Reviews and Ratings

Adega de Monção. Lime and lemon essence on the nose. Extremely crisp, refreshing and clean on the palate with marvelous mouth-watering acidity for a wide range of dishes from seafood to salads. Finishes with dried herbs, more green citrus and a long core of minerality. As fresh as a mountain spring sourced deep inside the cavernous soils. Try it with vegetarian dishes. MINE: Established in 1958, Adega de Monção produces respected Vinho Verde wines. From the sub-region of Monção E Melgaço, this crisp, acidic white wine is made from 100% Alvarinho grapes. Very refreshing. OTHER: Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review: Priya: Dry, crisp, green are words that come to mind. Tastes lemony and tart. I feel like pita and hummus would enhance this wine for me. Not as fruity as I'd like. 85pts. OTHER: Alex: Beautiful pear, asparagus and spring flower nose, fresh and full of vitality. Very mineral on the palate, with grapefruit peel, unripe peach and grassiness. Fine acidity, and a sparkle makes this perfect for the summer, and with hummus, yes it would do just fine; and with veggie sticks and ranch dip as well. 87pts. OTHER: Founded in 1958, Adega de Monção is a fine example of the quality that people have come to expect from Vinho Verde wines. This will offer a floral, fresh, vibrant and lively experience with notes of grapefruit, green apple and pear. A fantastic wine for seafood or fish (Vintages Panel, updated). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
