About This Wine:
Verdejo (pronounced vurr-day-ho) can be somewhat “shy” when first poured into a wine glass, but with a little time and a little swirling, it opens up to reveal enticing and refreshing fruit flavors.
Many people enjoy Verdejo as a sipping wine, as it makes a tasty alternative to Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. But those who drink it with food are in for an especially enjoyable experience, as it pairs well with so many dishes. Some say the ideal pairing partner is a simple fish taco because of the lime flavor it shares with the wine.
Other outstanding pairing partners include carnitas, sole, pork loin, sheep’s milk and goat’s milk cheeses, and sandwiches that include avocado slices among the ingredients. It’s also outstanding with salads, and Marques de Castillo’s “Oro Blanco” Verdejo makes a great companion to a shrimp cocktail as well.
