Casa Santos Lima was created to ensure the continuous development of Santos Lima’s wine producing activity created several generations ago. This activity was first started by Joaquim Santos Lima, who, by the turn of 19th century, was already a great producer and exporter of Portuguese wines. Maria João Santos Lima and José Luís Santos Lima Oliveira da Silva, granddaughter and great grandson of the founder, relaunched Casa Santos Lima in 1990, replanting most of the vines, improving agricultural techniques and modernizing all its productive structure.

The "Lisbon Vineyard Park" was created after the establishment of a protocol between the Municipal Council of the City of Lisbon and Casa Santos Lima, as a part of a strategy of investment and growth of the biodiversity and organization of the city of Lisbon green areas. This park, located right next to the Lisbon's Airport (Aeroporto Humberto Delgado), also has a high pedagogical interest as it serves to promote wine culture in general and the status of Lisbon as an excellent wine producing Region.
In this vineyard, around 2 hectares of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Arinto grapes were planted on clay and limestone soils. This a unique space of the capital of Portugal where great soil characteristics and sun exposition conditions are combined, allowing its visitors to have a close experience with the vineyards’ life cycle.
