For the novice and even the casual connoisseur, sampling a new wine can almost be an intimidating prospect. But generally, a little background information makes all the difference in your ability to taste and enjoy a foreign potable. To help you out, Ted Loos has cleverly and succinctly broken down one of the most enigmatic varietals, Portugal’s Vinho Verde. Check out his article, Going Green with Vinho Verde, and if you find yourself inspired to sample, join VBT Owners, Gregg and Caroline Marston on a delightful Walking Tour of Portugal. There’ll be wonderful scenery, a few surprises along the way and, of course, ample opportunity to sample the “green” wine straight from its source.
