Vinho Verde DOC is found to the north of the river Douro in Portugal in the province of Minho. The translation ‘green wine’ refers to its fresh, often under-ripe, style not its colour which is either red or almost water-white. The white wines produced there are typically light, fresh & fruity often with just a hint of spritz on the tongue. The 40 hectare Quinta da Raza estate is in Celorico de Basto, to the east of the of Vinho Verde region, it has a history going back to the 18th century when the estate reared cattle, had cereal crops & apple orchards as well as vineyards. José Diogo Teixeire Coelho, the current winemaker, is a direct descendant of the original family and has been committed to wine production since he was 17 years old.
