All About Albariño

ALL ABOUT ALBARIÑO – RÍAS BAIXAS: THE HEARTLAND OF ALBARIÑO

Join wine expert Tom Surgey for this e-Wine Men virtual wine tasting from the comfort of your own home.

D.O. Rías Baixas is widely acknowledged as the heartland of Spain’s most fashionable white grape variety, Albariño. 95% of all grapes grown here are Albariño grapes. Nestled up in the remote north-west corner of Spain by the side of the Atlantic Ocean, Rías Baixas is also famous for its lush green landscape, steep terraced vineyards and granite ‘pergolas’, not to mention the cornucopia of fresh fish hauled daily out of the ocean just a stone’s throw away!

This is an area which is a far cry from the Spain of popular imagination, and as such remains a relatively undiscovered region to all but a few “in the know”. Yet the wine emanating from this delightful corner of Spain is certainly gaining recognition worldwide for its refreshing peach, elderflower, citrus and tropical fruit aromas and silken palate.

We will be exploring the region with Tom Surgey – finding out about the history, culture, climate, winemaking and what unique characteristics makes Rías Baixas the true heartland of Albariño.

We have put together a special ‘Rías Baixas Albariño Kit’ consisting of two delicious examples of Albariño, a jar of tasty plump Spanish ‘Gordal’ olives, a bag of salted and fried Valencian almonds, a heavy-duty cotton ‘I love Albariño’ bag, a leaflet on Rías Baixas, a fact sheet on the two wines and nibbles (including stockist details).
