Colheita Tardia / Late Harvest

Colheita Tardia ( Late Harvest) é uma palavra que muitos já devem ter visto num rótulo de vinho. Mas o que significa? Colheita tardia, como o termo sugere, significa que as uvas foram colhidas mais tarde do que é habitual para a região e / ou variedade. As uvas são deixadas na videira mais tempo para permitir-lhes amadurecer ainda mais do que o normal, tornando-se mais rica em açúcares e sabores. Muitas uvas utilizadas na colheita tardia são afectadas por podridão nobre (Botrytis cinerea), mas isso nem sempre é o caso. Enquanto os estes vinhos são geralmente doces, podemos encontrar colheitas tardias totalmente secos e estes serão de álcool mais elevado e cheio de corpo. Sommelier Lisbon, palavras com doçura! ------------------ Late Harvest is a word that many of you may have seen on a wine label. Do you know what it means? Late harvest, as the term suggests, means that the grapes were harvested later than usual for the region and / or variety. The grapes are left on the vine longer to allow them to mature further than normal, making it more rich in sugars and flavors. Many late harvest grapes used are affected by noble rot (Botrytis cinerea), but this is not always the case. While these wines are generally sweet, we can find totally dry late harvest and these will be high in alcohol and full bodied. Sommelier Lisbon, words with sweetness!

We are a family of “wine lovers”, a space for sharing and interaction between wine producers, wine merchants, sommeliers and people who simply enjoy this magnificent nectar.


We would like to gather around our table and our wine a group of friends, from all social and professional spheres, who can share ideas and experiences around wine with us.

We started a series of initiatives, such as wine tasting, meetings with wine producers, visits to their farms and cooking workshops.


We count on your support to make Sommelier Lisbon a great Family!
