Beach with Arco Nova Vinho Verde

Beach Wine I

Often times, I feel the ever returning itch to leave the city. Not that I don’t love LA, but the smog and traffic make me feel like a crazy person. So with that, a quick trip to San Diego was the ticket, which by the way, took 4 hours to get to. Traffic literally follows me everywhere. The only thing keeping me sane was the light at the end of the tunnel: a clean beach free of bums and syringes. I’m looking at you Venice.

I decided to pick up a bottle of Arca Nova Vinho Verde for my beach excursion. This bottle is spritzy, crisp, portuguese perfection that’s made in the Minho region of Portugal. Vinho verde literally translates to “green wine.” To me, vinho verde literally translates to “adult lemonade that goes down too easy.” We like to define this kind of wine as “highly crushable.”

Fingers crossed for many more mini escapes in 2014.
