The northwestern most region of Spain, galicia, is similar to any other Spanish neighborhood. The northern Atlantic brings a great deal of moisture into the region. Galicia may be soggy, but it’s green as can be. Galicia’s very greatest wines come from the fertile lands surrounding.

Valtea 2010 Albariño from Pontevedra
Several sorts of berry – that the Albariño, Godello, Loureiro, and Treixadura are merely some of the types found here. As white wine would be to Galicia, wine would be to La Rioja. White wine is anywhere – in each respectable, and at restaurants, supermarkets, bodegas Galician’s refrigerator. The whites set up beautifully with the sorts of seafood across Galicia. Galician wine production’s Five most common Regions are: Ribeira Sacra, Monterrei, Rias Baixas, Ribeiro, along with Valdeorras.

And I have sure gotten to know Galician grapes pretty nicely after two weeks traveling throughout the area. I Wish to share a few of my favorite best white wines of Galicia in this post:
Paco & Lola 2010 Albariño fro Rias Baixas
I had this wine in O Pescador Restaurant at Vigo.
A beautiful fruity wine in Spain to get a day.
Memoria de Ventura 2010 Godello from Valdeorras
Amazing wine to match with foods such as meats and starches. I tried this wine at El Mosquito Restaurant at Vigo.
Enjoy this one in Restaurant Banasteria at Pontevedra and also in Don Gaiferos Restaurant at Santiago de Compostela.
If you’re not careful this wine is sweet, but may creep up on you. Goes very nicely with fish and meat.
Were talented this wine at El Gourmet Aljan at the small town of Ribeiro by owner Chef Anttonio Aljan and head chef. This is full of sweet notes, a wine. Very refined and refreshing.
Even the Godello grape is smaller and produces a dryer, less fruity wine. This one tried a traditional Galician restaurant situated along the promenade in the city of La Coruña, at Aguamar.
I cannot wait to keep sampling the wines of Galicia. Before experiencing all of the flavors which the Galician whites have to offer you, I was a red wine guy. I have noticed that almost every home with a lawn has grapevines planted, even driving country roads along. Wine is threaded closely into Spanish culture and it. Wine tourism is one of the benefits of Spain and one which you should definitely use.
