Crisp. light, refreshing
10/04/2011

Not to pile on to the other reviews, but you get the picture. This wine reminds me of a wine I once picked up at the Peju vineyard called Carnival, only a lot cheaper and a good deal lighter. Effervescence quite nice.

The perfect patio beverage

It's not the kind of vinho that wine snobs would rate well but it's the perfect light crisp acidic summer sipper that goes down well. Light in alcohol content so that you can have an extra glass or so. Pairs easily with semi-soft cheeses and young manchego. By the way, this is not an underripe wine or a chardonnay as was misstated below. Produced by the same lovely folks that brought you Mateus all through college.
Refreshing

This is quite possibly the best $12 I've ever spent. I tasted this at a Saturday tasting and bought a bottle. Then after I had drank one bottle, realized that I had purchased the first bottle at an earlier date. And was extremely happy I had, though I wish I had a case as this is one of my favorite summer sippers. It is refreshing, light and goes down oh so easy. And for $6 a pop you can't beat it.
I'm impressed by the price...

of this wine. It's very light-bodied, easy-drinking and very refreshing. It also has the extremely faint bubbles and sparkle that are typical to the vinho verdes. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of pricier wines, but that's o.k. You can't expect more for the price. It's impressive that the price range for vinho verdes is $3.50-$9.00, and they are extremely good. If you want a not too fancy very inexpensive everyday wine that is also very refreshing try this and also Nobilis Vinho Verde (see my review).

Be sure to understand this for what it is. It is "green wine," so named because it is made from grapes picked while still young, or "green." Not complex, but crisp and delicious, especially when enjoyed outdoors on a hot day. It is NOT Chardonnay, Sauv Blanc, etc, and shouldn't be compared as such. This and Nobilis are the best brands of the vinho verdes - more vibrant and fruity than the others I've had.
Vinho Verde Gazela The Best

by Guglielmotti12390852
We are from Italy, and of course usually buy Italian wines. Once we tasted Gazela Vinho Verde there was no going back. It is great with any kind of fish. Good just to drink for a before meal drink. This brand is the best of the Vinho Verde's.
Best cheap summer wine you can buy!

This is a light and refreshing wine, perfect for sipping or fine with a summer evening meal. And the price belies its' quality.
Vinho Verde is NOT green
05/20/2008
by Teixeira12046093
Sorry, but is not TRUE , in contrast of what it is normal to say the "Vinho Verde" does´t have the name of “Verde” for being harvested early,Vinho Verde has an equal maturation to the remaining wines and the harvest is made in September, “Verde” name does´t have to be translated, Verde is the GREEN landscape for being a zone where it rains a lot . We can have Vinhos Verdes with 13 alcohol degrees.
I Enjoyed IT

by Hawkins11257643
Found it light, refreshing, not boring but just right. Goes wonderfully with a light cheese. I agree with Riesling-QPR - even white wine snobs can enjoy this.
Different and fun

I tried this wine in a tasting and I thought it was like spring in a bottle. Very light...even refreshing. Definitely for those who "don't like wine." Easily able to drink it when just relaxing, not just with meals.
Cool Wine!!

Light, fruity and acidic with slight carbonation.
Ditto - what they said

3 stars for this fun wine, 4th star for the rock-bottom price. It's fun, it's light, cool, crisp, clean, a little fruity, very refreshing and ever so slightly effervescent. Offer a sample of this to your friends who “don’t like wine”; they’ll think again. Also something wine snobs can enjoy. note to poster Pinell: Chardonnay? No. The Alvarinho (a.k.a. Albarino) is the main grape of Vinho Verde, along with Tragadura, Loureiro, Pederna, and Azal.
Nice

Very nice wine for the price. Light and fruity.
It's just fun

It's fun, it's light, it goes with food like no one's business. My husband and I went to Portugal on our honeymoon, and opening a bottle of this is a thrifty way to relive it.
Excellent for the price

Light, a little fruity, very refreshing white. Perfect for summer. Buy by the case, not the bottle.
something different before dinner

Offer this to your Chardonnay-sipping friends as an alternative aperitif. It's light and refreshing, and you can't argue with the price.
Nice deck wine

We had this during a summer wine party found it refreshing with a slight bubbly sensation... for the price very good wine.
Different, pretty good

I enjoyed this wine. It's different, intriguing, very acidic with some carbonation. Not bad at all. Went with a variety of dishes.
great price

Nothing special, but a great deal. Very refreshing and a great choice for a summer party or BBQ, especially when price is an issue.

good for the price. Something to have on hand when you would like to have fruit and cheese.
Mediocre

by Pond11949673
Came across this vinho verde while trying to find one of the same price range I had sampled and loved. I did not love this. It was drinkable, but lacked the refreshing, crisp taste of the mystery vinho verde. I think you'd be safer with a different name.
Good

A little bubbly...different. Certainly, worth a try for the price but we probably won't get it again.
Too Tart
03/27/2011
by Shatzer12600943
I purchased this on the recommendation of the sales rep, but didn't really care for it. It has a floral nose, but the taste we just too tart. It had a slight effervescence that tickled the tongue, which I did like. Very crisp acidity.
Too high expectation!

by Sharpe11936518
After reading the reviews on here about this wine, I grabbed a bottle for $4.29. I ended up having to drink it alone as the 4 other white wine drinkers didn't like it. Crisp, but a mediocre white table wine at best.

About Portugal

For most American wine lovers Portuguese wine means Port, the rich fortified Portugal wine made in the hot, dry Douro Valley in the northern part of the country. But the past decade has witnessed a greater flow of high-quality table wines, mostly red, into the U.S. market.
