Chiado/Bairro Alto - wine bars? wine shops?

I am staying in an apartment in the Chiado/Bairro Alto areas this weekend. I've never been to Portugal, and I would like to sample wines, especially port. Can anyone recommend a wine bar in the neighborhood where a single female traveler would feel comfortable drinking wine and eating small plates/tapas/cheeses? Also, I would like to purchase some port for friends, especially white/blonde port. Any recommendations on wine shops in the area?

A great wine/food spot is Artis Bar in Barrio Alto. I am from CA and was in Lisbon for Spring Break. I ate ther twice. The food is great and wine is even better. Ask the servers about local area wine. They have good product on hand. For great port try 20 year Tawny Ports, Ferreira and Ramos Pinto (found in any wine store) are two of the best. A little costly, though.

If you want to sample Porto wine go to "Solar do Vinho do Porto" that's the place and it's at Bairro Alto, it's dedicated to Porto wine only www.ivdp.pt/pagina.asp?idioma=1&codPag=169&

To sample red or white wines go to ViniPortugal wine tasting room at Terreiro do Paço (Tuesday to Saturday), http://www.viniportugal.pt/SalasOgivais

A different wine bar that it's interesting to visit is http://www.chafarizdovinho.com/en/index.htm

In respect to buy wine my recomendation is, go to a supermarket (example "Jumbo" at Amoreiras shopping center) you'll find there good wines (red, white, Porto, etc) and much cheaper than the wine shops.

64novpt - What is the location of Amoreiras SC? We are staying Av Liberdade and would like to purchase some wine for the room and for our upcoming river cruise.

Thanks

If you go up till Marquês de Pombal, on the left there's Rua Joaquim António de Aguiar (very steep), at the very top it's Amoreiras SC.

If you put "Amoreiras Shopping Center, Avenida Engenheiro Duarte Pacheco, Lisboa" on Google maps it will show it.

I'd recommend this one https://www.facebook.com/winespotchiado and is just next door of Fábulas which is a great place for a light meal or a drink. They have an open terrace if you wish to enjoy it outdoor.
