History and Culture
The Rías Baixas Designation of Origin stretches across the provinces of Pontevedra and A Coruña, spanning the intervening territory between the outskirts of Santiago de Compostela and where the River Miño joins the Atlantic Ocean and the frontier with Portugal.
The rounded coasts of the “rías” join the rushing rivers and sheltered valleys to form a singular landscape dominated by vineyards and small villages. Travellers find a legend at every turn, a special landscape, a reason for stopping on the way and enjoying its people, its culture and of course its cuisine, accompanied by a Rías Baixas D.O. wine.
The Rías Baixas Wine Route has hundreds of ideas for wine tourism, including more than 50 wineries to visit, that along with hotels of charm, select restaurants and other leisure facilities, provide a comprehensive tourism offer built around the heritage of wine.
