    Winemaker Notes

    The Conde Villar Vinho Verde is a wine appreciated for its perfect balance and harmony. Comprised of three of the most famed grape varieties of the region, Loureiro, Arinto and Trajadura, this Vinho Verde is lush, expressive, and lively; the perfect representation of the land from which it comes.

    This wine showcases clear color with a slight lemon hue. Mild tropical aromas of pineapple and mango intermingle with floral notes. The palate has a soft minerality, well balanced fruit and acidity, with a slight, pleasant effervescence.

    Pairs well with fresh seafood and marinated chicken.

    Conde Villar, Vinho Verde, Portugal
    Quinta das Arcas, which produces Conde Villar and Tapada de Villar wines, is a family owned winery that was founded in 1985 by Antonio Esteves Monteiro. The family owns significant vineyard holdings in both the DOC Vinho Verde (Minho) as well as DOC Alentejo. In the Vinho Verde region where the company is headquartered, the production is obtained from three estates, totaling more than 295 acres (120 hectares) of vineyardS. Further south, in Alentejo, the winery’s holdings included 150 acres (60 hectares) of vineyards with Portuguese and international varieties highly adapted to the region and also 75 acres (30 hectares) of olive trees. The winery also engages in cheese-making from cow’s milk produced on the estate.

    A cheerful, translucid, lemon-yellow and slightly pétillant white wine, Vinho Verde literally means ‘green wine’ and is named after the northwest Portugese region from which it originates. The ‘green’ in the name refers to the youthful state in which the wines are customarily released and consumed, not the color of the wine.

    It is typically a blend of various percentages of Alvarinho, Loureiro, Trajadura, and Pedernã (Arinto). Following initial alcoholic fermentation, a natural, secondary malolactic conversion in cask produces carbon dioxide, giving Vinho Verde its charmingly light sparkle.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
