Between Baiona and Fisterra you can discover paradise on earth, an extension of coastline cut out by the unique way in which the Atlantic Ocean enters Galicia: the Rías Baixas. Fine sand beaches and clear waters, green islands in the middle of the great blue, forests that look out to the sea, towns that combine the tradition of fishing villages with the spell of bustling summer resorts. And, of course, the fish, shellfish and wines with which this conjunction of fertile land, calm waters and a privileged climate have blessed this area.
The center of this area are the Rías de Arousa and Pontevedra, two sister estuaries that contain the best treasures of the sea.
The impressive landscapes of the Salnés region await us looking at the Ría de Arousa. In an area of a few kilometers, we will be able to see the enormous wealth of this land. With a much milder climate than the inland and northern areas of Galicia, we will find ourselves in a microcosm of Atlantic nature and diverse spirit, the place where the Albariño grapes are born.
Between the sea and the forests , vast areas of vineyards stand out. Here are produced some of the most famous and highest quality white wines in the world. These wines
are also the flagship of our land, and inseparable companions of fish and seafood.
Rías Baixas is one of the five denominations of origin of Galician wines, along with Ribeira Sacra, Ribeiro, Valdeorras and Monterrei.
There are many winegrowers in this area, since the land is cultivated by a smallholding system, in many small properties. In the same way, there are wineries of various sizes, some with productions of great international distribution, and others of smaller size and more artisanal production. Almost 70% of all the wineries in the Rías Baixas Denomination of Origin are concentrated in the Salnes Region.
On this Rías Baixas Route and Wine Tasting Experience, you can visit one or more wineries within the Salnes region. The visit of a second winery has a supplement of 5€ per person.
This is a tailored made experience. Contact us to organize it for you.
