At Galician Roots, we know that Galicia can boast about being a land with a great enotouristic potential, due both to the quality of the soil for the grape harvest and the care that the wineries dedicate to the process until the wine reaches our table. The winemaking is a millenary procedure that Galician wineries have superbly managed to combine with the new technologies, in fact, Galicia currently has five Designations of Origin.
: located in the west coast of A Coruña province and almost the entire coast of Pontevedra province, very well known for the Albariño wine production and for being the most touristic area of Galicia.
: placed in the province of Ourense in the region of O Ribeiro at the convergence of the valleys formed by the rivers Miño, Avia and Arnoia.
: it includes the riverbanks of the rivers Sil, Cabe and Miño in the south of Lugo province and the northern part of the Ourense province, the flavourful Mencía grape variety stands out.
: this Designation of Origin can be found in the south of the province of Ourense in the municipalities of Castrelo de Val, Monterrei, Oimbra, Vilardevós and Verín.
: in the northwest of the province of Ourense is situated the region of Valdeorras marked by a winemaking tradition dating back to the Roman times.
