Wine Pick: Vidigal Vinho Verde 2010

Vidigal Vinho Verde

Our latest obsession: a light, crisp Vinho Verde from the Minho region of Portugal. With a touch of effervescence and a low alcohol content, this budget-friendly, pale-green wine is summer in a glass. Bring a bottle or two to a friend’s pool party or simply sip before dinner; this eminently refreshing Vinho Verde is perfect for drinking with spicy food, seafood dishes, or on its own. ($8.99)

Drink it with:

Manila Clam and Chorizo Crostini

Chilled Sorrel Soup with Jonah Crab Salad and Jerusalem Artichokes
