Meet Famega Vinho Verde. This crisp, dry, refreshing white wine, from the renowned wine-growing region of northeastern Portugal, has a delicate citrus flavor reminiscent of the fragrance of a summer garden. Long known as Portugal’s best-loved Vinho Verde, Famega is made from 100% Alvarinho grapes, almost identical to the famous Albarino grapes grown in bordering northwestern Spain.

As light and playful as a summer breeze, Famega pairs up wonderfully with your seasonal menu. It’s a delightfully refreshing accompaniment to all types of seafood, chicken, pasta, salads, pizza, sandwiches, appetizers and mild cheeses. Enjoy a glass of Famega as an aperitif, or just by itself as you savor the long, lazy days and bright nights of summer.

While its citrus essence and tinge of apple tartness make Famega big on flavor, its alcohol content of only 9.5% makes it naturally low in calories. Famega is the perfect white wine for summertime entertaining — from picnics in the park to parties on the patio to bashes at the beach.

Still relatively new to the United States, Famega Vinho Verde has already earned rave reviews from the major wine reviewing press.

The Wine Spectator called Famega “a good seafood wine with enough apple and lemon flavors to make it lively and refreshing.” The Wine Enthusiast noted its “inviting herbal aromas … and honeyed finish.” The Wall Street Journal said, “Perfect for sun and seafood. Light and refreshing, uncomplicated and fun. It’s laugh-out-loud delightful.”

The Wine & Spirits Buying Guide has named Famega Vinho Verde as a “best buy”.
