Learn by Drinking!
“The best way to learn is by drinking wine!” exclaimed consultant Thiem Ly. Though some might feel this to be a controversial opinion, in this particular case, we at Flow Wine Group feel it’s dead on accurate. Late last year and into mid 2017, Flow Wine Group helped to certify many wine aficionado scholars in the complexity of the fruits of Vinho Verde. In conjunction with Benson Marketing group, we hosted 20 educational seminars around the US in major cities for FWG wine lovers to regarding Vinho Verde wines. And… by educational we mean down right wine drinking fun! The FWG wine lovers went through 5 different type of wines, commenting on color, taste, aroma, and bonding over good times, all with Vinho Verde. Question? Do you know Vinho Verde? Yes…? Before you quickly google, or ask Siri, it’s OK if you don’t. We polled many of our attendees, who deeply LOVE wine (especially from what we saw as empty bottles started amassing) and found that many didn’t know too much about Vinho Verde wines. Luckily Flow Wine Group is here to bring that exposure. This winetastic exposure might have made for a rough night for an attendee or two.
So… You ask, what the heck is Vinho Verde? OK here… taken from a quick blurb directly from http://winesofvinhoverde.com/vinho-verde-101/ , “Vinho Verde is Portugal’s largest wine region, with 19,000 grape growers farming over 51,000 acres of vineyards. 600 wine bottlers produce approximately 85 million liters of Vinho Verde each year, of which 86% is white wine. The region also produces smaller amounts of red, rosé and sparkling wine as well as brandy.” Wow, Portugal! How exotic, huh? And for those who do not know what Portugal is, we might not be able to help you. For those who do, you have to try these wines. “The wines of Vinho Verde have long been known for their vibrant fruit, low alcohol and refreshing qualities — a combination that makes them one of the most versatile partners with food.”
Now you’re asking, “How do I get some?” or “Where can I find a tasting of my own?”. I’m glad you asked. Email us here or simply go to our Tastings Page to find our local tastings near you.
