Albariño

Bright and wonderfully aromatic, Albariño is a uniquely complex white wine hailing from Northern Spain/Portugal while showing as a standout varietal on the Central Coast of California. Initial notes of citrine (think lime peel, white grapefruit or vibrant lemon zest) can also move into the tropical expressions of guava and papaya.  Albariño is also know for having a distinct minerality that tells of its preferred climate…cool and coastal. A subtle salty character and bright acidity makes it a beloved wine for food pairing.

 

Additional Events

Beyond Saturday's main event, there are more celebrations of Albariño to enjoy.
