Go al Fresco this Summer with Famega White Vihno Verde

Vinho Verde, pronounced veeng-yo vaird, doesn’t mean “green” wine. Verde refers to the young age of the wine, typically released 3-6 months after harvest, and in this case, just in time for patio parties and backyard barbecues.  Famega Vinho Verde is a slightly fizzy pour of refreshing lemon-lime flavor. Its bright, clean finish pairs well with Skagit summer salads and local seafood.
