Purests of Moncao e Melgaco. This is the only sub region of Vinho Verde that is authorised to grow Alvarinho. Moncao e Melgaco are slightly drier zones that benefit from proximity to the coast and the cool drying breezes of the Atlantic. Provam works exclusively with the most premium of the Vinho Verde varieties – Alvarinho and also with the textured Trajadura. They make excellent espumante (sparkling) and have a range of unoaked and barrel fermented wine that represent excellent value.
