Virgin Wines - The (Summery) Whites

Two summery whites from Virgin wines

 If you want expressive, well-made summery wines, these two from Virgin wines are great examples.

The Vinho Verde is a classic, fresh, maritime wine from two native Portuguese varieties - Loureiro and Arinto; the Brio is a northern Italian Pinot Grigio with bags of flavour and personality; it has the body stand up to even quite strong foods such as curry.

Quintas do Homem Domum Vinho Verde 2016 (£10.99) zesty, zippy citrus with melon and lime; fresh, mineral and poised.


Drink as an aperitif or match with seafood, such as grilled mackerel with garlic.

Brio Pinot Grigio 2015 (£8.49) fresh apple and ripe pear with citrus freshness and minerality; characterful, clean and substantial.

Good - and  good value.

Drink as an aperitif; a versatile food wine, it will match with most white meats and fish and will even stand up to stronger foods like chili and curry.
