Why Albariño?
Albariño has been known to produce outstanding wines in the cool, rainy climate of Galicia, in North West Spain. We first planted it in our Sonoma Coast vineyard, but that proved too cold for ripening even a cool-climate variety like this. After four years, we gave up and grafted the budwood from those vines onto our slightly warmer Russian River Valley estate. We are very excited that it is now thriving in the Don Miguel Vineyard!

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Fresh, lively and mouthfilling, with bright acidity that follows through with an elegant, crisp finish.
Vineyard Notes
The Don Miguel Vineyard Named after the late patriarch of the Torres family, this vineyard is located in the Green Valley — the coolest, foggiest region of the Russian River Valley, only ten miles from the Pacific. The Albariño is trained in a cordon style with alternating spurs (we call them alligator teeth), which adds width to the fruit zone and provides optimum air flow and light quality.
Production Notes
The grapes were harvested September 18-22, then gently whole-cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel. After the primary fermentation, the wine went 100% through malolactic fermentation and was bottled in March 2019.
Food Pairing Notes
Grilled seafood (it's a classic with oysters and clams), smoked salmon, sushi and Asian cuisine - and for sure with tapas!
Production
1058 cases

The first word that comes to mind for this wine is "bright". The tasting notes listed are very accurate. It is our first choice for appetizers and light seafood dishes. Summer is coming and it is time to buy more Albarino!

I shared my last bottle at Hapuna Beach Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. Cold, sleek and as elegant as the surroundings. A beautiful companion on to our Hawaiian meal. It brought back what are now life-long memories of Marimar’s kindnesses to me as a neighbor, the dog walks along the vineyard road watching the seasons.. I am so glad that I can order a bottle of wine that fills my heart with such happy memories and sincere gratitude.
