Albarino is a grape variety that is widely planted in the Rias Baixas region of western Spain just above Portugal. It produces clean, crisp, lively white wines that are very food friendly.
Some producers to look for are Martin Codax, Castro Martin, Valminor and Morgadio. In the USA, producer Bonny Doon has created an Albarino from vines grown in their Ca' del Solo vineyard in Monterey.
Over the border in Portugal the variety is called Alvarino.
