Vinho Verde

Vinho Verde is a Portuguese wine whose name translates literally to “Green Wine”. This refers more to its youthful freshness than to its color. It may have a slight green tinge. Vinho Verdes are light, fresh and intended to be consumed within a year. With a small amount of CO2 gas added at bottling, they have a slight “fizz” or “frizzante”. This little bit of sparkle makes the wine even more refreshing and festive. A perfect summer sipper...

Vinho Verde can be made from any or a combination of 25 grape varieties. It has a natural acidity that pairs well with light or slightly oily dishes. The aromas can go from fruity to floral. Colors tend to yellow or straw colored. The alcohol content is about 9-11%. This is a food friendly wine or can be enjoyed by itself.

Vinho Verde may come from any of 9 regions, imparting slight differences to the wines. Experiment with several labels. Take notes and a few favorites will emerge. The possibilities are endless and this wine is budget friendly!
