RÍas Baixas AlbariÑo: A World Class White Wine

Seminar Description

In this seminar, we’ll explore the various styles of wines produced in the region, influenced by the different sub zones and winemaking techniques. Taste why Jill Zimorski says Rías Baixas Albariño should be considered one of the great white wines of the world!

Denomination of Origin (DO) Rías Baixas is renowned for the Albariño grape, an indigenous variety that produces some of the world’s foremost white wines. Located in the Galicia region of northwestern Spain, the DO was formally established in 1988. Albariño has always been the flagship of this coastal region. In Rías Baixas’ unique climate, Albariño shares the same mineral-rich soils and cool climate as the world’s other renowned white wine-producing regions, including France’s Loire Valley, New Zealand, and the Rhine region of Germany.
