TAPAS announces the first International Albariño Day, 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.
International Albariño Day was inspired by the Albariño Wine Festival 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.
Abacela will be celebrating with:
• Complimentary tasting of our 2011 Albariño
• Special 20% case discounts Saturday only!
(30% for Wine Club members)
• Shrimp Melt and glass of Albariño $12.
• Sharing on Facebook or Twitter encouraged!
