when you can choose four wines to taste by the glass.
A very traditional Portuguese spot to eat and drink.
