Rías Baixas

We've done the hard work so you don't have to

Home of the Albariño grape variety, which once upon a time had its own grape specific DO, and whose heartland is the Salnés Valley in Pontevedra province, this now consists of 5 separate sub regions to cope with the madcap increase in the number of wineries here and therefore authorizes other grape varieties found further south, such as Loureiro and Treixadura. Albariño, with bottle age, takes on a slightly petrolly character; and has therefore been linked over the years with Riesling due to the immense historic traffic of Northern European monks through to regional capital Santiago de Compostela, the shrine of the Apostle St. James.

Palacio de Fefiñanes needs no introduction. Morgadío was an experimental farm before the DO, now creating top Albariño alongside Destinos Cruzados, both with a very sustainable ethos.
