What wine-producing region is known as “green Spain”?
B. The Basque Region
D. Rías Baixas
The region of Rías Baixas in the province of Galicia in the country’s northwest corner is a place of ocean breezes, winding estuaries, and lush vegetation reminiscent of Ireland. It’s often called “green Spain.” It could probably also be known as “white Spain” because it is home to one of the most exciting Spanish white wines— Albariño, a vibrant varietal with aromas of apricot and peaches with a citrusy core. Albariño has been popular among the seafood-eating people of Galicia for centuries.
