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.
