Hailing from the Minho region of northwest Portugal, Vinho Verde is bright, light, and slightly effervescent. The white version is likely the most familiar, but this rosé is a fantastically refreshing addition to your warm weather wine lineup! Quinta da Lixa is a modern winery committed to bringing Vinho Verde to a new level of quality. Started in 1986 by the Meireles family and Carlos Teixeira, they have quickly become one of the most successful wineries in the region, growing their grapes sustainably with respect for the environment. This rosé is a blend of native Portuguese varietals: 60% espadeiro, and 40% touriga nacional. Lightly spritzy, it delivers energetic bursts of cherry blossom, strawberry, and white peach, finishing clean and zesty with a squeeze of blood orange; at 10.5% alcohol by volume, it easily refreshes all day long.
