Why You Need To Get The Wines of Vinho Verde In Your Life


For the past year or so, since an eye opening trade tasting last year, I’ve had a soft spot for the wines of Vinho Verde.  It’s Portugal’s largest and most northern wine region, sitting between the Spanish border to the north, and the famous Douro Valley to the south.  For many years now wine drinkers round the world have a set picture of what the wines of Vinho Verde are: spritzy, acidic, light, white wines.  But scratch the surface a bit more and you’ll find some real belters!
