Albariño grapes on the vine / Juan Manuel Sanz – ICEX

The fourth edition of the Albariños Around the World competition is taking place in Stockholm, Sweden today, so there may truly be no time like the present to pour yourself a glass of Spanish white wine made from this wonderfully aromatic Spanish grape.

Organized by the Spanish Wine Tasters Union, this event (which changes international locations every year) is a global tribute to this delectable and noble Spanish grape, which – though it reigns over many of the white wines made in the northern Spanish community of Galicia – is the undisputed queen of the top-quality wines from DO Rías Baixas, which are exported all over the world.
