Plural: vinhos verdes
Description: "Green wine." Fresh, light, fruity dry wines (either red, white or rosť) from north western Portugal. Vinho verde is made from unripened grapes: faintly sparkling and acid in taste, it is very refreshing and has a low alcohol content. The whites are more popular than reds, but both should be drunk young and chilled.
