Thanks to our partners at MS Walker, we’ve sourced two delicious varietals that celebrate the spirit of Portuguese winemaking.
Our white selection is an Alvarinho (known as Albariño in Galicia and Spain), made from small white grapes grown in the Rías Baixas and Vinho Verde regions. Alvarinos are known for their floral and citrus aromas and fresh, fruity flavors. The award-winning producer, Quinta do Regueiro, specializes in Alvarinho, grown and produced on their small family estate.
Our red selection is a full-bodied Tinto from Dona Maria, led by acclaimed winemaker Júlio Bastos. The 18th century estate has been producing wine for over 130 years, and traditional foot treading in marble troughs (“lagares”) is still used to make many of the wines. Our sweepstakes winner will have the opportunity to dine with Júlio and tour the historic estate as part of their winnings.
