In Vino Veritas 2014. Vinho Verde!

Posted by Jlm Van Bergen on 5/29/2014 to Wine Tasting
I've been to Portuguese wine tastings before, one at a high-end wine store in Manhattan where I found the vinho verde choices just not quite to my personal liking at that moment. I hoped to fare better at this one, a knew at least I'd bring one that I enjoyed. The day of the tasting came and we found ourselves around a table with five bottles of vinho verde, from five different manufacturers, several of which cost under $10. They were quite different in style, some were lighter in color, body, and depth while others had some savory notes and a more yellow hue instead of the pale green I've come to associate with them. Not all the wines were sparkling/carbonated, and interestingly enough as a group we all seemed to choose different bottles as our favorite of the set. The tasting process became a great overview of a variance of style and flavors, which was very interesting. My apologies for the lack of specific individual reviews, I was determined to actually enjoy this tasting and not make it "work", so I left my notes for the next tasting, and am sharing only the overview today. Most importantly at his tasting, everyone found a wine (or three) they liked and enjoyed. For most of the group, it was their first time tasting this delicious and refreshing treat just in time for summer. For all of us, it was a great time with friends, trying something new and exciting, learning and enjoying, and having a wonderful summer evening.
