Entry criteria: producers and UK agents were invited to submit their Albarin?o wines – single varietal or blended with a minimum of 75% Albarin?o/Alvarinho – in any style, vintage or price level, from any region and country other than Spain and Portugal

Albarin?o is the star white variety of Galicia, and specifically of Ri?as Baixas. Other producers in Spain may make it, in Mediterranean and central regions, but nowhere does it do better than on the granite soils and in the maritime climate not far from the pilgrim city of Santiago de Compostela.
