About Anselmo Mendes

Born and raised in Monção – northern Portugal’s wine region famed for its Alvarinho grapes – Anselmo Mendes became acquainted with vine culture and wine production at an early age. After undertaking a degree in Agro-Industrial Engineering, Anselmo began producing wine in Monção and Melgaço – cultivating both a passion for the land and the ability to bring out the best in every wine he produces. Regarded as one of the greats in Portuguese winemaking and oft referred to as ‘the King of Vinho Verde’, Anselmo regularly produces wines that are accessible but innovative, and perfect for summer.

Douro Tinto

Douro Tinto


Made from a blend of indigenous red grapes - Tinta Francisca, Alicante Bouschet to name just two – from a wonderful 90-year-old vineyard, this red has a remarkable elegance and finesse, with the delightful secondary notes of cigar box, anise and mint on the finish.
3 Rios Vinho Verde

3 Rios Vinho Verde


A zippy, fresh citric white made from a blend of the Vinho Verde’s most celebrated white grape varieties: Alvarinho, Loureiro and Avesso. All the grapes are hand-harvested, de-stemmend and then gently pressed to preserve the juicy apricot and apple characters.
Avesso Vinho Verde

Avesso Vinho Verde


An indigenous single varietal from the Vinho Verde region, declared the next star grape by Anselmo himself, this is a juicy, aromatic wine with vibrant notes of apricot, tangerine and lemon. A wonderful pairing for seafood.
