This experience combines a visit to some of the most beautiful palatial and stately gardens in Galicia with a tour of the vineyards and wineries featuring a Designation of Origin.
On this trip, the wine will be paired with the excellent fish and shellfish of Galicia’s estuaries.
In these spaces, the camellia blossoms shine with their own light, accompanied by other species – both native and exotic – of great botanical and aesthetic value, tended with loving dedication. During our journey, we’ll also be surrounded by gardens, orchards and vineyards, from whose grapes the excellent DO wines of Galicia are made.
Cambados, a stately fishing town, is located in the region of O Salnés in Pontevedra, in the Rías Baixas. It is an excellent starting point for this adventure which marries vineyard and garden. Getting here will be very easy thanks to the proximity of the Atlantic Motorway (AP-9) and other major roads.
Another attraction inside the walls of the pazo is its historical vineyard, the tour of which is organised by the Gil Armada Winery. It is possible to walk around the plantation guided by a winemaking expert, who will explain the particular qualities of this grape, how it is grown, its climate and its soil. She’ll then stay with us during the final tasting to help us identify aromas reminiscent of lemon, wet grass, wild rose or tropical fruits. A whole symphony of smells and tastes that can emanate from our wineglass.
At the end of the gardens – where these ancient vineyards are preserved – is the “magic” forest. The nickname is welldeserved, as it appears by surprise after passing through a corridor of trellised vines. As if by magic, we are within an impressive boxwood vault, surrounded by native species such as ancient chestnut and oak trees. We’ll also pay a visit to the garden, which – depending on the season – is invaded by different colours and scents, thanks to roses, peonies, lilacs, heliotropes, mock-oranges and lilies of the valley, to mention just a few.
