Galicia, the northwestern most region of Spain, is unlike any other community. The northern Atlantic brings a wonderful deal of moisture into the region. It’s green as could be, although galicia may be soggy. Galicia’s very best white wines come in the lands surrounding.
Almuiña 2010 Albariño
Valtea 2010 Albariño from Pontevedra
Types of berry – the Albariño, Godello, Loureiro, and Treixadura are merely some of the types found here. As wine is to Galicia, red wine is to La Rioja. White wine is everywhere- in restaurants, bodegas, supermarkets, and even at every respectable Galician’s refrigerator. The whites and the types of seafood widely accessible set up beautifully together throughout Galicia. Galician wine production’s Five most common Regions would be: Ribeira Sacra, Monterrei, Rias Baixas, Ribeiro, and Valdeorras.
Abadia de San Campio 2010 Albariño from Rias Baixas
And I have gotten to understand grapes that were Galician pretty well after two weeks traveling through the region. I Would like to share with you some 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 lovely fruity wine for a sunny day in Spain.
Memoria de Ventura 2010 Godello from Valdeorras
Wonderful wine to match with foods such as meats and starches. I tried this wine.
Had 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 will creep upon you. Goes very well with both fish and meat.
Were talented that this wine at El Gourmet Aljan at Ribeiro’s small city. This was full of sweet notes, a superb wine. Very refined and refreshing.
Even the Godello grape generates a dryer and is smaller than the Albariño. I attempted this one at Aguamar, a conventional Galician restaurant located along the promenade in the city of La Coruña.
I cannot wait to maintain sampling the delicious wines of Galicia. Before experiencing all of the flavors which the Galician whites have to give I was a wine man. I’ve noticed that almost every home with a lawn has grapevines planted, even driving along country roads. Wine is threaded tightly into Spanish civilization and it. Wine tourism is one which you should definitely take advantage of and one of Spain’s benefits.
