21 marks the official start to summer. That means outdoor barbecues, patio dining and succulent seafood will be front and center for the season. Of course, you already know that because of Rias Baixas’ location on the gorgeous coast of Galicia, seafood is abundant throughout the region and Albariño is the signature white wine that pairs to perfection with every dish.
But it’s not just in Spain where this combination is a go-to for gourmet food and wine lovers – just ask Michael Austin of The Chicago Tribune. In his recent article, “Albarino: Your Wine for About Anything Pulled from the Sea,” Austin gives the varietal plenty of high praise: “It can be a pleasant aperitif and certainly can carry its weight through an entire seafood-themed repast. Worth every dollar.”
