Adorable dog by her side, Sasha tastes a Burgáns lbariño that's perfect for this week's whole fish recipe contest. (Click here to buy.) And don't forget to check out Sasha's site, Spin The Bottle.

I'll have to check out the Pazo. I also fine the Paco and Lola to be affordable and very drinkable ($16 to $20). One thing is for certain, I like the way those Galician women make wine!

Thanks, mt97! And yes, it's definitely a good value -- it's not easy to find an Albariño for under $20, sadly. For a bit more of a splurge, I really like Pazo de Señorans -- usually see that somewhere between $25-$30. Fun fact about Galicia, the region where these wines come from: more than half of the wine producers are women.

I've had a couple of bottles of this this albarino. It's a great wine and normally a pretty good value! Excellent choice (and you're dog is too cute)!

I enjoy these wine videos. And great advice on letting geography be your guide.

Thanks so much! I enjoy making them. (Although my dog seems awfully blasé about the whole affair.)

Kelsey, I loved that detail, too. And Sasha's cute dog.
