Strolling Through Vineyards

Cambados, the cradle of Albariño wine

We’ll arrive at  Cambados at dusk. If we decide to stay in a building of historical importance that is also a monument, the old Pazo de Bazán, a state-owned hotel, located right in the centre, is eminently suitable. The ancestors of the writer Emilia Pardo Bazán had it built in the seventeenth century. At one time, General De Gaulle stayed within its walls.

The wine festival

The state-owned hotel is accessible via Rúa Príncipe, crossing the Paseo da Calzada, a lovely tree-lined avenue of poplars and black poplars that becomes a scintillating throng thanks to the Festa do Viño Albariño, an official Tourist Event. During that week, there’s an invasion of dozens of stands set up by the area’s best wineries, which offer their Albariño wines at affordable prices.

The sea and its delicacies

We cross the tree-lined avenue and reach the Boardwalk. Following a line of palms and green spaces, we can skirt a section of the coast or enter the marina. In both cases, we’ll have the islands of A Toxa and Arousa and the peninsula of O Grove right in front of us. In the sea, hundreds of shellfish rafts – floating platforms for cultivating mussels, oysters and scallops.

We have before us one of the planet’s largest deposits of phytoplankton. With good reason, it is said of the estuaries – and in particular the one in Cambados – that they are the sanctuary of shellfish, in addition to that of the Albariño wine. All the hotels, restaurants and tapas bars in the village offer a selection of excellent quality products on their menus. We’ll see how true this is when we sit down to dinner.
