REFRESHING, ELEGANT, BEAUTIFUL TEXTURE Treixadura is the signature grape of the Ribeiro district that surrounds the city of Ourense. Here vineyards perch on gentle slopes overlooking the area’s innumerable creekbeds and river valleys. While less famous internationally than the Albariños of the neighboring Rias Baixas, these whites have been staples of Spanish tavern dining for decades. PS – In a confusing twist, the Torrontés here is likely unrelated to the Torrontés of South America. Serving Suggestions: The ultimate seafood white! Pulpo a feira ("fair-style octopus") is the Ourense classic, boiled carefully and covered in olive oil, sea salt and paprika, with tiny potatoes on the side, but this will be just as at home with a fresh North Carolina shrimp.
