The fruit was sourced from the Vinho Verde region, which stretches from the Spanish border to south of Oporto. The vines are planted on hillsides of acid rich, granite based soils with areas of schist or slate and clay. To preserve the trademark fizz of Vinho Verde, Bartholomew ships the wines in refrigerated containers.
A fresh and spritzy white that shows zesty aromas and flavors of green apple, citrus and minerals.
White Vinho Verde is high in acidity, which makes it ideal for pairing with all forms of seafood, particularly when complimented by a rich sauce or a coating of fried breadcrumbs; pork and potato dishes are also quite common. The fact is, Vinho Verde is great by itself, but if you are looking for an affordable white wine that’s delicious with light foods and all manners of sea creatures, you’ll definitely have a perfect pairing with this crisp, bright juice.
