This is a fizzy lifter! Vinho Verdes flaunt a touch of sparkle that makes them among the cheeriest wines in existence. But for a green wine, this is surely dark. That’s because Vinhao is a teinturier, a grape with dark flesh. Despite the color, the wine is light and zippy, with dried cherries, cranberries, and even a touch of pomegranate that make this a good pair with chicken pilaf, gazpacho, or the Park on a warm afternoon. Vera’s white Vinho Verde has been a great favorite at Pour, and their rosé is sure to follow suit!
