I first discovered this in a budget bin at a wine specialty shop. A few weeks later I read about it in a Wall Street Journal article which recommended it.
Just because the economy is bad and your income may be taking a hit doesn’t mean you can’t sip good wine this summer. One of my favorite summer whites is Casal Garcia, a portuguese “vinho verde”, which literally means green wine, which translates to young wine.
It’s made by Quinta da Aveleda, a successful family winery in Portugal.
It’s light in color and on the palate. It’s crisp without being too citrusy. It has just a bit of a fizz (It’s not sparkling). It finishes clean. And it’s only $5.99 a bottle at Kappy’s in the Greater Boston area.
Serve it chilled. And hey, at these prices, if you can’t wait for the fridge to work its magic, add a few ice cubes. I won’t tell.
