Pazos del Rey boasts the singularity of its origin, Monterrei, the denomination which is least wellknown
amongst the Galician wine regions. Monterrei shares the cultivation of the autochthonous
varieties with the neighbouring regions: Godello with Valdeorras, Treixadura with Ribeiro, and
Mencía with Ribeira Sacra, and is the only one of the Galician regions whose territory lies along the
Duero riverbank, although it does not forsake the oceanic influence of the rest, a reason that serves to
warrant the cultivation of the red varieties.
