Directions to As Laxas
As Laxas Wine Cellars (Bodega) which is a small family owned business, is located in the parish of Arbo on the banks of the River Mino where wines have been produced on the estate since the close of the19th century.
The vines are influenced by the humid winds from the unspoilt Atlantic Ocean and combined with warm,intense sunlight that capriciously caresses this aristocratic fruit among grapes: albariño. This is a land of remarkable beauty and rural tranquility in a steep terraced landscape facing south,overlooking the majestic River Mino.
