Wines. The raison d’être of the Chafariz do Vinho.
Wines are the reason we’re here. As a wine bar, the Chafariz aims to open to wine-lovers the world of ambrosial tastes.
Wines from all over the world
For this reason, from the outset, Chafariz has served Portuguese and international wines. Alongside national wines, you will find French wines from various regions, German, Australian, Chilean, Argentinian, Spanish and Italian wines. The quantities of these that we hold in stock are relatively small, but they are frequently selected to be available for ordering by the glass.
Wine by the glass
Wine by the glass is one of our strong cards. We have recently installed a a temperature-control device that allows wine – whether still or bubbly – to be kept unaltered and in top condition, which now allows us to serve high-quality wine by the glass.
From the start, we’ve ensured to have a good supply of ports. We now have a wider range, and there are always high quality ports available by the glass. Of special mention is the “100 year” option, where you can taste four wines, all aged in the barrel: 10, 20, 30 and 40 year old ports.
Portuguese wines, new wines and old wines
We aim to stock the new Portuguese wines as they come onto the market and we are especially keen to avail the public of lesser-known wines: new brands, less famous or fashionable regions.
But we also have numerous old wines worthy of mention. Although today, there is a greater propensity for drinking newer wines, old wines continue to have their appreciators, who will find at the Chafariz some of the rarer and much-praised and award-winning wines of the past forty years.
Some of these wines are available in very limited quantities.

OLD AND RARE WINES
The wines in this section were tested and approved during the last year. There are great possibilities of being healthy. Always expect wines somewhat fragile, slender that can improve in the glass along the proof.
