Rías Baixas at Food & Wine Classic in Aspen 2022
In June, we took in scenic mountain views while sharing the Albariño Wines of Rías Baixas with guests at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, Colorado. Those visiting our table were delighted by the wide range of styles, including a magnum of vintage 2018 wine that perfectly captured how well the Albariño Wines of Rías Baixas age.
Erik Segelbaum, a 2020 Wine Enthusiast 40 under 40 Tastemaker and Food & Wine’s 2019 Sommelier of the Year, and Felix Meana, co-founder of Cúrate, which recently won the 2022 James Beard Award for Outstanding Hospitality, also stopped by to sample our offerings.

CELEBRATE International Albariño Day
Seventy years ago, Bernardo Quintanilla and Ernesto Zàrate challenged one another to determine the best wine of 1952. The following year, International Albariño Day was born, and it continues to be celebrated annually on Aug. 1 as part of the Albariño Festival in Cambados, Galicia. As the birthplace of the Albariño grape, Rías Baixas is proud to honor the grape, and we invite you to celebrate with us by rating your favorite Rías Baixas wines on Vivino!
Rías Baixas x 12 Chefs
One of the noteworthy traits of the Albariño Wines of Rías Baixas is that they pair well with cuisines from all around the globe. From the seafood of the Rías Baixas region to farm-fresh offerings, spicy Thai dishes, and even takeout tacos, our wines offer a versatility unmatched by other wines on the market.
To showcase this, we’ve teamed up with 12 chefs to bring you 12 months of curated food and wine pairings. In May, Chef Jason Kiyota brought a taste of Hawaii to the challenge with his Island Kona Kampachi with melted Tokyo Negi, Hamakua Auli’I mushrooms, and a Kahuku corn broth to pair with the Martín Códax Albariño. Next, Chef Melissa Kelly leaned into her coastal Maine surroundings in June to create her Crabcake Soufflé, which pairs beautifully with the Vionta Albariño.
