Rías Baixas Sub-Region: O Rosal
One of five sub-regions of Rias Baixas, O Rosal hugs the Miño River where it greets the Atlantic Ocean. Terraced vineyards offer views across the border to Portugal. Planted mostly with Albariño, white grapes Godello, Loureiro, and Treixadura often appear in blends. Granite soils and cool ocean breezes contribute stony minerality and crisp acidity to the peach-scented wines. Aside from grapes, this picturesque area has long been the domain of fishermen, notably in the village of A Guarda.
