  • Glorious Galicia: Lagar de Costa

    Galicia, located in the northwest of Spain, is riding the crest of a winemaking wave right now and their signature grape, Albariño, is leading the charge.  An aromatic and versatile variety that tends to produce high acidity, light-medium bodied wines with plenty of pear, citrus and floral notes, Albariño is proving to be a worthy alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.  Rías Baixas ...

Last week a team from O’Briens were lucky enough to tag along on one such trip in to the Wicklow Mountains.

    At first, we are confronted with a wash of gree...

Therefore, we put together a selection of those special wines to tempt ...
