Profile

Description

Portuguese wines are having a long-overdue moment in the spotlight, so we're excited to share not one, but two fantastic bottles from Douro-based cooperative Lavradores de Feitoria. Comprised of 15 families, all with deep roots in Portugal's winemaking history, the cooperative pools their know-how along with their estate-farmed grapes to make authentic expressions of the Douro's unique terroir. The Estrada white is a blend of no fewer than five grape varieties, the majority of which are indigenous to Portugal: Viosinho, Gouveio, Moscatel, Arinto, and Fernão Pires. If your only exposure to Portuguese white wines is Vinho Verde, this is a great introduction to the varied styles that exist in this beautiful country. Serve at about 10 C and enjoy over the next 2-3 years.

Pairing

Match with a savoury caramelized leek tart, cream of mushroom soup, or crispy roast chicken legs with garlic mashed potatoes.
