The Green Valley (2/16)

Portugal is, of course, already well-known forits port produced in the Douro Valley. However, in a small region nearby– known locally as the Green Valley – a different kind of wine is produced: “green wine.” While I couldn’t tell you the exact technicalities of the wine production myself, what I can tell you is that this slightly effervescent wine ranges from a straw color to as light green with a creamy to flowery finish – incredibly refreshing and distinct! The grape cultivation, harvest, and processing differ for green wine, and most producers are small, family-owned operations with an organic or even biodynamic vineyard.
