“Laz” enjoyed this Albarino from Palacio de Fefinanes so much that he used a cup of it for this amazingly simple and delicious recipe.

1 1/2 cups of Jasmin rice
16 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 small yellow onion chopped
1/2 small red bell pepper diced
4 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of chopped kale
1 cup of Albarino white wine
1 1/4 cup of water
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of saffron
6 cilantro sprigs diced
1 teaspoon of fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons of olive oil

Saute the onion, red pepper and garlic in olive oil in a medium-sized pot. Add the rice to the pot, and then add all other liquid ingredients and stir. Then, add the kale, shrimp, saffron and cilantro sprigs, stir and bring to a boil. After the liquid boils, reduce heat and cover. Leave untouched for 18-20 minutes and then serve.

Serves four.

Palacio de Fefinanes is housed inside a spectacular baronial palace, which sits on the lovely main square of coastal Cambados. Founded in 1904, the facility was built in 1647 by viscount of Fefiñanes Gonzalo Sarmiento Valladares, and is currently owned by Juan Gil Careaga. Palacio de Fefiñanes was the first producer to bottle wine under the D.O. Rías Baixas denomination. The label design dates from 1928 and shows an engraving of the Fefiñanes Palace. The winemaker is Cristina Mantilla.
