About Galicia

Galicia is the province occupying the northwest corner of Spain, and for the most part white wines reign throughout Galicia. Major denominated Galician regions include Rías Baixas, which is known for the increasingly popular Albariño grape and eponymous varietal wine; Ribeiro, which features blended whites incorporating grapes like Torrontés, Treixadura, Loureira and Albariño; and Valdeorras, where the Godello grape is most prominent. Galician whites are almost always fresh in style, generally made without oak aging, and are natural accompaniments to seafood and shellfish.
