Vingo Verde is one of the hottest wine categories in America right now. The quality coming from this important region of Portugal is creating consumer awareness of this slightly bubbly wine.
The wine regions of Portugal are plenty and anchored by the infamous Port wines. Most American consumers are not aware of the plethora of still wines being produced there, let alone the variety of styles and complexities.
In 1993, my father and I visited Vin Expo and to our surprise, because the show was so large, we were left to fend for ourselves to taste wine. During the podcast I gained concurrence from Mafalda that the still wines of Portugal had a long way to go and were quite undrinkable at the point.
Not the story today, like many wine producing countries in the world, Portugal has emerged through technology and passion, in the world of wine as a force to consider.
Have a listen to Mafalda.
