Vinho Verde for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
An early start yesterday to catch the 6.15am plane to Oporto! Kicked off a day of Vinho Verde tasting in the city tasting medal winners from the Best of Vinho Verde Awards before heading up to the pretty granite hewn town of Melgaco (pictured) for an Alvarinho focus at the Solar do Alvarinho. Dinner with Vinho Verde guru Anselmo Mendes ended a perfect day. My appetite for Vinho Verde, especially Alvarinho is even keener! This morning off to Afros in the Vinho Verde sub-region of Lima who are working biodynamically, then Casa de Cello. The Douro tomorrow. Some appetising tasting notes to follow.
