Born in a coastal region, characterized by fruity and floral aromas, Vinho Verde wines have the perfect level of acidity, providing a long-lasting sensation of harmony in the mouth. This produces what we might call the perfect combination, as a result of three essential factors: the natural conditions of the region where it is produced, the indigenous grape varieties and the ancient art of vine growing and winemaking. Vinho Verde is a diverse region that produces many different types of wine: White, Rosé or Red, Sparkling or Spirits. Whether blended or single grape variety, dry or sweet, still or sparkling, floral or fruity, all of them have one thing in common: their authenticity and fresh flavor. The Vinho Verde region was demarcated in 1908 and is considered to be one of the oldest regions in Portugal. It spans the Atlantic facing north east of Portugal, across the region traditionally known as “Entre-Douro e Minho”. The maximum altitude in the region is 700 meters and the climate is normally mild. Soils are mostly granite. These very distinct wines are the result of the indigenous grape varieties that have always been preserved and cultivated in the Vinho Verde region, 47 local grape varieties can be found here.
