1. Storing the bottles

Bottles should always be stored in a dark place with a constant temperature of between 12ºC-14°C (53.6° to 57.2°F), for example, in a cellar.

2. Choosing the right temp

Vinho Verde wine bottles should be chilled at least 2 to 3 hours in the fridge or 30 minutes on an iced frappé.

Store wine bottles horizontally

3. Keeping it horizontal

Bottles should be stored in a horizontal position to keep the cork in contact with the wine. Yet, if screw cap, there’s actually no need to do so.

4. Opening the bottle

Cut the capsule below the outer ring of the mouth of the bottle, and then clean the top as there may be impurities from the cork. If it’s a screw cap, just unscrew it, but consider it doing it with style. #snobalert

If you do not consume it immediately, it can be kept in the refrigerator for 1 or 2 days. The bottle should preferably be closed with the cap or original cork.
