This green wine route of Ponte de Lima is one of the nine sub-regions that make up this demarcated region. Extending practically throughout the natural region between the rivers Douro and Minho, the Demarcated Region of Vinhos Verdes produces wines that occupy a prominent position among Portuguese wines, due to their different characteristics.The excellent freshness and lightness of the Vinho Verde, with delicate fruity or floral notes, make it an unbeatable option as an aperitif. At the table, Vinhos Verdes are the perfect choice to marry light and elegant dishes from contemporary cuisine. Salads, fish, seafood, white meats, vegetables, pasta and risottos are the classic partners of Vinho Verde. Clams in the Cataplana, Mussels Gratin, Fresh Mushroom Salad, Smoked Salmon, Oven Slice, Roast Octopus, Duck Breast and Sushi or Sashimi always ask for a White-Green Wine.
