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.

  • 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

  • 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.
