Klinker Brick Winery Albariño

August 1st is International Albariño Day! Traditionally, the Albariño grape is grown in Rias Baixas, a wine region in Galicia, Spain. However, Lodi, California, is knocking out some pretty outstanding Albariño, too! So, today I’m high-lighting my favorite Klinker Brick Winery Albariño from Lodi, CA.

I first tasted this particular wine at the Wine Bloggers Conference last August in Lodi. Those peach and apricot aromas on the nose, along with the high acidity on the palate, paired nicely with the tossed kale salad we had at dinner.

With the Klinker Brick family (pictures featured above and below), I also had the unique opportunity to taste a variety of other Klinker Brick wines, which are all exceptional.

There is so much happening this week internationally with Albariño, stay tuned with #AlbarinoFiesta and Lodi tour of Albariño! Wow, wish I could be there this week in Lodi, and try that delicious Klinker Brick Albariño sorbet!!
