DO Ribeira Sacra

The Ribeira Sacra designation of Origin was created in 1996. It is an area of wine production with an area of 2,500 hectares of vineyards, which represent 5.2% of the land dedicated to the vineyard in Galicia. It comprises parishes and places of 20 municipalities located along the banks of the Miño and del Sil, in the south of the province of Lugo and north of Ourense.

DO Valdeorras

The winemaking tradition of Valdeorras dates back to Roman times. Under the protection of a Mediterranean-oceanic microclimate, the Romans planted vineyards and built wineries. Thus they gave rise to a culture, today secular, in the attention of the vineyard and the elaboration of exquisite wines, to which pilgrims and pilgrims sang on the way to Santiago.

DO Rias Baixas

The Rías Baixas Designation of Origin is located in the Northwest of Spain, in the region of Galicia, characterized by the permanent greenery of its landscape and the influence of the Atlantic Ocean. One of the determining factors of the DO Rías Baixas is the commitment to the native varieties, resistant to the climate of this area, among which are the Albariño, a fundamental pillar of this denomination.
