Notes from the Importer: Márcio Lopes, initially an engineer, honed his winemaking skills with Vinho Verde expert Anselmo Mendes in Melgaço and furthered his experience in Australia. Returning to Portugal in 2010, he launched Pequeños Rebentos in Vinho Verde and began vinifying the Loureiro varietal in 2016. Lopes champions low-intervention winemaking, emphasizing natural yeasts and the quality of fruit. His wines, reflecting this philosophy, are notably fresh, vibrant, and true to their terroir.
