Drinking and Pairing Albariño with Food

Albariño, aka Alvarinho in Vinho Verde (Portugal), is the straw-colored, highly aromatic, and zippy white wine of the Rías Baixas region of northwest Spain. The wines are dry and tend to display qualities such as ripe peach, apricot, and lemon zest.

Albariño's fresh acidity makes it a fine contrast to foods that are rich, salty, oily, fatty, or mildly spicy. The wine also pairs nicely with tart foods such as vinaigrettes, capers, leeks, and tomatoes.
