Vintage 2017 is over and Tim is heading to Galicia – home of Albariño. We are having a Albariño love-in at Neudorf. This year’s crop showed an increase in tonnage which will be good news to our distributors who have been anxious to get some in stock. Albariño is deliciously briny and matches Nelson’s seafood effortlessly.

So Tim is spending some time in Galicia to investigating the wines of Rias Baixas (something more than 80% of their wines are based on the sturdy Albariño grape. The most famous Galician seafood includes oysters from Arcade, clams from Carril, spider crabs from O Grove, scallops from Cambados, lobsters from A Guarda, goose barnacles from O Roncudo, coquinas (a tiny clam) from O Barqueiro. I think he will have a memorable visit.
