About this wine
What people love about a Vinho Verde is the smiles that come once you've had your first mouthful. The Adega de Monção brings a bigger smile than most, with white flowers on the nose and peaches washed across the tongue.
This is wine of it's region. The vines live in view of the Atlantic, and much like a long distance love, the passion is found when you can finally bring the two together. A bottle with light seafood is a delight. An easy way to create a delicious evening in.
