... WINE LIST ...

Minho: Home to  Vinho Verde, a distinctive Portuguese wine style there is light and crisp. The style  may vary depending on the different sub-regions: Alvarinho wines from Moncao, for example are drier and full-bodied; whereas those from the Loureiro grape in central Minho show more perfume and finesse. All share a common denominator of needing to be consumed young.

Tras-os-Montes: Portugal’s most remote and rugged region, Tras-os Montes (“beyond the mountains”) is home to Douro wines,.

The steeply terraced vineyards contain some wonderful terroirs, but because of the economic dominance of the Port trade it is only recently that this have been widely exploited to produce premium wines.
