Located in the southwest of Galicia, the Rías Baixas D.O. was founded for the first time in 1980. The main grape of this land is Albariño, although other varieties are also grown.
Thus, the D.O. is divided into 5 sub-areas: El Valle del Salnés, El Condado de Tea, El Rosal, Soutomaior, Ribera del Ulla.
In the subzone of Condado do Tea (D.O Rías Baixas) located in the south of the province of Pontevedra, the majority of the vineyards are oriented towards the south and are bounded on this side by the river Miño. These lands are in turn crossed by another river, the Tea River, which crosses them from north to south, from the northern area where the mountains mark the limit of Condado do Tea. Its soils are granitic and sandy enough to drain the abundant rains.
In DO Rías Baixas, most of the vineyards are located a short distance from the sea, so they are shallow and shallow soils, reaching a maximum of 300 metres above sea level. This location causes the soils to be characterized by being mainly sandy and mineral, especially granitic, and somewhat acidic, which gives a touch of salinity to the wines.
