Bodegas As Laxas Rias Baixas
About Bodegas As Laxas
Family owned and operated since 1862 located in the Condado do Tea subregion of the Rias Baixas DO. The estate vineyards are terraced with a southern exposure overlooking the Mino River, that separates Spain from the northern border of Portugal. Bodegas As Laxas was one of the first 5 bodegas in the region to be awarded the status of D.O. and remains a leader of innovation in winemaking to this day.
The vineyards are over 30 years old and are planted on south-facing granite terraces between 500 and 650 feet. The exceptional micro-climate is characterized by mild temperatures with an annual average of 60ºF, very little frost and abundant rainfall. This micro-climate is ideal for ripening, characterized by a higher sugar content and lower acidity level than more northerly areas of Rías Baixas that face more variable climates.
