Wine: Looking to try a new white wine? Then gotta try this Ribeiro wine, it's quite impressive! The most famous grape of the region, Treixadura (pronounced tray-sha-dura) provides the wine with a fresh, delicate, citrus character as well as good acidity. And given the close proximity to the Atlantic coast, this wine is rich in minerality and pairs fabulously with seafood.
For the wine geeks - Note that Ribeiro is a completely different region to other similar-sounding Spanish wine region such as Ribera del Duero & Ribeira Sacra. (The Spaniards just like to keep you on your toes!) Ribeiro is the oldest wine region in Galicia and is well respected in Spain for its quality white wines.
