A MIÑA VIAXE
Rías Baixas, O Ribeiro, Ribeira Sacra, Valdeorras and Monterrei are the five denominations of origin that are currently protecting some of the world’s finest wines.
Tradition narrates that the farming of the vine en the Rías Baixas is due to the monks of the Cistercian monastery of Armenteira (Meis)
The D.O. Monterrei is located in the southeast part of the province of Ourense, bordering the Portuguese frontier.
O Ribeiro is situated in the most western part of the province of Ourense, in the confluence of the Miño, Avia, Arnoia and Barbantiño River valleys.
The result of this legacy is the Sil and Miño land, with a valuable heritage of monasteries – which irradiated art, culture and progress to all of Galicia.
The wealth in natural resources and the lands fertility made Valdeorras a reception area of many peoples along history.
