The vineyard, the garden and the “magic” forest of the Pazo de Fefiñáns
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.
