Vinho Verde Fest Braga 2016

Vinho Verde is only produced in the northwest of Portugal. It is impossible to make it in any other part of the world. This wine characterizes by its lightness and softness, freshness, a slight acidity and is lower in alcohol. It is a wine whose best qualities show when it is still young, unlike the old saying “the older it gets, the better it becomes”.
It is superb in the Summer, it goes well with fish, seafood, white meat and salads.
