Vinho Verde, Douro, PortugalMadeira

Costa Verde, Portugal Vinho Verde is produced in Portugal’s Northwest region, the Costa Verde. This verdant region extends from the Vale da Cambra south of the river Douro to the Minho, which forms the frontier with Spain over 130 km to the north. Originally known for rough and ready, tart, high-pitched wines, the cool climate and rain-bearing westerly winds keeps this area cool and damp. This is one of Portugal’s most commercially viable areas and one of its most highly populated. The Broadbent name has been synonymous with fine wine for more than four decades, beginning with the renowned career of British wine critic, writer and auctioneer Michael Broadbent and continuing with his son, the importer Bartholomew Broadbent. Bartholomew’s deep roots in Portugal inspired him to create his own range of table wines. Broadbent’s vision was to produce the most reliable and traditional of all Vinho Verdes and to resolve the usual complaint that Vinho Verde never tastes like it tastes in Portugal. The solution was twofold: to partner with a winery that had consistent production, and to ship the wines in refrigerated containers. Refrigeration is an absolute necessity for shipping, as this enables the wine to taste as fresh and spritzy as it would ever taste in Portugal.Snce its launch in 2005, Broadbent Vinho Verde has rapidly earned the reputation as one of the finest Vinho Verdes.
