WINE SCHOOL 17 - 23 June 2019

REGION: Spain > Galicia > Rías Baixas

GRAPE: Albariño

Albariño is best known as the grape grown in the Rías Baixas DO in Galicia, north west Spain. It is also popular in north west Portugal where it is known as Alvarinho and is found in many Vinho Verde wines.

Albariño is most often found in light-bodied single-varietal wines. Stone fruit aromas may be complemented by a lemony note and a whiff of seabreeze. Most Albariño wines are best enjoyed young and are an exemplary match for seafood.

Synonyms: Alvarinho (Portugal)
