DO Rías Baixas
The Salnés Valley is one of the five sub-zones that belong to the “Rías Baixas” Designation of Origin.
It is the region with the designation of origin’s greatest area of vines, centred on the municipality of Cambados.
The region has an Atlantic influence featuring mild mean temperatures and high precipitation, with poor, sandy soils that are ideal for cultivating the Albariño grape variety.
