Built in the XIX century, the House Museum José Maria da Fonseca was restored in 1923 by the Swiss architect Ernesto Korrodi and was the residence of the Soares Franco family until 1974. With a façade and gardens of very special beauty, the House Museum has always been associated to the image of José Maria da Fonseca.

In Detail

Established in 1834, José Maria da Fonseca is one of the leaders in the areas of production and sale of table and fortified wines. This brand is marketed in more than 70 countries.

The portfolio of José Maria da Fonseca comprises more than thirty brands of high quality, representing the major national wine regions. Many of them enjoy today great popularity, national and internationally and are emblematic of our country.

This success is a result of the huge human and material investment and the constant renewal capacity of José Maria da Fonseca, throughout its history. Currently in its seventh generation, it has been able to preserve its precious heritage without disregarding modernization, to meet the high standards of its consumers, surprising them every step of the way.

"Nuestra experiencia en Portugal siempre es muy buena. Esta vez hemos optado por conocer vinos de la zona que apenas habiamos tenido contacto y ha sido todo un acierto. Nuestra ruta ha sido Setubal, Azeitao donde estuvimos en las bodegas de J.M. Fonseca con Andres que nos enseño la bodega e hicimos una cata de fabulosos vinos de la zona."
