Upcoming New Addition to Assortment
We are very excited to announce that in 2018 Quinta de Religães will add an Alvarinho Wine to its assortment. The Alvarinho Wine is known as a light, refreshing wine with delicate aromas of fresh grapefruit and lemon. Its structure fits very well with our Loureiro and Chardonnay wines and we will also experiment with blending the different wines into an exquisite wine typical for Quinta de Religāes.
Did you know?
Did you know that the Alvarinho grape (or Albariño in Spanish) was first introduced to the Iberian Peninsula by monks in the twelfth century? Alba-rino means ‘the white of the (river) Rhine’, and most likely the grape originates from the basin of the river Rhine. Nowadays the Alvarinho grows mostly in Portugal’s Vinho Verde region.
