Verdejo (ver-DAY-ho)

Grown in (and probably native to) the north-central Spanish province of Rueda. Makes one of Spain’s top dry whites popular for its bay laurel and bitter almond flavors. Verdejo (from verde, “green” in Spanish) can also show a slightly piquant green character in the manner of sauvignon blanc. Indeed, some Rueda wineries blend the two grapes with successful results.
