International Albariño Day was inspired by the Albariño Wine Festival in the 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 produces crisp, acidic white wines ideal for summer evenings and seafood pairings. It is also grown in Portugal, where it is known as Alvarinho. Now it is catching on in North America.
