Alvarino an ancient caste of unequaled quality that gives “life” to the white wines produced in the “Vinho Verde” region, specifically in the sub-region of Moncao and Melgaco. Increasingly combined with the Loureiro grape variety in the production of the White Wines, the Alvarinho grape has a unique profile: floral and fruity with notes of linden, honeysuckle, peach, grapefruit and apple, all very well harmonized with the high acidity typical of the fresh whites of northwestern Portugal.
Balanced, well-structured wines and with moderate levels of alcohol, Alvarinho is being “exported” to wine regions south of Portugal, such as the Setubal Peninsula.
