We were there when Anselmo launched the first wines with its name on the market. He had already made a name for himself as a consultant in many estates, but in the early 2000s he focused on his home region. 

Melgaço has always been recognised as one of the best places to produce Alvarinho, but very few quality estates were still active. 
Anselmo played an important role in the rebirth of the region and is now recognised as one of Portugal's leading white wine producers. 

The Alvarinho grape variety plays the main role here, but Anselmo also values other local varieties such as Loureiro, Avesso and Vinhão. Its wines are distinguished by their freshness and minerality. The granitic soils, the proximity of the ocean and its location in the north of Portugal play a decisive role. 

The Vinho Verde is criss-crossed by 3 large rivers that flow towards the ocean. The banks of each stream are planted with vines and each valley has its dominant grape variety. Avesso dominates the last part of the Douro, Loureiro dominates the Lima valley and Alvarinho dominates the Minho.

In 3 Rios the grapes from each valley are used to create a very tasty and refreshing Vinho Verde.

The attack is lively and salty, a mid-palate of fruit and green apple and a finish of freshness and minerality.
