Grilled Sardines is typical Spanish. The dish deserves a Spanish white wine with fresh acidity. Albariño is a perfect match. Also note that Alvarinho is the Portuguese name for the same grape.

A French Sauvignon Blanc, like Pouilly Fumé from Loire, will also work very well.

Italians would drink Vermentino.

Everyone would like a sparkling Rosé.
