Albarino Day

August 1st marks the annual celebration of Albariño Day. The origins of this day trace back to a 1952 contest between Bernardo Quintanilla and Ernesto Zàrate to determine the finest wine. The subsequent year saw the establishment of Albariño Day to honor and celebrate this remarkable wine.

The Albariño grape is indigenous to the Rias Baixas wine region in Spain. Renowned for its balance of acidity, lightness, and distinctive notes of lemon, grapefruit, and nectarine, some enthusiasts claim that Albariño is the perfect wine for the summer season.
