Summer is but a distant memory in the northern hemisphere , and white wines will soon begin to collect dust on the shelf, but things are just heating up for Rias Baixas – one of Spain’s premier white wine regions. The area’s U.S. campaign (Albariño Explorers Club) is moving into full swing and is preparing for a great 2013. In an effort to increase interest and exposure to Rias Biaxas and the Albariño grape (one of the world’s great white varietals), the search is on for the first-ever Albariño Explorers Club (AEC) Ambassador.
We at Catavino are particularly happy to support this endeavor as one of our own writers, Rick Fisher, is seeking the Ambassadorship. Rick lives in San Diego and has been with Catavino for nearly three years. He is also the creator of Bodega: Adventures in Spanish Food & Wine, a site aimed at educating the world of the incredible wine and gastronomy of Spain.
AEC contest entries are now closed but the selection process is underway, and your voice can HELP! Please stop over and check out Rick’s video submission, leaving a comment to show him your support. The more comments, the more influence you just may have on the judges. While you are there, feel free to join the Albariño Explorers Club and stay up to date on the latest news from one of Spain’s great wine regions.
