Review of Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde 2008

Happy Hour: Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde 2008

If you've never tried Portugal's most famous white, Vinho Verde, I suggest you sample Quinta da Aveleda's 2008 Vinho Verde. Literally translated, Vinho Verde means "green wine," but the name doesn't refer to the grapes, rather the fact that the wine is consumed young.

Voted one of Wine & Spirits top 100 wines of 2009, the Quinta da Aveleda is a lush slightly effervescent white that has a pale amber color and crisp finish. Its fruity and mildly grassy taste would pair wonderfully with seafood. At just $7.99 a bottle the price is right for experimenting with a new wine and unfamiliar region.

Have you sipped Vinho Verde? What did you think?

I love vinho verde! It's so refreshing in the summer and it's normally really affordable.
