Lisboa has a long history in national viticulture. This region's vine area is made up of traditional grape varieties and the most famous international ones. Lisboa's diversity of relief and microclimates enables the region to produce a great variety of wines.

Formerly known as Estremadura, Lisboa wine region is located North West of Lisbon, occupying an area of about 40 km. The climate is mild due to Atlantic influence. Summers are fresh and winters soft, though colder in areas farther from the sea.

Although the region has good potential for the production of quality wines, about fifteen years ago it was essentially known for producing large quantities of low quality wine. Since then, the vines and wineries have been restructured. One of the restructuring steps involved planting new grape varieties, chosen according to quality, not quantity. Today, Lisboa's wines are known for their good quality/price ratio.

Most of the investments in the region went to the central areas (Óbidos, Arruda, Torres Vedras and Alenquer): the vines were modernised and new grape varieties were planted. Today, this region's best DOC wines come from red grape varieties such as Castelão, Aragonez (Tinta Roriz), Touriga Nacional, Tinta Miúda and Trincadeira, which are sometimes blended with the Alicante Bouschet, Touriga Franca, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes, among others. The white wines are usually made from the Arinto, Fernão Pires, Seara-Nova and Vital grape varieties, though Chardonnay is also grown in some areas.
