Collection: Loureiro

Loureiro is nowadays sold as a single varietal, but traditionally was used in blends with other Portuguese grapes like Alvarinho. Loureiro long suffered in reputation because the wines made from it were almost invariably quite inexpensive, and what is low in cost is rarely valued much. Vinho Verde wines were dismissively referred to as “summer sippers” or “poolside wines”. Thankfully, Vinho Verdes are getting the moment and respect they deserve.
