Casa das Hortas Cabeça de Gaio

Portugal | Vinho Verde & Douro

Casa Das Hortas are located in the Vinho Verde DO and are a consortium of growers who have been producing their own wines since 1995. The fruit for Cabeca de Gaio’s wines are sourced from throughout northern Portugal — mainly Vinho Verde and Douro DO’s.

Portuguese wines offer incredible complexity for their price, and consumers are catching on. SevenFifty Daily outlined a consumer interest in the discovery of wines from new regions as a reason for the uptick of interest in wines from Portugal as a buying trend to watch.

Because Portugal’s wine culture developed mostly in isolation, it is home to over 250 indigenous varieties that have adapted well to the land. Undiscovered varietals abound, and as a result Portugal is rife for discovery at affordable prices.
