Segment-1: Spanish Wines - TAPAS Announces Int'l Albariño Day, a Celebration of Albariño, August 4 - Richard Longoria
 
01: TAPAS – Tempranillo Advocates, Producers, and Amigos Society – announces the first annual International Albariño Day, a celebration of the Albariño grape, on Saturday, August 4, 2012. Share your experiences online with the hashtag #AlbarinoFiesta. International Albariño Day was inspired by the annual Fiesta del Albariño 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 is considered one of the country’s finest white wines. Its lower alcohol and crisp acidity make it an ideal wine for summer evenings and seafood pairings. Richard Longoria is the owner and winemaker for Longoria Wines... handcrafted in very small quantities ranging from 50 to 700 cases. Total annual production currently averages 3,500 cases.
