Overview

Albillo is a catch-all name for a diverse collection of white grape varieties in Spain. Due to the fact that the name derives from the Spanish word for white, Albillo can differ from region to region, and can even be used for different varieties within a single D.O.! In Ribera del Duero, where white wines are not recognized under D.O. rules, there are several ancient varieties that are called Albillo. Jorge makes it simple however – he only selects Albillo with small clusters and a deep golden color when ripe to make his Blanco.
