Monterrei, Rías Baixas, Ribeira Sacra, Ribeiro and Valdeorras are the five appellations of Origin in Galicia. It is a certificate of quality that distinguishes the Galician wines because of their taste, their healthiness and, as the name points out, their native origin, since in most cases they are varieties that don't exist in other parts of the world. These five appellations are differentiated by the climate, the ground, and overall, the different varieties of grapes used for their production Moreover, Galicia has three "Viños da Terra" Geographical Indications covering the areas of: "Terra de Barbanza e Iria", "Terra de Betanzos" y "Terra Val do Miño – Ourense".

Galician liquors and spirits are also protected by the Denomination of origin "Augardentes e Licores Tradicionais de Galicia".

To compete in an international market occupied by big business chains with a high volume of production, the wineries with a limited volume, as it is the case of the major part of the Galician wineries, must choose specific markets, giving preference to quality criteria and positioning themselves in the "Premium" segment with competitive prices.

The viticulture has become a engine of the dynamism in rural Galicia, where the ancient traditions of cultivating native varieties now coexist with the modernization of companies and their commitment for innovation, research and advice in order to optimize the results and the quality. As a result of this, Galicia is nowadays one of the areas where the wine range offers a better richness to the consumer.
