In order to combine the wine richness of two subzones of the D.O. Rías Baixas, O Rosal and O Condado, in 1995 Adegas Galegas, a winery that from the beginning has been characterized by the quality of its wines and admiration for nature and tradition is founded. Its vineyards grapes are obtained to produce wines as D. Pedro de Soutomaior or Veigadares, backed by major international competitions and considered two of the best white wines of Spain.
In addition to installations in Meder, Salvaterra do Mino, Adegas Galegas has facilities in the Pazo de Almuíña, located in the municipality of Arbo. The manor is surrounded by 6 acres of vineyard of Albariño and Treixadura planted taking advantage of the slope of the property and creating terraces which by their own nature prevent vegetative stops and promote optimal and uniform ripening.
The Pazo, main character of these vineyards is part of the Galician Heritage and stands in the old Camino Real that connected southern Galicia with the Peninsula. Since its beginning it was dedicated to agricultural activities and thus emerges from the word itself Almuíña, which comes from the Arabic etymology and means orchard. Even the Celtic derivation of "muín" meaning vine, links it directly to growing grapes.
The Pazo de Almuíña is also the center of wine of Adegas Galegas, where besides offering different activities such as guided tours, commented tastings and different wine tourism packages, visitors can stay in one of 10 rooms set around a central courtyard, where you can find one of the most unique hórreos (granaries) in the world.
