Vinho Verde: The Secrets of a Unique White Wine & its Stunning Region

Posted by Nisa Duarte on 28-Mar-2016 14:47:41

I have got to be honest with you, I am writing this blog post drinking a glass of some fine fresh delightful vinho verde, and about it I am just going to say TWO things. One, I really am enjoying it and …TWO, I am truly sorry I cannot tell you which particular Wine I am having the pleasure to be tasting right now!  You see, we represent many excellent Wine producers and we do not want you to think less of all the others!

What we can guarantee that it is not just vinho verde, that is refreshing and amusing, the wine region that draw its name from it is also surprisingly refreshing and delightful. Many refer to Portuguese vinho verde as the perfect wine for day drinking, others highlight its singular freshness and fun character which makes it the best wine for spring and summer time. But in my opinion this wine tastes like spring and summer…that fantastic feeling when birds are singing, the sun is shining and inviting for so many activities and amusing outdoor experiences! And that’s why Wine Tourism in Portugal designed a tour that will turn you a vinho verde connoisseur and enthusiast of the Region that produces this unique white wine.

Carmo's Boutique Hotel, an Authentic Experience by Nelson Carvalheiro

Posted by Nelson Carvalheiro on 13-Oct-2015 16:20:00

Carmo’s Boutique Hotel is located in a very rural area of northern Portugal, 5 km from Ponte de Lima. The warm hospitality of the people in this region is well known and their "back to Portuguese roots" way of welcoming guests is something I’ve always appreciated. The hotel was nominated in 2013 by the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler as one of the best new hotels in the world. With all this in mind I gladly spent a sunny weekend at the end of winter at Carmos Boutique Hotel.

Complete Guide to the Vinho Verde Wine Region - Where to Taste Wine

Posted by Wine Tourism in Portugal on 02-Sep-2015 11:30:00

Before letting you know where to taste some of the best wines from the Vinho Verde Region, let me ask you something: do you know why these wines are called Vinho Verde (Green Wine)? It has nothing to do with its colour, not even with the luxurious green landscapes of the region. It's beacuse it is a wine that is realeased young and fresh, being the perfect pair for the warm days.
