What you'll do

As a sommelier, I am often asked how to taste and understand wine from various countries. This experience will allow you to jump right into #TheChaLife, with a crash course social setting but structured tasting including a welcome toast, plus 4 wines and paired with a selection of Portuguese cheese and meats board.

See this as more of a social crash course on Portuguese wines to get you ready for dinning out experience while in Portugal.
Come with an open palate and ready to learn about the great quality wines produced in Portugal.

Learn about the diverse wine regions, micro climates, and soil types and 250+ grapes indigenous to Portugal with me. I will lead you through a guided tasting of a wine list I have curated for your experience to have a more intimate experience with local wine.

Current Theme: Unique Portuguese Wine Regions

Cha is a fantastic host and made me feel right at home. She asked me questions to get a sense of what I was looking for on this experience and chose some delicious, interesting wines. The wine bar she took me to was on my list of must-sees and did not disappoint. Cha has specialist knowledge of Portuguese wines, but her international background means she isn’t reverential about this particular country’s wines to the exclusion of elsewhere, and we had a good chat about how different grapes or glasses compared to those of other countries. She’s so much fun to talk to and very down to earth, unlike some sommeliers! Cha was so friendly and helped me out with other eating, drinking and sightseeing tips for Lisbon. I look forward to trying out some of those before heading home, too.

We had a wonderful time with Cha as she described each wine (4x) to us. She is knowledgeable about Portuguese wine, and wine from other regions. So she can make the link among the different wine. If you are into sampling wine, I would recommend this activity with Cha.

Forget about what you know about wine tasting and take this experience with Cha. Imagine your best friend is also a world class sommelier and they take you to drink their favorite wines without making a fuss out of it. It was casual, fun, we had fabulous wines and we learned a lot. Thank you Cha and see you next time we’re in Lisbon.

I had a lovely time learning about the wines from different regions in Portugal. Cha also asked us questions about our favorite wines which made the experience feel personalized. The wines she offered us were different from the typical wines you would be served around Portugal which was a great touch for the experience!

Loved this tasting with Cha. She’s extremely knowledgeable and it’s nice to learn her story and she has applied her expertise here in Lisboa. I had some delicious wines and made new friends.
