Portugal’s Vihno Verde

Looking for a great deal on a summer wine? Come on in and head over to our Smart Buys section, and take a look at the Vinho Verde selection. These Portuguese wines are named “green”, which literally translates to “young”. They are meant to be consumed within a year of bottling. Vihno Verdes are light wines, with a mild carbonation.

According to New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov’s recent article “Cheap and Cheerful”, the popularity of Vihno Verde is growing rapidly in the US, lauded as a low priced great summer wine. According to Asimov Portugal’s Vihno Verde exports to the US have nearly tripled in the last ten years.

Asimov and a team of professionals sampled 20 bottles of Vihno Verde, and concluded:

“At their best, these wines are fresh and lively, zingy, zesty, sometimes fizzy and above all, untaxing.”

In our Smart Buys section you’ll find one of the wines sampled by Asimov and his team, Broadbent, which they described as “Clean and balanced with pleasant texture and lively citrus flavors.” Also on our Smart Buy shelf you will find Ciconia Vihno Verde and Lima Vihno Verde.

Allagash Brewing Company

Allagash-six-packs-rockville-mdAllagash Brewing Company was founded in 1995, by one man determined to bring Belgian style beers to U.S. drinkers. Rob Tod started with a Belgium style white wit beer. A grew summer brew, brewed with wheat and flavored with orange peel, coriander and other spices. Today the Allagash line has grown to seven yearly beers, and various limited releases.

Village Beer and Fine Wine is proud to be your Rockville source for Allagash beers. Our shelves are stocked with everything from six packs of Allagash Tripel Ale, to 22 oz bottles of Allagash brew aged in oak barrels.

Allagash Oddyssey is a dark wheat beer aged for ten months, partly in oak barrels. The brewer describes this limited annual relase:

“This deep brown beer boasts an aroma of black treacle and raisin. The flavor hints at dates, with a mildly roasted finish imparted by aging in both medium and heavy toast American Oak barrels. The finish is dry, punctuated by vanilla.”


Allagash Curiex is Tripel Ale aged for eight weeks in Jim Beam bourbon barrels. Mixed back in with fresh Tripel, “the resulting beer is soft with coconut and vanilla notes, with hints of bourbon.”

Also in 22oz bottles, we are currently featuring Allagash Curiex, Four Ale, Dubbel Reserve and Triple Reserve. In six packs we have Allagash White, Black and Tripel.
