Affordable Wines to Look For at Esporo Monte Velho.

A valuable lesson we learned early in our wine appreciation journey is the concept of thrift: spending less money on a wine we actually appreciate rather than more for a wine we don’t.

When searching for fantastic value wines, it takes a little more time and work, but the reward is a lovely glass of wine and the pleasure of finding a good price.

You may enjoy a nice glass of wine while also getting a decent value when you purchase the Monte Velho wines from Esporo. Both of these wines were sent to us as tasting samples.

Generally speaking, Portuguese wines are quite fairly priced; thus, if you’re seeking exceptional value, Portugal is a terrific location to start your search.

Blended wines are customary in Portugal for both red and white wines, providing winemakers with a plethora of alternatives for enhancing the taste, texture, and complexity of their wines.

The Alentejo region is a fantastic spot to explore for good, reasonably priced Portuguese wines. When it comes to the growing season, this huge wine area is hot and dry.

In addition to vineyards, olive trees, cork trees, and a variety of other agricultural commodities are farmed in this region. Sustainability is taken seriously in Alentejo, as shown by the Sustainability for Wines of Alentejo Sustainability Program (WASP), which was the first appellation-wide sustainability program to be implemented in Portugal.

In this region, red wine grape types prevail (80 percent), but you may also find some white wines and even some rosé wines. Aragonez (Tempranillo), Alicante Bouschet, Alfrocheiro, Castelo, and Trincadeira are some of the red grape varietals available.

The white grape variety Anto Vaz is the favorite of the area, and it is combined with other varieties such as Arinto, Roupeiro, and others to create a delicious mixture.

The Herdade do Esporo (formerly known as Defesa do Esporo) land has been in the family since 1267.

The estate’s borders have remained essentially intact since its founding, and it is home to three historical monuments: the Esporo Tower, the Esporo Arch, and the Nossa Senhora dos Remédios Chapel, all of which are located on the estate.

Ca’ Di Prata Prosecco: A Brief Overview

This Alentejo winery has been around since 1985 and is committed to the earth by incorporating organic farming practices into its vineyards, olive groves, and other agricultural products. Esporo has been producing wine since 1985 and is committed to the land.

Esporo is also a member of the Women’s Action for Social Progress. We are sampling two wines today, both of which were procured from grower partners located around the Alentejo wine area.

In 2019, the Herdade do Esporo Monte Velho Vinho Branco, the Vinho Regional Alentejano, will be released.
2019 Herdade do Esporo Monte Velho Vinho Branco, Vinho Regional Alentejano — Herdade do Esporo Monte Velho Vinho Branco, Vinho Regional Alentejano — Honeysuckle, orange flowers, pineapple, and citrus zest scents abound in this light golden-colored wine in a stemless glass.

The flavors are a lively blend of citrus, juicy melon, and pear, with hints of oat hay and gravelly minerality to balance them out. It’s a little round, with a touch of tannins, and it has a very long aftertaste. The alcohol content is 14 percent. SRP is ten dollars.

Although it is served chilled, this wonderful mix of Anto Vaz, Perrum, and Roupeiro is a gorgeous flowery concoction with layers of taste that are distinct from the scents. This is a wine that should be sought after. The intricacy and balance of this wine have taken my breath away… as well as for ten dollars

This year’s Herdade do Esporo Monte Velho Vinho Tinto, Vinho Regional Alentejano, will be released.

2019 Herdade do Esporo Monte Velho is a family-owned and operated business in Monte Velho, Portugal. A medium crimson in the glass, with abundant scents of juicy blackberries and blueberries, this Vinho Tinto, or Vinho Regional Alentejano, is a delicious treat.

Flavors include luscious blackberries, raspberries, cranberries, and plums, among other fruits. Dusty gravel and dried herb notes mingle in the background while the wine’s silky tannins, medium body, and medium finish come to the fore. SRP is $10 for 13.5 percent abv.

In this bright, energetic red blend, Touriga Nacional, Aragonez, Syrah, and Trincadeira all work well together to create a vibrant, vivacious wine.

The fruit tastes are abundant, but they are also quite bright and fresh, with enough of acidity and not at all overripe in flavor. Tannins have been successfully incorporated.

Polenta served with sausage and broccoli rabe.

In both cases, stainless steel is used exclusively in production. Both of these wines are meant to be consumed immediately, and we were delighted with the overall quality of both. We served them with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe with Polenta, which Peter prepared using the Vinho Branco that was included in the recipe.

It was delicious. With dinner, I drank on the Vinho Branco while Peter sipped on the Vinho Tinto, while both wines were delicious and went well with the food.
