I have just heard this week that I have been selected as a Judge on the DO Rias Baixas Consejo Regulador’s Panel at the Prestigious Annual Cata-Concurso de Albariño which decides the best Albariño wines of the year!
This is a major honour as I am, I believe, the first foreigner to be asked to serve on this panel! Needless to say I accepted with alacrity and look forward to being in Galicia in August.
Many readers will know that Albariño is considered to be the best Spanish white wine grape variety and it is a particular favourite of mine.
My experiences up in Green Spain will of course be posted here!
