Close to the Portuguese border and next to the River Miño, this southern part of Galicia boasts an incredibly diverse landscape, with a mountainous backdrop, and green inland alongside its picturesque coastal view. This is a setting which shows clearly in the region’s wines. The Rías Baixas is home to many wonderful indigenous varieties, including the well-known Albarino grape, which features prominently in many of Adegas Galegas’ wines. Translated from Galician, “Adegas Galegas” simply means “The Galician Winery”.
Despite only being founded in 1995, the winery has succeeded in its quest to combine the production of classic, traditional varieties with high quality, modern winemaking techniques. Pepe Rodriguez, managing director of the winery, was a pioneer in the evolution of the Galician wine scene; known as the father of modern Albariños he was responsible for putting Rías Baixas on the map. Today, the white wines of Adegas Galegas are considered some of the very best in Spain.
