I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

Lightly scented white grape known as Trajadura in Northern Portugal, it can be found most often in the wines of Vinho Verde. In Spain, it can be found in Galicia under the name Treixadura. Typically, it is blended with other grapes such as Albarino, Loureiro, Lado or Torrontas depending on where it is grown. However, it can also stand alone producing light body wines with citrus flavors and aromas.
