WINE CORNER BY JOSÉ MARIA DA FONSECA
RESTAURANT / WINEBAR IN AZEITÃO
The Wine Corner by José Maria da Fonseca is the company’s flagship restaurant, integrated in its Museum House in Vila Nogueira de Azeitão.
The relaxed and pleasant environment is designed with the goal of providing an immersive experience into the winery’s history and values, where one can taste all of the wines from José Maria da Fonseca, either by the glass or by the bottle, combined with a high-quality yet informal gastronomical offering.
The name Wine Corner was not chosen by chance. This space is integrated in what was once the house of the Soares Franco family and is now the Museum-House of José Maria da Fonseca, in one of the corners of the building, formerly known as the “Corner House”. And it is intended to continue being known like this. A welcoming corner, dedicated to wine and the history of a family business with almost 200 years. A Wine Corner by José Maria da Fonseca.
The menu of the Wine Corner, designed by local chef Luís Barradas, reflects a concept of food-sharing, which includes a selection of regional ingredients, with a modern twist. Chef Luís Barradas offers a unique gastronomical experience, in harmony with the wine portfolio of José Maria da Fonseca.
Aside from being a restaurant, the Wine Corner is also a wine bar, where one can find over 60 different wine offerings, from whites, reds, rosés, sparkling wines and fortified wines, as well as a variety of choices of tapas. This is the ideal place to spend a relaxed meal with a group of friends.
The Wine Corner has the capacity for 100 seats, between two interior rooms and a terrace.
