Grape of the Week: Verdejo
By: Jeff S Cameron
Posted: Apr. 29, 2013

Verdejo is little-known in the United States, even though we are one of the very few places outside of Spain that actually has a planting of this aromatic white wine grape. Named after the green color of the grape, Verdejo likely originated in North Africa and travelled to Spain with the Moors. Traditionally used to make fortified wines, known as Palido and Dorado, Verdejo has gained new life and a fresher more lively style thanks to Spanish vintner Marques de Riscal who saw the potential for dry white wines from the Rueda.


Here's a nice bass recipe with a nice tomato sauce.
