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.
3. Keeping it horizontal
Bottles should be stored in a horizontal position to keep the cork in contact with the wine.
4. Opening the bottle
Cut the capsule, which must be done below the outer ring of the mouth of the bottle, and then cleaning the top of the cork as there may be impurities.
5. Keep it in the fridge
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.
6. Serving Vinho Verde
Choose a Viognier, Bordeaux, or Tulip (especifically for the Rosé) glass of wine and fill only a third of the glass. Finally, swirl gently before tasting.
