Alvarinho, Loureiro and Arinto Oh, my! - Win a trip to Portugal! Passport To Vinho Verde

With Summer giving Spring an early,and rough, shove out of the way, one of my go to wines is Vinho Verde. I love the spritzy refreshing quality and it pairs as well with snacks as afternoon gossip.

 Passport to Vinho Verde has also officially started, just in case you will be in one of these cities . Beginning May 19ththrough June 15th, They'll be hosting in-store tastings and offering specials on Vinho Verde wines at wine shops in New York, Chicago, and the Washington Metropolitan Area as part of the “Passport to Vinho Verde” promotion

Lucky invited consumers in these markets get to jump into the "spring" of things by stopping in at  these tastings to sample the various styles that this Portuguese wine region has to offer, including the lesser known indigenous white varietals like Alvarinho, Loureiro and Arinto.  Also up will be  the bright and fruity Espadeiro and; Padeiro rosés.

The full list of tasting events in those markets is here.  Attendees will also have the chance to win a trip for two to Portugal during the promotion.

Sigh. San Francisco will have to be content with our samples,
