The Vinho Verde region is finally being recognised as the wonderfully diverse area that it is. With consumers looking for lighter wines that excite and satisfy, the company Viniverde fits the bill perfectly. It is a holding company founded in 2008 dedicated to the production, commercialization and marketing of diversified DOC “Vinhos Verdes” wines.
Adega Ponte da Barca, the principal Viniverde shareholder has more than 50 years of experience and it is where Viniverde has its headquarters and operations centre. They possess amazing knowledge producing Vinhos Verdes with the grapes coming from Lima sub-region. These grapes used in producing their wines allow young, aromatic, light and fresh wines with globally unique characteristics. The consistency and high quality of their wines have led to many awards and they include the single grape variety wines – Loureiro, Alvarinho and Vinhão.
This Vinho verde is made from the traditional premium grape Alvarinho from the classical sub-region (Monção) by the Spanish border. A dry wine with tropical fruit, complexity and power.
The slightly higher alcohol content helps balance its zesty acidity and green apple flavours. It has the power to balance strong food and make fresh seafood explode with flavour.
Try as an aperitif or with fish and chips, seafood, oily fish, roast pork and Japanese yakatori.
