In recent years, more and more people all over the world have fallen in love with the spectacular wines from Designation of Origin Rías Baixas, the northwestern Spanish wine region whose signature wines are the whites starring native grape Albariño.
Therefore, the timing couldn't be more perfect for the launch of the Ruta do Viño Rías Baixas website in English. In the words of Lorena Varela, the manager of the non-profit organization that comprises this wine route, the Club de Producto de las Rutas del Vino de España, “In this way, we are taking a step forward in terms of the quality of the information [targeted] at our visitors, by attempting to catch the attention of Internet users around the world.”
The website, http://rutadelvinoriasbaixas.com/en/, features a wealth of information about, not only wineries, but also restaurants, accommodation, specialty shops, festivals, museums and other sites to see in the area that encompasses the five sub-zones (O Rosal, Condado de Tea, Soutomaior, Val do Salnés and Ribeira do Ulla) that make up this important Galician wine region.
Visitors to the site can also use the English-language “design your route” tool to create their own itinerary through the area, thereby making sure that they won’t miss anything along the way.
There has never been a better time to visit DO Rías Baixas – a region whose 2017 harvest has incidentally been classified as Muy Buena (very good) by the official tasting committee – so what are you waiting for?
