Albarino - Fashionable Whites From Green Spain
A very special tasting for all lovers of white wine dedicated to Spain’s most fashionable white grape variety, Albariño.
Nestled up in the remote north west corner of Spain by the side of the Atlantic Ocean, Rias Baixas is 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.
The tasting will feature a selection of 6 different Rias Baixas wines expressing different characteristics of the region including a rare aged Albarino served with a selection of Spanish nibbles.
Each guest will also receive a complimentary high quality, heavy duty cotton Rias Baixas bag, leaflet and pen.
