Bodegas As LaxasAS LAXAS WINE CELLARS: CENTURIES OF WINE
The brand is born from the hand of Simón Ferro family who purchased these wine cellars in 1975, where wines of the County were elaborated since 1862.

At the time, the property had roughly a hectare of traditionally grown vineyard and, what began as a complementary activity to the familiar economy became over the years in a company itself, true to the vision of the family who from the beginning was enthusiastic in obtaining a premium quality white wine. Nowadays, the company is property of the founders' four sons.

In 1986, the winery is built up and it participates as D.O Rias Baixas founder. At this point a progressive growth is established and it has gone from producing 8.000 bottles per year to 520.000 in less than a decade at the present time.

Nowadays, the winery has its own vineyard covering a surface area of around 50 hectares and, in the last five years, it has made investments in machinery and equipment amounting to almost 600.000 Euros; special focus being given on adaptation of technological developments to the traditional method of wine elaboration. These investments refer to all aspects of production, from the own viticulture to the upgrading of wine storage, bottling line and traceability systems; not forgetting the economic and financial management.

As Laxas Wine cellars is also a pioneer in the development of its national and international commercial network and, at present, these wines (Laxas and Val do Sosego - elaborated with grapes 100 percent from the Albariño variety – Condado Laxas – a mixture of albariño, treixadura and loureiro – and Bágoa do miño – "Lágrima" of albariño) are consumed in around twenty countries.
