Vinho Verde & Vini Veronesi
Join us on a journey to discover the wines from Vinho Verde (Portugal) and Vini Veronesi (Italy). Two well established yet sometimes underappreciated regions that produce wines in many exciting styles, some of them absolutely unforgettable.
Vini Veronesi, literally wines from Verona area, is a common definition that identifies 15 PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) wines. They are produced in a large area spreading around Verona, its main city, over 28,500 hectares of vineyards. The wines are made in a wide range of styles including dry, sweet, white, rosé, red, even sparkling.
Vinho Verde is the biggest PDO of Portugal, up in the cool, rainy, verdant north-west. The vines grow along rivers that flow from the mountains of the east to burst out into the ocean between golden surfing beaches. There are nine sub-regions to the PDO. Vinho Verde is best known for its white wines that can be relied upon to be light, crisp and aromatic, often with a light prickle of fizz.
We will taste eight wines, to discover how climate, grape variety and winemaking techniques are reflected in the style and quality of the wines from these two historic regions.
