Founded in 1860, the winery Santiago Ruiz is considered one of the pioneers Of the Rias Baixas Denomination of Origin. Its founder dedicated the last years of his life to his authentic vocation to make wines and was the first to incorporate the then revolutionary stainless steel deposits in the process of vinification in the area. Today her daughter Rosa Ruiz represents the continuity of that spirit in the firm. The winery and its vineyard are located in the region of O Rosal, the southernmost of the five subzones of the D.O. Rias Baixas.
