Alpedrinha Gold Red Blend – 750ml
The award-winning Alpedrinha Gold is a blend of Portugal’s three finest grape varietals. The wine has been cellar aged for five years to extract the hidden characters of each grape. The main grape varietal in the blend is Portugal’s version of the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal. You can expect a unique wine with bold fruit flavors, hints of spice, and firm tannins.

Stories behind the wine
Disney movies would have us believe that pirates preferred rum, but that isn’t entirely true. The upper-class pirates (can that be a thing?) loved fortified wine. Fortified wine (16-25% ALC) was chosen over dry wines (10-15% ALC) because it would keep better on the ships due to its higher alcohol content. The wine in your glass is the same grape varietals that are used in the famous fortified wine called “Port” but was made into a dry style wine.
