PRODUCER INFO
  • Vidigal is a medium-sized winery based in Leiria focused on interesting, flavorful wines from the regions of Dão, Lisboa, and Vinho Verde

ABOUT THE WINE
  • One of the rare hand-made examples of Vinho Verde you will find under $10

TASTING NOTES

Pale citrine in color with a slight greenish tinge.  Fruity aromas with tropical fruit and floral notes.  Pleasant mouth with a slight effervescence and sweetness that combines well with the natural acidity.
