Dona Paterna

Carlos Codesso is a pure grower. He and his family have tended Alvarinho for 40 years and have some of the best vineyard locations in the Vinho Verde DOC. Higher altitude, old vine enforcado vineyards producing stunningly balanced grapes that produce a steelier, crisper style of tectured Alvarinho. The Dona Paterna Alvarinho 2014 was awarded the top Alvarinho of the region. Carlos has excitingly just released and Alvarinho/Trajadura blend that is a little crisper and lighter than the straight Alvarinho. MICHAEL WREN
