Vidigal 2020 Vinho Verde

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.
  • 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 Neuparth.
About the Wine
  • Unique in the category as this example is bone dry and vintaged.
  • A slight spritz makes this fun and refreshing. Also low alchohol for those looking to cut back.
  • Vidigal was recently The New York Times/Eric Asimov’s most highly recommended Vinho Verde!
