Join us on the 1st August to celebrate the stunning wines of Rías Baixas.
Rías Baixas: The Heartland of Albariño
D.O. Rías Baixas is widely acknowledged as the heartland of Spain’s most fashionable white grape variety, Albariño.
95% of all grapes grown here are Albariño. Nestled up in the remote north west corner of Spain by the side of the Atlantic Ocean, Rías Baixas is also famous for its lush green landscape, steep terraced vineyards and granite ‘pergolas’, not to mention the cornucopia of fresh fish hauled daily out of the ocean just a stone’s throw away!
Albariño has gained recognition worldwide for its refreshing peach, elderflower, citrus and tropical fruit aromas and silken palate.
Bodegas Martín Códax was founded in 1986 and was named after the most known Galician troubadour whose medieval poems, the oldest of Galician-Portuguese language with the original music, are preserved.
Since it’s founding, Bodegas Martín Códax has grown and developed; always supporting its people, its land and its culture. The culture is promoted in more than 40 countries over the world.
A project that started with the dream and efforts of a group of winegrowers is now a reality, and it is this reality which has let Bodegas Martín Códax become a symbol of Galician wines around the world.
La Rioja Alta’s Lagar de Cervera is a 77 hectare estate, situated in Pontevedra, O Rosal in the south of Rías Baixas on the Portuguese border.
Its unique microclimate allows for early ripening which, in turn benefits the quality of the Lagar de Cervera and Pazo de Seoane Rosal wines, with a perfect ratio of acidity, alcoholic strength and aromatic intensity.
These are young, fresh, elegant whites that are ideal with appetizers, shellfish or fish.
