Vineyards in Galicia
Wine lovers can indulge in Galicia and do not have to spend a fortune on delicious red and white wines. Below the most famous vineyards and wines of Galicia.
Rias Baixas: Albariño white wine with exotic hues, powerful and fresh. Ideal companions of fresh seafood and fish. What is Rioja in Spain for the red wine, in Galicia is Albariño for the white wine.
Ribeira Sacra: Most red wine is made from the Mencía grape. Young, slim, light and fruity. The grapes in Ribeira Sacra grow on slopes so steep that they have to be picked by hand and transported by boats on the river.
Monterrei: Only more than 30 bodegas are active here, mainly producing white wine. In recent years, more and more emphasis has been placed on quality grapes such as Godello and Treixadura. Great wines.
Valdeorras: Around 1500 ha of vineyards in this area. This is where the Godello – the cluster of modern Galicia – originally came from. The winemakers can hardly handle the demand. Mencía and Garnacha are also planted and deliver excellent wines in Valdeorras.
Ribeiro: For simple white table wines. Especially from Palomino Fino, Torrontés, Treixadura and Loureiro. They are drunk young, delicious with fish.
