Rias Baixas

The Rías Baixas (Galician for "Lower Rias") are a series of four estuarine inlets located on the south-western coast of Galicia, Spain. A specific type of white wine, Albariño, originated in the Rías Baixas and now takes up 90% of the wine produced there. This wine is especially successful in the area because the vines are able to withstand and even thrive in the moist, coastal, climate.
