MANOR HOUSE

WINETOURISM

Built in the nineteenth century, the house was restored in 1923 by the Swiss architect, Ernesto Korrodi, and was the Soares Franco family residence until the 70’s decade of the XX century. With its particularly beautiful façade and gardens, it has always been associated with the image of José Maria da Fonseca.

The visit to the Museum House begins with a brief explanation of the company’s history, followed by a tour of the ancient wine cellars: Adega da Mata and Adega dos Teares Novos, where wines such as Periquita mature, and Adega dos Teares Velhos, where the oldest Setúbal Muscatels (Muscats or Moscateis) rest, some of which are true relics over 100 years old. At the end of the tour, the visitor can sample some of the wines produced by José Maria da Fonseca.

When visiting our Wine Shop, you’ll be spoilt for choice for that special occasion and you can complement the wine with regional gourmet products.




TOURS

When you visit the house where José Maria da Fonseca was founded in 1834, you’ll get to know the essence of a Wine Family with almost 200 years of history, where the values passed down from generation to generation are kept alive while allowing the company to project itself into the 21st century.

You can also enjoy an unparalleled wine and gastronomic tasting experience and find out about the history, flavours and essence of the wine produced here for almost two centuries.

The José Maria da Fonseca Wine Tourism was distinguished in the 2013 W Awards (awarded by the wine critic Aníbal Coutinho) as Best Wine Tourism without Accommodation for 2012. From 2015 to 2018 the Manor House José Maria da Fonseca has won TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence. In 2018 we received over 42 thousand visitors from 80 different countries.

WINE TASTING

And because a visit to a wine producer would never be complete without tasting what has been produced here for almost two centuries, at the end of the tour, each visitor will have the chance to get to know better some of our wines.
