Soalheiro Alvarinho Vinho Verde
About as good as this variety can ever be, citrus, tropical and mineral notes. The grapes come from selected small vineyards around the Melgaço region in the most northerly point of Portugal. The brand name – Soalheiro – arises from the excellent sun exposure of the vineyards bearing the same name – a sunny place.

Quinta de Soalheiro, located in Melgaço (the most northern point of Portugal), is protected by a range of mountains that create conditions of rainfall, temperature and sunshine hours necessary for the best ripening of the Alvarinho grapes.
This very special microclimate led João Antonio Cerdeira to plant the first Alvarinho vine in 1974 and to create, in 1982, the first Alvarinho brand in Melgaço – “Soalheiro”.
