What am I: Vinhos Aparte Ambar
What started as a thesis project for three friends attending enology school together has become one of the most exciting natural wine projects in Portugal. Vinhos Aparte brings a punk-rock/graffiti artist aesthetic to their winemaking, and it shows in their whimsical, fresh, fruity, and oh-so-funky wines. They may be grape-mad explorers in wine-based fun and craziness, but they are dead serious when it comes to making extraordinary wine.
Vinhos Aparte Ambar is the orange wine of your dreams. The updated take on of their first orange wine released in 2017, this Moscatel de Setubal is armed with so many aromas and flavors that it will make your palate sing. It’s been a huge hit since it first hit the streets in 2019.
Don’t ask questions, just order it and be happy.
