Reverse Wine Snob Brings Us a Taste of Rosé

Last week Reverse Wine Snob gave us an introduction to the rosés of Vinho Verde. Now he’s getting down to business and suggesting some great examples of these wines. We’re so excited to pair these rosés with a springtime. Today Reverse Wine Snob features Estreia Vinho Verde Rosé.

“This wine should be quite popular with fans of sweet rosé wines but it still retains a nice level of sophistication. Add in the low price and you’ve got a perfect porch pounder for the warm weather coming up. It ends crisp and sweet. A great way to introduce yourself and your friends to the rosé wines of Vinho Verde!”
