This is the red version of Vinho Verde. Known for their gulpable, casual, likeable style, wines from this Portuguese region are meant to be drunk fresh, often, and with copious amounts of seafood and light bites.  A slight fizz keeps this wine dancing on the tongue. The plush red fruit will make you salivate for more. Throw this bottle on ice and enjoy with friends!

Delicious With

Go traditional with seafood or mix it up with BBQ, aged cheeses like cheddar and gouda, meatballs, or hotdogs. This one is especially good with corn dogs 😋

Their Cred

Márcio Lopes studied as an engineer, but cut his winemaking teeth working for two years with Vinho Verde master Anselmo Mendes in Melgaço. He then traveled to Australia where he made wine in Rutherglen and Tasmania, another cool climate region. He returned to Portugal in 2010 to start his own projects, including Pequeños Rebentos in Vinho Verde. In 2016 he started to vinify the local varietal, Loureiro. His winemaking is low intervention, he ferments using natural yeasts, and he believes that if the fruit is good enough he will make quality wines with balance that reflect his terroir without any other additions. This is clearly working - his wines are distinctively fresh and vibrant, showing bright and clean and crispy.
