Vinho Verde Wine

This region in northern Portugal is known for its dry, refreshing, low alcohol and lightly spritzy wines that are consumed very young, a.k.a. “green wine.” It lies north of the Port region, bordering Spain’s Galicia, along the Atlantic Coast (another reason for its name, this is sometimes known as the Costa Verde, or “Green Coast”). The soils there are mostly granite and slate, with the majority of the vineyards grown in granite. This is the mirror opposite of the nearby Douro where slate is preferred over granite. 

Most of the best wines are made from Alvarinho, the same as Spain’s Albariño. However, there are many other indigenous grapes that are also used, including Loueiro, Trajadura, Azal and Pederna.

  • Boy, good luck.  I have had Txakoli only twice in my life.  Last ... ... idea is to try Portuguese Vinho Verde.  Another excellent seafood wine that has more of the Txakoli characteristics--low alcohol, very dry, crisp.Good luck. &nbs Read More

(they make the best selling Vinho Verde, which is not bad, either).  I really wanted a straight Touriga Nacional to try.  Here's the funny thing:  They make a blend with Touriga Nacional and Cabernet and it's a couple bucks cheaper!  Suggests they think the Touriga i...

    Snoothrank:

    Delicious white wine. So refreshing with notes of lime, grapefruit peel and peach pits. Crisp and clean with a nice acidic finish. Goes great with shrimp. Such a steal for $6.99. I'm going to stock up on this one for next summer Read More

  • It's an inexpensive one and only applies to UKers, but Sainsbury's Vinho Verde is amazing and a steal at only £3.70. Light, pleasant, off dry, but not too sweet.
