Food Pairings for Vera Vinho Verde Portugal
In 2010, long-time friends Rui Abecassis and Bruce Scheider scoured the northern Portugal countryside with the intent of creating an exceptional Vinho Verde. Their search led them to select blocks of Casa do Valle's main estate vineyard, where the vines are between 10 and 15 years old and grow on granitic sandy loam at an average elevation of 300 meters. They were greatly impressed by the terroir and the quality of the grapes, so they enlisted Luis Duarte, one of Portugal's most respected producers, to create their ideal vision of Vinho Verde.Composed of 60% Arinto, 30% Azal and 10% Loureiro, Vera Vinho Verde offers bright, refreshing notes of lemon, lime and grapefruit, with a strong mineral backbone. Balanced flavors and crisp acidity allow it to pair well with a variety of light entrees such as sushi, chicken, salad and pasta.
