Share your experiences online with the hashtag #AlbarinoFiesta. International Albari241;o Day was inspired by the annual Fiesta del Albari241;o held in the small coastal town of Cambados, Spain during the first week of August. Albari241;o is traditionally grown in Rias Baixas, a wine region in Galicia in northwestern Spain, and is considered one of the country8217;s finest white wines. Its lower alcohol and crisp acidity make it an ideal wine for summer evenings and seafood pairings. Richard Longoria is the owner and winemaker for Longoria Wines… handcrafted in very small quantities ranging from 50 to 700 cases. Total annual production currently averages 3,500 cases.
