Wine Down

Saturday, July 11, 2009

I have found a great new wine - Casal Garcia Vinho Verde from Portugal. It is a fresh, light-bodied white wine. It also has a slight sparkling quality. I think it is the perfect wine to drink on a hot summer night. I read about it on Slashfoods - they had a post about wines to drink when you are grilling. Here is what they said about the wine:

"Summer Appetizer Wine: Vinho Verde
I buy this wine by the case throughout the summer. Not only is it affordable, it's light, crisp and perfect for hot summer nights. Vinho Verde is a very common wine in Portugal and its semi-sparkling characteristic raises eyebrows at the first sip. Try pairing it with my Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Peaches."

The best thing about this wine is that it was only $7 at World Market!
