Casa da Senra Loureiro

Vinho Verde

9.73 

This Loureiro da Casa da Senra is produced in the Quinta dos Abrigueiros estate, located halfway between Arcos de Valdevez and Ponte de Lima.

And they didn’t start making this yesterday. Far from it.
This is the tenth generation of wine producers.
It all started in the 17th century by the hands of Tristão de Azevedo de Araújo “Leonês”.
The wine was exported to Northern Europe via the Viana do Castelo port.

Today, Paulo Damásio leads this project and has placed all bets on the region’s queen variety – Loureiro, of course.

Did you know that “Loureiro” means “louro” (blonde) and refers to the gold colour that the tree’s odiferous leaves have? (Loureiro, from louro, is the bay leaf shrub with louro meaning blonde and bay leaf). In ancient times, a “crown of bay leaves” (louros) symbolised glory and distinction. All this is perfect in describing the variety’s characteristics.

In the last few years, the Quinta dos Abrigueiros estate has increased production and invested in improving its winemaking processes.

The wine, which is probably what most interests you, what we can say without spoiling it for you is that it’s intense, elegant, addictive, surprising, refreshing and, well, we could fill this card with a huge list of adjectives. That says a lot about what we would like to say (but can’t because there’s not much space for that here) about this wine.

It is the only white wine in your Wome Box, but it’s one that is worth many!
Just like its red cousins accompanying it in your Box, this is a wine that will make you go back to our online store and order more because it really is that amazing.

If you combine it with the recipe that you can check out on the back of this card, you’ll feel that time has stopped just so you can enjoy this marvellous experience.

Either that or you’ll just end up smiling a great deal and send your friends at Wome an email just to say thank you!

Whatever you do, we are certain that the upcoming weeks are going to be fun for you.
And that has to be a good thing. That’s what we’re here for.

Why not put one of those moments up on Instagram? Tag us ( @wome_box ) so we can answer you and share your post.

Cheers! 🍷
