Rías Baixas Sub-Region: Val do Salnés

If Rias Baixas is the homeland of Albariño, Val do Salnés is the grape’s birthplace. Surrounding the historic town of Cambados, Val do Salnés boasts the highest concentration of wineries and vineyards. This sub-region’s Atlantic Coast location provides perfectly cool and wet conditions for Albariño to thrive. Combined with rocky, granitic soils, ocean breezes contribute a distinct saline minerality to the wine, while firm acidity supports citrus and melon notes.
