Located in the Northwest corner of Spain, in the famous Rías Baixas zone of Galicia, Adegas Galegas was founded in 1995 with a desire to accentuate the unique characteristics of the O Rosado and O Condado sub-zones of the region. The winery is located in Salvaterra do Miño, which sits on the border with Portugal, in the southern-most area of Rías Baixas.
After achieving notoriety for producing world-class Albariño and becoming one of the strongest boutique brands in Spain, Adegas Galegas was acquired by the most prominent group of growers in Galicia in 2012. This group of knowledgeable growers and winemakers has been able to update the cellars and continue improving the vineyard management practices in Adegas Galegas’s historic vineyards.
One of the most noteworthy winemakers of the region, Katia Alvarez, leads a team of mostly women who create incredibly sophisticated wines in the rich tradition of female winemaking in Rías Baixas.
