The famous Portuguese wine producer José Maria da Fonseca, recently opened its first flagship store in Lisbon, at Rua das Flores in Chiado. The space combines a wine store with a wine bar, where the clients can enjoy their drinks accompanied with traditional snacks.

The shop's project was developed by architect Tiago Silva Dias, who covered the whole round ceiling with 3200 empty bottles. This became the main element of the space and creates an impressive green corridor atop the area where the long wood balcony stands. 

Several references to the history of the wine company can be found in the By The Wine store: in the variety of wines presented, and also photographs as well as vintage elements, such as a pile of iconic old wine barrels with the JMF logo.
