Staff Pick Notes

Bring on the warm weather, and with it, naturally, light and fresh whites like this! As the predominate grape of Rias Baixas in Spain's steep, coastal northwest., Albarino already has a devout following because of its versatile nature.

Vibrant acidity makes for a dry, refreshing finish. This is a wine for your next party that is sure to please the entire crowd. And that is in itself an accomplishment worth toasting!
