More about this wine from Portugal
This wine is a clear example of American students studying abroad in Europe and then coming back home and demanding every wine shop carry this Portuguese summer speciality. Vinho Verde is a fancy sounding wine that is actually very affordable, value driven and the unsung "it's too damn hot" hero for your next pool party. This version is a blend of three indigenous varietals that are way too hard to pronounce, but are picked individually and make for a balanced wine between the rich fruit and natural acidity.

The term 'green,' or 'verde' in Vinho Verde, does not refer to its color but the fact that it is a young wine. And like most fresh, summer wines these bottles are meant to be opened now.
