Wines That Rock: Vinho Verde - The Endless Summer Wine

It has been a very long, very hot summer. Balmy, humid, its been simultaneously a joy as it has been unbearable. You battle between constant desires to celebrate and to just cool down. If only there was a wine made for the endless summer, a wine that makes you happy and quenches your thirst like no other wine can. In fact, quenches your thirst like no other drink can. Well, except maybe lemonade, or limeade.

Oh wait! Of course there is! You just have to know what you are looking for, and in Vinho Verde you have the answer. Something both just a little sweet, just a little dry, bitter enough to quench your thirst and light enough that you can keep drinking it all way. On a hot night, or a hot day, nothing can make you happier. Maybe a little Jamiroquai blasting some funk into your ears, singing about sunny June, Canned Heat, and how much you love your new summer crush with just a little L. 

So makes Vinho Verde so pleasant, so cool? What makes Vinho Verde a wine that rocks? Its a blend of Portuguese white grapes, mostly Alvarinho (Albarino) itself a pretty trendy fucking wine. But not always, which makes Vinho Verde quite interesting. It may have Arinto, Trajadura, Loureiro, or whatever else grows in the region. You just put it all together, several grapes in one, have some fun, make some music and boom! We got ourselves a record. Its funky, it rocks, and can be as playful as the aforementioned Jamiroquai or as energetic as Red Hot Chilli Peppers going full tilt. Its a celebration of sun, fun, and good times. It just makes you feel good.

The best part of Vinho Verde, is whether you are a wine snob, or a wine noob the heat has a way of bringing us all to the same level. Vinho Verde is a great wine that just cuts through all that bullshit, its got all the flavors you can analyze for days if you want to, but if you just want to shut up and drink to cool off and have fun Vinho Verde is there. Love it, share it, Vinho Verde is a real wine that rocks.
