Casa Santa Eulalia
Based in Mondim de Basto, Casa Santa Eulalia is in the heart of the Vinho Verde region. Basto is the furethest inland of the 9 sub regions and is amongst the highest. The climate tends to favour the later ripeneing varieties such as Avesso and Azal in the whites and Vinhao and Espideiro in the red which produce excellent roses as well. The soils are heavily granitic so the mineral Avesso is a star of the sub region and combined with the wonderful crisp acidity that is such a feature of the region these wines are built for summer.
