Most European wine tours include obligatory visits to the iconic French region of Bordeaux and the gorgeous rolling vineyards of Tuscany. But Galicia, the mountainous northwestern region of Spain? This obscure destination doesn’t generally make the cut. Until recently that is.
Earlier this summer, Obama raised a glass of Pezo do Rei Ribeira Sacra at La Gala de la Hispanidad in Washington D.C. Not only did this toast result in this specific varietal from the Chachin Wineries almost immediately selling out, but it stimulated a rush of investors looking to produce in the region.
A trip to Spain may not be around the corner for all of us, but Galicia has definitely secured its spot on our European bucket list. In the meantime, expanding your palette at home has become much easier with the rise of wine delivery clubs.
