ABOUT RIAS BIAXAS
Rias Baixas' coastline is comprised of inlets reminiscent of Norway’s fjords and boasts some of Spain’s most stunning beaches and an endless supply of fresh seafood. Rías Baixas is also the birthplace of Albariño, Spain’s best known white variety. In Rías Baixas, this grape shares the same nutrient-poor but mineral-rich soils and moderate climate as other renowned white wine producing regions. Most of the D.O. Rias Baixas appellation wines come from the area of Salnés right on the Atlantic coastline, but the zones of Condado and Rosal have a much longer history of grape growing and winemaking. The two other subregions of Soutomaior and Ribera de Ulla were added to the Rias Baixas D.O. in 1996 and 2000 respectively.
