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.

  • Casa Senhorial Do Reguengo Medium Dry Vinho Verde

    Snoothrank:

    Honeyed melon aromas with white grape and peach. This is bright and fresh with soft bubbles and good acidity. There's a hint of sweetness here on the palate and floral notes with ripe fresh fruit, mostly melon, peach and lemon and a nice soft finish. Read More

  • Sara - A decent less expensive way might be to consider Vinho Verdes from Portugal.  Full of citrus notes and slightly effervescent it's a great party and opening wine.  $8 - $11(A note - If you've Heard of the Simply brand of Lemonade, we've come up with a mix that includes Vinho Verde and the Simply Lemonade/Raspberry.)                        ...

  • Caiua a Noite NV

    Snoothrank:

    Not a good as other versions but good non-the-less. Here to is a wonderfully citrussy wine that will pour well on a whatever day of the week, any time of the year day. Juicy acidity and stoney citrus fruit makes this a wonderful compliment to fish, chicken and whatever you want to drink it with. 87 points Read More

  • If you can include French, you can get your distributor's rep to bring some ... for well under $20.  Vinho Verde in the summer from Broadbent or a number of other makers can be under $10. I'm focusing on things that a large distributor is likely to have.  Nothing mentioned above is particularly boutique-y, but it does require that the distribut...

  • 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.
