NaBloPoMo, Day 22: Vinho Verde

Reader, when I was in Cape Cod I drank a lot of vinho verde, a lovely light sparkly Portuguese wine. Did you know there's a lot of Portuguese influence on the Cape? Now you do. Also? That means delish kale linguica soup. Delish linguica anything, really.

While looking up vinho verde, I learned a new word: p├ętillance which I guess means lightly sparkling never to be confused with semi sparkling, which vinho verde is not. Got it?

And even though it is definitely getting to be winter here, and that means you might need to turn the heat on and eat hearty fare, I still had two glasses tonight and enjoyed it thoroughly.
