BA Wine Bar do Bairro Alto

BA Wine Bar do Bairro Alto
Wine and cheese bars are ubiquitous in Lisbon – and why not? The country counts beautiful bounties of both! And most follow the same formula: Taste a few wines, pick your favorite by the glass, and pair it up with a cheese and charcuterie plate. BA Wine Bar do Bairro Alto is no different in that regard, but it the similarities end there. The intimate and friendly service doesn't feel touristy at all – exceptional for the otherwise nightlife-heavy district of Bairro Alto – and the discerningly-sourced wines, cheeses and charcuterie (black pork presunto!) from small artisanal producers will floor you. Don't even think about showing up without a reservation.

BA Wine Bar do Bairro Alto
Our last dinner in Lisbon was an unforgettable experience. BA Wine Bar do Bairro Alto is a tiny tiny wine-focused shop serving well of course wine and delectable wine and charcuterie platters. We were lucky to grab a table late in the evening, being warned that there are no 'hot dishes' served there we were ready to dive in for an education on wine and meat and cheese to accompany. The staff are so attentive and the wines are exceptional. We began our dinner by stating the characteristics in wine that we preferred and one of the owners walked us through several wine tastings until we found the one we liked best. Our monstrous platter came out and exceeded any expectations anyone could have of charcuterie or cheese (and the homemade jams were absolutely incredible). Once we finished our first generous glass of wine we began tastings again until we chose a second glass. The owners again walked us through wines based on our individual preferences in such a thorough matter—it was a delight. We were remarkably full after our wine and platter. My friend decided to buy a couple bottles of wine to bring home. As we chatted with the owners he brought out a bottle of Port to end the meal of which he gifted us the rest of the bottle to take back to our hotel to enjoy. I would make a trip back to Lisbon even if just to have another meal at BA Wine Bar.
