Galicia | SPAIN
The wines of Viña Costeira belong to the oldest Designation of Origin (DO) in Galicia and, probably, one of the oldest in Europe: Ribeiro DO. Among the historical riches of Ribeiro wines is the varietal diversity. Far from having the level appearance of a monoculture, the different varieties turn the landscape of the Ribeiro region into an amaze tapestry and provide the wine with incredible combinations of nuances and aromas.
Treixadura, Torrontés, Loureira, Lado, Albariño, and Godello are the main local grape varieties used to produce white wines and are responsible for the resulting freshness, body, and aromas. Caíño, Brancellao, Sousón, Ferrón, and Mencía are the main varieties in the reds, which are tasty and of increasing quality.
