      All about Albarino wine

      Where does Albarino come from?

      The homeland for most Albarino wines is the Galicia region in Spain. More precisely, many producers of this fruity white wine are in the Rias Baixas area. Portugal produces some Albarino too.

      In the past, most producers mixed the Albarino grapes with other grape varieties to produce wines. Beginning in the 1980s, wine producers started to use Albarino on its own. 

      How does Albarino taste?

      This white grape wine is dry with fruity and citrusy notes. When sipping it, you'll be able to identify notes of pear, lemon zest, nectarine, honeydew and apple. Albarino has a slightly bitter aftertaste that makes it very food-friendly as the bitterness cleans your palate between mouthfuls of different foods. 

      Albarino also features a slight salinity, which is very pleasant on the palate. The alcohol content is between 11.5% and 13.5% alcohol by volume (ABV). Thanks to its fruity and dry taste, Albarino is a nice alternative to pinot grigio and chardonnay.

      What food can you serve with Albarino?

      Albarino blends well with one of the most popular foods in the Galicia region: seafood. Try it with paella or risotto alla pescatora. Mussels, clams and ceviche are other good pairings for this white wine. If you want to treat yourself, try Albarino with oysters. The dryness of this wine also works well with tapas, especially those that contain vegetables. As for cheeses, try Albarino with feta, Gouda and burrata.

      Since the wine blends well with herbs and spices, you can pair it with many vegan dishes. Serve it cold, around 38 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit, in a white wine glass.
