Considered to be one of Rías Baixas’ most emblematic wineries, Terras Gauda routinely produces award-winning white wines made solely from estate-grown fruit.
Many attribute the estate with being responsible for the advancement and development of the appellation as a whole, due to its sincere dedication to quality control and preserving the native grape varieties of Galicia.
