Join us at Chiado’s for some great food and Wine


Monte da Ravasqueira Tasting

Tuesday, April 19

Chiado Restaurant, 864 College St

From 7:00 p.m.


The Wines

Located about an hour’s drive from Lisbon, the Monte da Ravasqueira estate occupies a vast area of typical Alentejan landscape. Commercial Director, Dr. Joaquim Guimaraes from Monte da Ravasqueira will be visiting us and presenting their wines.

Monte da Ravasqueira is committed to the production of distinctive, quality wines, and it is also engaged in the production of cork, olive oil and honey, as well as rearing fine cattle and breeding the Lusitanian horse.

The excellent geological conditions and the climate are well-suited to the production of some of the best wine that the Alentejo has to offer. A great deal has been invested in planting vines and also in modern winemaking equipment and in meteorological and plant-health facilities.

The Venue

Chiado is one of the most elegantly formal dining rooms in the city. The opulent main room has marble floors, oil paintings, and fresh orchids, and draws a sophisticated crowd.

If you’re determined to dine here without breaking the bank, join us at our next wine tasting event. Come to learn all the latest news and taste the Ravasqueira wines to be presented by Joaquim Guimaraes while enjoying the luxury of Chiado.
