Rias Baixas is Albariño wine country
If you are traveling in Spain and to the popular city of Santiago de Compostela of Galicia, consider a side trip to the Rias Baixas wine region of Galicia. Rias Baixas is the land of the Albariño grape. Here, estuaries called rias define the Atlantic coastline. The word baixas refers to the estuaries that are lower or to the south. The Albariño grape makes a crisp, refreshing, and fruity wine with a character all its own. The center of the Rias Baixas and Albariño wine region is the town of Cambados. From Cambados there are several bodegas you can visit within just a few miles. There are almost two hundred wineries in this region. We have selected ones thatwe think are interesting and are relatively accessible to tourists.
