Rías Baixas DO
The spectacular success of Rías Baixas' fragrant, fruity white wines since winning DO status in 1988 has given Galician winemaking a new spirit of optimism.
The harnessing of modern technology has also been a key influence in the region's other DOs. Producers range from modern cooperatives to small-scale artesanal producers- here called adegas, the Galician name for bodegas- some of whom now make 'signature' wines of astonishing quality and complexity.
The wider, mass-market success of young Albariño has encouraged winemakers to start experimenting with new techniques.
