FOOD MATCH FOR ALBARINO

8/30/2017 4:22 PM

Albarino is a white grape variety that comes for the coast of Galicia in the Rias Baixas region of northern Spain. If we had to sum up the best food pairing it would have to be seafood which makes sense considering where the grape grows best.

It has that distinctive salty tang you get from another of the country’s iconic wines, manzanilla sherry which makes it a great match for all kinds of raw and lightly cooked shellfish. However, one has to consider there are different methods of wine making so there are more complex oaked versions which can handle richer fuller flavours.

We have 5 Albarino wines to select from starting at €12.50 per bottle check them out here!
