Padeiro is a red grape variety native to Portugal, primarily cultivated in the Vinho Verde region. It is frequently used in the production of rosé wines, noted for their distinctive bright pink hue. The wines are characterised by their fragrant, fruit-forward nature, often filled with lively notes of red berries such as strawberries and raspberries. Padeiro wines also exhibit a pleasingly fresh acidity and a delicate, light-bodied structure. This makes them a refreshing choice on a hot day and a versatile match for a range of food, particularly seafood and lighter fare. Padeiro, although less known than other Portuguese grape varieties, offers a uniquely Portuguese perspective on rosé.
