International Albariño Day 2017

TAPAS announces the sixth International Albariño Days, August 2-7, 2017: A celebration of the Albariño grape. We are encouraging everyone to open a bottle of Albariño, enjoy the fun, and share their experiences online with the hashtag #AlbarinoFiesta. 

In past years we celebrated only one day, but for 2017 we will be celebrating for a whole week - to coincide with the Fiesta del Albariño 2016 held in the small coastal town of Cambados, Spain during the first week of August. Albariño is traditionally grown in Rias Baixas, a wine region in Galicia in northwestern Spain, and produces crisp, acidic white wines ideal for summer evenings and seafood pairings. It is also grown in Portugal, where it is known as Alvarinho.  Now it is being grown in North America, so we’re celebrating with International Albariño Day. 

(For six fun facts on Albariño, watch this two-minute video from Karen MacNeil, author of the Wine Bible. We encourage you to go to KarenMacNeil.com and sign up for WineSpeed, Karen's Friday afternoon tip sheet of wine advice and wine recommendations!)

We encourage wineries, wine shops, restaurants, bars, and everyone else to hold special events during Albariño Days! Whether or not you attend an organized event, use #AlbarinoFiesta to connect with fellow Albariño enthusiasts worldwide!
