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.
