The truth is, what makes the holidays easier is taking a step back and cutting off all the noise. Take a moment to close your eyes and think of someplace more relaxing, where the pace of life is always manageable and days are lived to their zesty fullest all year. Ole! Did you say Spain?
That’s right, Spain. The Spaniards lead colorful, playful lives, so what could be better than adding some Spanish flair to your holidays? Consider how an easy to fill tapas board could make your holidays easy to prepare and easy to enjoy. All you’ll need is a glass of wine and Albariño from “Green Spain,” aka Rías Baixas. It’s the perfect accompaniment to almost everything you’ll want to cook up over the coming months.
With a fresh character that features fine mineral notes and a wonderful array of fruit flavors that range from mango and peach to lemon and quince, Albariño is a great way to get one’s palate ready for celebrating. And while Albariño can be light and crisp, it’s a middleweight champ ready to punch above its weight class, hanging tough with big, rich and bold dishes in a way that sets it apart from most other white wines.
So make it a point to add some Spanish soul to your celebration and check out some of the great, easy to prepare dishes that will not only sing with Albariño, but will give you some time to enjoy yourself this holiday season!
