About Bodegas As Laxas
Bodegas As Laxas has a long and rich tradition reaching back to 1862. A fire destroyed the winery in 1960, but the family rebuilt it with new winemaking equipment and technology. The family-run winery was one of the first in Rias Baixas to receive D.O. status. Here is a link to the tech sheet on the 2015 Laxas Albariño posted by Frontier Wine Imports.
