DRINK. Vinho Verde does not mean “green” wine as one might initially think. Verde refers to it being a young wine as the wines are released three to six months after harvest. How do you distinguish these wines? The wines of Vinho Verde have long been known for their vibrant fruit, low alcohol and refreshing qualities, a combination that makes them one of the most versatile partners with food. Vinho Verde is an ideal wine pairing for salads, seafood and Asian cuisine, and can be served alone or as an aperitif. Wines of Portugal exports to over 100 countries, with the U.S. being the second-largest consumer. Want to experience the true Portugal wine experience? Consider visiting in December which is offseason. It’s a perfect time to leisurely explore the wine region and meet the producers in their own homes and vineyards. Even if you can’t schedule a trip, pick up a bottle and enjoy Portugal vicariously as you sip!
DRINK TOO. Try some amazing Rose this summer! Rosé wines from the beautiful Ultimate Provence and Chateau de Berne estates in Provence are light, crisp and refreshing!
