Varietal Focus: Vinho Verde

Vinho Verde

Vinho Verde is the DOC of the Minho region of Portugal.  This northern most
region is cooler with rainy climates with strong Atlantic influences.  The blend for Vinho Verde tends to be a combination of Loureiro Trajadura (Treixadura), Avesso, Pedernã (Arinto), and/or the Alvarinho.

Very light in color and alcohol, it is always citrus driven with refreshing effervescence.

Great food wine. Pairs especially well with seafood, shellfish and salads.
