Well it's about time we had a Vinho Verde in the shop. You've all been asking for it for literal years now and, finally, it makes an appearance. Let's find out what it's all about, shall we?
Quintas do Homem is one of those estates that immediately captivates you with its charm, its passion and dynamism.
Nuno and his father, Antonio, work the vines of their two vineyards, Quinta do Veiga and Quinta do Paço, where they grow predominately Loureiro and Arinto. Ana, their long term winemaker, is a fierce taskmaster, demanding quality fruit that enables her to deliver the pure, fine and elegant Vinho Verdes that Nuno expects.
It's very much a family exercise with Nuno and his father working the vineyards, Nuno's mother preparing delicious, traditional Portuguese dishes for visitors and Ana, almost a family member, making sure the wines are always perfect.

100% Loureiro, this wine is a bright citrus colour, full of fine floral and fruity aromas. Fresh and elegant in the mouth with well balanced acidity.
This is going to be a staple of ours for sure. Absolutely beautiful. Cheers!
