Rías Baixas is the Spanish Denominación de Origen (DO) for wines located in the province of Pontevedra and in the south of the province of Corunna in the autonomous region of Galicia in Spain. It is famous for its white wines made from the Albariño variety. Its headquarters are located in Pontevedra.

It was believed that the Albariño grapes were introduced to the area in the 12th century by the Cistercian monks of the Armenian monastery.

The so-called Rosalia and Condado have a long history of grape and wine production, boasting their own traditional styles. The Salnés sub-area has recently started producing Albariño wines for local sale in bars and restaurants.

Rías Baixas received the official status of Denominación de Origen (DO) in 1988. It replaced the "Denominación Específica Albariño" status, which was granted in 1980.
