Albariño is the primary white grape variety of the Rías Baixas D.O., found in northwest Spain’s Galicia. The wines are typically light, crisp and refreshing—the perfect thing for a hot summer afternoon.
For my 40th birthday I took a much-needed get away to Napa. We visited my friend Jeff Miller and his wife Beryl. Jeff lives in Napa and grows and makes wines in the Suisun Valley AVA under several labels: Seven Artisans, Sly Dog Cellars, and Red Côte.
