Vinho Verde is a Portugese, (typically) white wine translating to "green wine" not for its color but for its youth. Vinho Verdes are best enjoyed within a year of bottling and thus, are usually inexpensive, costing around $8 a bottle. Tasty and cheap equals my kind of beverage.

It seems that the overall consensus of Vinho Verde is that it's a light and refreshing, budget-friendly, summer-time wine. I like all those things. They seem cool to me. So am I in love with an uncool wine? Don't know. Don't care. It's my
