A Winning Portuguese White


It’s difficult to explain the experience in Portuguese wines, but I’ve just tasted a white and red that reminded me of classic bistro wines from France. Similar but different of course. I invite you to explore.

VINHO VERDE THAT FEELS LIKE CHABLIS: I’m perfectly happy with the $9 Vino Verde experience, but I also like to indulge in the region’s other offerings. For the extra cost, Casal Ventozela delivers the elevated feeling you get in a modern space with expensive finishes ““ ceramic tile over synthetic. Energy and tension from low yielding grapes express the minerality of the soil. The reason people pay $25 for Chablis ““ yours for $15 from Portugal.

P.S. With care, you can remove the ugly “˜medal’ sticker, and enjoy the beautifully simple label.
