The resulting bunches are small, ripening early and displaying medium vigor. The grapes themselves are petite, exhibiting a golden and green iridescence, with elegant floral and fruity aromas. Their flavor profile is characterized by freshness and smoothness. - Lagar de Besada

Where The Wines Come From

Rías Baixas

Rías Baixas, located in the northwest corner of Spain, is renowned for its crisp and aromatic Albariño wines. In recent years, the region has also become a focal point for natural winemaking. With its maritime climate, lush green landscapes, and granite-rich soils, Rías Baixas provides an ideal setting for sustainable viticulture. Natural winemakers in the region prioritize organic and biodynamic farming practices, cultivating Albariño grapes with minimal intervention to showcase the terroir's unique characteristics. By eschewing chemical pesticides and additives, they allow the grapes to ferment spontaneously, resulting in wines that are vibrant, expressive, and true to their origins. Rías Baixas' natural wines often exhibit bright acidity, citrus and tropical fruit flavors, and a distinct minerality derived from the region's coastal influences. As the demand for authentic and terroir-driven wines continues to grow, Rías Baixas stands as a shining example of Spain's commitment to sustainable winemaking and quality.
