Winter is here, and while many white wines tend to be consumed less at this time of year, Albariño from Rías Baixas is the white wine for all seasons! The many styles of our Albariño make it ideal to enjoy all year long. Look for our wines with more lees aging, oak treatment, or bottle aging for added complexity and a fuller mouth feel. We have the perfect Winter white wines with versatility to please any palate.
