Libby from Florida wrote her favorite pairing is “a beautiful albarino paired with a soothing, refreshing fish stew. It’s a marriage of flavors from a region where albarino and seafood evolved together, securing a place in Spain’s culture while educating the rest of the world about how a wine pairing is mean to be. Each taste makes the other taste better and together, they are elevated to a new flavor profile – the place where the pairings sing in harmony together.”

“For a cold winter night, I’d make a pot of beef stew served with rustic bread. Add a little ambience with a fireplace lit, candles on the table, soft music and a nice tempranillo! Want to join me?”
