Vinho Verde comes from a small region in Northern Portugal known for its super-value whites, reds, and rosés. These wines are loved for mouth-zapping acidity, subtle spritz, and lower alcohol, making them a great choice for the spring and summer.
The vast majority of Vinho Verde wines are white. Six grapes (you’ve probably never heard of) dominate the regional blend: Alvarinho, Arinto, Azal, Avesso, Loureiro, and Trajadura. Vinho Verde wines range slightly in style, mostly dry, and have green fruit notes.
The Azevedo is a blend of Loureiro and Alvarinho the spritz in this wine is a little more subdued than usual and this makes for a fantastically easy going and fresh wine. On our multiple trips to Portugal we often have sat at the bar or restaurant enjoying the simplicity of Vinho Verde and so it is great for us to find the Azevedo to dream of long summer nights in Lisbon.
