Espadeiro is a red Portuguese wine grape planted primarily in the Minho region for making Vinho Verde. It is also grown across the border, in Spain, in Galicia where it is used to make light bodied wines.
Rather than being a single grape variety, there are several variants in the Espadeiro family of grapes, including Espadeiro tinto and Espadeiro Mole, with partially overlapping synonyms.
