The Festival of Albariño is an annual gathering of producers and enthusiasts in Paso Robles, California
celebrating albariño from around the central coast
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.
