    Our wines and beverages

    Our selection, which has been prepared by wine lovers and experts from Portugal (Maria João de Almeida, Rui Falcão, Pedro Garcias, Luís Antunes and Fernando Melo) and Brazil (Ricardo Castilho, Marcelo Copello and Dânio Braga), reflects the quality, richness and choice of Portuguese grape varieties.

    Their experience was the key to making sure that our wine list expressed the quality of Portuguese wines, and is one more reason that your trip will be pleasant and memorable.

    We also serve fruit juices, coffee, including espresso, and a variety of teas.

    TAP may limit or ban alcohol consumption on board. It is forbidden to bring drinks on to the aircraft (except those purchased in the airport Duty Free).
