The history of Bodegas As Laxas dates to 1975 when the family of Simon Ferro completed their inaugural harvest. As Laxas was one of the first wineries in Rías Baixas (prior to the official founding of the DO) and is a founding member of the Regulation Council of 1986.
The winery is located in the Miño River Valley, in the village of Arbo. 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.
