Will Lyons on Portugal's Vinho Verde | The Douro Index | Scoop.it
Portugal's Vinho Verde is the ultimate hot-weather wine. But it's no pushover, Will Lyons explains. THE THERMOMETER in our garden tipped 33°C the other night, which is about as hot as it gets in London. After six pretty poor summers, it seems a heat wave is now sweeping across these islands, giving us temperatures to rival Southern Europe's more sun-baked cities.
