IN PRAISE OF THE ORIGINAL VINHO VERDE

This summer I’ve been touting the virtues of single grape variety Vinho Verdes, but now I’d like to remind you of the humble original – the slightly fizzy, low alcohol edition that’s the very best gulper for alfresco and party drinking. Every time I have a glass (no, make that a bucket) of Aveleda’s wine I’m reminded of how I described the wine many moons ago – adult lemonade. Certainly one of the world’s great ‘fun’ wines. Enjoy it before the summer ends.
