Adegas Galegas | Rías Baixes, Spain
Adegas Galegas founded in 1995, is a modern winery that through continuous investment in research, innovation, and talented individuals, has been characterised for the quality of its wines from the very beginning. The winery is located in Meder (Pontevedra) and is part of the Rías Baixas Designation of Origin (DO).
After achieving prominence for producing world-class Albarino and becoming one of the strongest boutique brands in Spain, Adegas Galegas was acquired by a prominent group of Galician winegrowers in 2012. This group of knowledgeable growers and winemakers has been able to update the cellars and continue improving the vineyard management practices in Adegas Galegas’s historic vineyards.
Shortly thereafter, Asunción Carballo was brought in as head winemaker and now leads a team dedicated to producing wines of true regional character coupled with modern and cutting edge winemaking. Asunción Carballo has the distinction of being the highest ranked Spanish white winemaker by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, and represents a new wave of talented, young female winemakers in Spain.
Under this new management, Adegas Galegas has expanded their vineyard holdings to produce Godello from the Monterrei DO, and Mencía from DO Bierzo.
