Looking for the best natural wine bars in Lisbon? I’ve got you covered!
If you know me then you know that I’m obsessed with natural wine, and have been for years. Whenever I’m visiting a new city, the first thing I do is research any natural wine bars in the area. Often, there sadly aren’t many. But if you are a natural wine lovers like me, you’ll be happy to know that Lisbon is filled with some of the best natural wine bars in the world.
I’ve gone ahead and put together a guide of my favorite Lisbon natural wine bars below – whether you’re looking for a cafe to work from while you enjoy a glass, a casual evening bar, or a wine bar with a great atmosphere.
The best natural wine bars in Lisbon
Vino Vero is easily up there as one of the best wine bars in Lisbon, especially if you’re looking for natural wine.
Located in Travessa do Monte in the Graca neighborhood, you’ll find this natural wine bar bustling with guests almost every night of the week. This second location of a popular wine bar in Venice offers some of the best natural wines in the world.
If you’re planning to stop by on a weekend night I recommend making a reservation, especially if you plan to eat. If you are not eating and don’t mind enjoying a glass standing outside, this is a good option as well.
Vino Vero offers hundreds of different bottles of natural wine, sourced from all over the world – a collection that has taken them 3+ years to build.
A wide range of bottles are available in addition to 7 or 8 glass pours – ranging from 5€ to 8€.
Tip: If you aren’t able to get a table at Vino Vero, head next door to LA MATTA for a delicious pizza. Or for something more traditional, head around the corner to Penalva a Graca.
From the minute that I decided to book another trip to Lisbon, I had this tiny natural wine bar marked on my map to visit. The bar is tiny, but it has no shortage of incredible natural wines!
One thing that I love about Holy Wine is that you are able to order any of their wines from the glass, rather than just ordering from a small selection of glass pours. It makes it so much more interesting in my opinion.
Reservations aren’t necessary but since the small is tiny, it is likely that you’ll enjoy your wine hanging around in front of the bar.
Part natural wine bar, part vegetarian restaurant, Senhor Uva is definitely a spot to add to your Lisbon itinerary. It is also one of the best places in Lisbon to eat. You’ll find a regularly rotating list of wines from small producers.
If you’re visiting on the weekend, or even a weeknight, it is essential to make a reservation at least a day or two in advance as they are typically fully booked. This is a spot that you definitely don’t want to miss.
If you don’t have time or aren’t able to snag a reservation, be sure to stop by there shop, Senhor Uva la Cave, to pick up a bottle instead.
Black Sheep Lisboa
If you’re looking for natural wine and a bustling atmosphere, Black Sheep Bar offers just that. With only a few seats scattered by the bar, I wouldn’t bet on getting seating. But you can order your wine at the bar (if you can squeeze your way to the bar) and enjoy it outside, with a crowd that only grows throughout the evening.
If you’re looking for a quieter evening at the bar, I recommend visiting on a weekday, or venturing to Holy Wine a few minutes down the street instead.
Black Sheep has both international and Portuguese natural wines that can be enjoyed by the glass or by the bottle.
BOM BOM BOM
I stumbled upon BOM BOM BOM on my most recent visit to Lisbon and absolutely fell in love. The bar is more spacious than many of the other natural wine bars in Lisbon, but still offers a very relaxed ambiance.
In addition to their fabulous natural wine selection, they also have a daily rotating menu of delicious small farm-to-table style plates. The roasted carrots and labneh are my favorite.
Try to stop by for one of their Sunday sessions when the space is transformed into a jazz bar, or stop by to enjoy the weekend DJ.
Prado Merciarea is a Wine Bar Bistro, the sister to the more popular Prado restaurant. It offers a more casual, market vibe, but the menu is out of this world with an extensive selection of incredible wines. Prado Merciarea serves only local Portuguese wines, while all of the food dishes are sourced locally.
It tends to be more popular during the day than at night, since the menu offers light fare options, however dining for dinner is available as well.
Pop the Wine
Pop the Wine is a cozy, quiet wine bar in Graca. Opened in the last few years, this spot offers a delicious selection of only Portuguese natural wines. With a new, budding natural wine scene in Portugal, this is a great way to support local winemakers.
We stopped by on a Friday night, and the ambiance was super chill, with only 2 small tables and a few seats at the bar. It almost feels like you’re enjoying a glass of wine in your own living room.
Comida Independente is technically a grocery store and deli, with the option to dine in. Known for their pastrami sandwich and excellent selection of natural wines, Comida Independente is a casual spot and one of the best wine bars in Lisbon.
You’ll also find an array of tin fishes, cheeses, and meats.
Admittedly, I haven’t had a chance to make it to Comida Independente yet myself, but it is so high on my bucket list of wine bars that I couldn’t not add it to this list.
Located in the Belem area, this is a great bar to combine with a visit to the Belem Tower and perhaps a stop at the famous Pasteis de Belem for a pasteis de nata.
My favorite part of visiting Prova Enoteca is that, similar to Holy Wine, you can try a glass from any bottle of wine they have, so you aren’t limited to a small selection of by the glass options.
We were lucky enough to snag a last minute Friday night reservation at Tasca Pete on our most recent visit to Lisbon and I still think about this amazing meal daily. With only 4 tables and 2 nightly seatings, booking a reservation ahead of time is crucial.
Tasca Pete offers a rotating menu of small plates accompanied with a fantastic selection of natural wines. So although it is not technically a Lisbon wine bar, it makes the cut in my mind.
A few highly-recommend dishes include the fried chicken, crudo, and the shiso leaves.
If you’re looking for the best brunch in town that also serves natural wine, Heim Cafe is a good place to start. This plant filled cafes offers a delicious selection of brunch options, prepared with the finest ingredients.
Not to mention, they also have a handful of natural wines by the glass starting at 3,50 EUR if you want to enjoy a glass with brunch or kick off your evening.
In the mornings you can expect quite the rush, often times you’ll need to wait for a table. But as the day goes on it becomes more laptop-friendly, as many remote workers find a table in the afternoon lull.
Ippolito & Maciste
Ippolito & Maciste was my favorite natural wine bar in Lisbon so it deserves an honorary mention. Unfortunately, Ippolito & Maciste recently shut the doors of their Lisbon location, and relocated to Ericeira in case you’re heading to the beach.
Ippolito & Maciste offers a large selection of (mostly) natural wines, curated from bottles from all over the world, although there is a heavy influence of french wines (and a mostly french staff).
If you’re looking for a bite to eat, they have a small menu of plates. The tuna tartare was my favorite.
