VARIETALS

Albariño grape is the main one in Rías Baixas and one of the most important and popular in Galicia. Bunches are small and have an early ripening. It is a grape with a high level of sugar and acidity which gives crispness to wines. Traditionally grown in emparrado, Albariño becomes a symbol of Galicia.

However, the appellation grows other white and red varietals. Between white ones, we can find treixadura caíño blanco and loureira. These varietals are used in the production of wines of Adegas Galegas.

Caíño Blanco gives to our wines structure, whereas loureira gives them intensity and floral aromas. Treixadura adjusts the acidity of the wine.
