I thought it only appropriate that with all the Celtic connections we have here in Galicia (not to mention me being a McCarthy), that we should wish all our Irish cousins a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. No doubt there will be plenty of drinking in the Emerald Isle tomorrow, albeit probably more of the ‘black stuff’ than of our own Albariño. Having said that, we do have a very good importer for our wine, both North and South of the border, so it will be available….
The above photograph reminds me of my very first visit to Galicia several years ago, on a balmy summers evening, enjoying a chilled glass of Albariño, and at the same time being entertained by a band of pipes and drums. I have to say that it seemed very surreal at the time as I had no idea that the bagpipe had been adopted in this part of Spain.
