Lagar de Costa is a family winery managed with passion and dedication through three generations fully committed to the care of Albariño strains and wine making. Here the Albariño grape is internationally acclaimed for its quality and own characteristics that make it an incomparable wine. The soil is composed by sandy loam, this means that it is loose soil where coarse elements (sand) abound, making water impregnation, airing of the roots, drainage and even work easy. On the other hand, organic material combusts quickly and the ability of this soil to retain water is limited, making it quite warm and pushing forward the ripening of the fruit.
Salnés is located right in the Atlantic region and we can consider all DO Rias Baixas wines as Atlantic ones. In this region, average temperatures stay around 14 ºC throughout the year and rain holds mainly in the autumn and winter, becoming less common towards summer.
The vineyards are between 0 and 10 meters above the sea level and from 0 to 500 meters away from the sea. All of the vineyards are in the parish of Castrelo, within the Complejo Intermareal Umia-O Grove (Red Natura 2000) just oposite the Island of Atocha. The borough of Cambados lies within the demarcation of Salnés.
