For something like Vinho Verde but with a bit more of an intense flavor, take a look at Spain’s Txakoli, or Txakolina, or Chacoli.
It’s pronounced “Chock- o- lee” and is another spritzy, lemon and mineral flavored white perfect for whiling away the hours as the kids play.
Typically, Txakoli runs between 9.5% and 10.5% alcohol and is delightfully fresh and fun. Usually served with tapas, it’s the perfect wine for light snacks like chicken nuggets, pigs in a blanket, or tater tots!
