Vidigal Vinho 2017 Regional Lisboa
- Vidigal is a medium-sized winery in the center of Portugal near the town of Leiria
- The winery focuses on flavorful, value-driven wines from the regions of Dão, Lisboa, and Vinho Verde
- Owner António Lopes is as hands-on as they come, and spends most of his time side by side in the cellar with his two winemakers Antonio Ventura and Rafael Neubarth
About the Wine
- This was one of the first Reserve level wines to be made in the Lisboa DOC and a wine that served in encouraging other producers to give this emerging subregion more serious attention.
- We can’t think of a more authentic choice for a Portuguese “house” pour…the only difference being that this has way more depth of flavor than what you’d typically find at one of the many tascas dotting Lisbon’s crowded streets.
- Soil type for the vineyard is clay mixed with limestone.
