MY OLD FAVOURITE SUMMER REFRESHER GETS A NEW LOOK
Cannot believe I haven’t posted a Vinho Verde wine this summer. But maybe the gods were telling me to wait for the newly designed Aveleda. This long-time favourite is not only looking better but comes in a drier, more refreshing style. Tingly, slight spritzy and at ten percent alcohol it’s perfect for patio/party guzzling.
AVELEDA 11 Vinho Verde, Portugal 5322 $8.95
P.S. A visit to Aveleda is a must if you ever get to northern Portugal for the garden/woodland grounds and fairy tale cottages.
P.P.S. You may find a Vinho Verde promotion at your favourite restaurant in August. For details see www.winesofvinhoverdecanada.
