The Wine Grapes Loureiro
With a culture area in great expansion, because it produces much appreciated white wines by the consumers, it seems that the Loureiro grape originated in the valley of the River Lima.
The name in Portuguese "Loureiro" means "laurel" or "bay" and the aroma of Loureiro wines is said to resemble that of laurel flowers, also orange blossom, acacia and lime blossom, overlaying apple, peachy fruit. Loureiro wines usually have refreshing, well-balanced acidity.
Loureiro is much in evidence nowadays bottled as a single variety
It is a very vigorous, high-yielding variety that has only recently been recognized as "noble". The bunches are elongated and relatively compact, bearing medium-sized, yellowish-greenish grapes.
Loureiro is a light-skinned variety grown mainly in the north of Portugal and used to make the popular white Vinho Verde wines of the Minho region. It's also grown in smaller amounts in Galicia, just across the Spanish border to the north. Here it is called Loureira, and is used in the white wines of Rias Baixas, often blended with the district's pre-eminent grape variety, Albariño, of which it is thought to be a relative.
Highly productive, this grape variety produces wines with a distinctive aroma, harmonious and flavourous.

The Vinho Verde
Its vibrant freshness, elegance, lightness and aromatic and flavorful expressions, especially its fruity and floral notes, are the characteristics that define and differentiate Vinho Verde.
Exclusively produced in the demarcated region of Vinho Verde in northwestern Portugal, it is only produced from the indigenous grape varieties of the region, preserving its typicity of aromas and flavors as unique in the world of wine.
Vinho Verde is not a grape variety; it is a DOC for the production of wine. The name literally means "green wine," but translates as "young wine".
The slight effervesce of the wine came from malolactic fermentation taking place in the bottle. In winemaking this is usually considered a wine fault but Vinho Verde producers found that consumers liked the slightly fizzy nature.
This wine Loureiro pairs very well with fish and seafood. And in a hot day it’s a fantastic wine for enjoying a glass of wine Loureiro and celebrates life.
This wine can be consumed by Vegan’s with vegetarian meals. Wine certified by The VeganSociety.
Cheers with one light fizzy Vinho Verde Loureiro…
