Verdelho dos Açores

The Verdelho dos Açores is known by freshness, minerality, salinity and vibrant acidity. Verdelho dos Açores is considered the oldest and most typical grape variety.  Is one of the three traditional varieties grown on Pico Island in the Azores, which exported it to mainland Europe (most notably the cellars of Czar Nicholas II) before the variety was all but wiped out in the phylloxera plague. Returning to their roots, the islands of the Azores, with predominance in the islands of Pico, São Jorge, Graciosa Island and Terceira have been planting the grape again and the wine produced, exported to several countries of Europe, particularly to England. It is similar to the Verdelho that is grown in Madeira as well as in Australia to where it was taken from this Portuguese island around 1824. However, the micro satellites profiles scientifically prove it is a variety different from the Italian Verdecchio, the Spanish Verdejo and the Portuguese Gouveio which, in the mainland, is also referred to as Verdelho.
