Albariño Wine Gift Set

$49.00

Bottle of Albariño wine, two 12 oz. amber crackle wine glasses crafted of handblown glass, a Gomes Vineyards personalized stainless steel corkscrew and Godiva Chocolate in a gift bag.  

The Albariño grape is a small, green, thick-skinned variety grape that resists fungal disease in the particularly damp climate of Rίas Baixas. Albariño is a low yielding variety and expensive to cultivate. It is also one of the few Spanish white grape varieties produced as a varietal wine on its own and designated on labels and most often fermented in stainless steel for early drinking.

While Rίas Baixas is the birthplace of Albariño, it is also extensively grown in the Vinho Verde region of Portugal and can be found to a lesser extent in both Australia and the United States.

Albariño itself is pretty much the embodiment of Galileo´s famous saying that ¨wine is sunlight held together by water."

 

Testimonials

  • I have always been skeptical of a white ¨speciality¨ wine thinking it may be sweet, and I am not fond of sweet wines.  To my surprise, Albariño is not at all sweet. Vibrant and flavorful, yes, but not sweet.

  • I had never heard of Albariño wine until it was introduced to me by the Gomes.  I love the flavor.  To me it tastes like a blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc which are two of my favorite wines.

    Albariño very chilled is the most refreshing wine I have ever tasted. It is a great ¨cocktail ¨ wine and perfect for our weather any time of year.

    Albariño is a fabulous white wine that is quickly gaining attention although few are producing it. It is dry and crisp with flavors of fruits and spices. It is an exceptionally versatile wine that can be served at any time or season.
