Sonia Costa

Sonia Costa - Lagar de Costa, Cambados, Pontevedra

Cambados, the seaside town looking out over the Ría de Arousa in the heart of Galicia’s Rias Baixas region is the home of albariño. 

Sonia is a third generation of this historic century old family business with vineyards that run down to the Atlantic Ocean, some vines are over fifty years old and yields are kept well below D.O. average. 

Quality is rigorously controlled both in their vineyards - which sit a mere 30m above sea level - and in the winery where traditional techniques are employed.
