Come and discover the spectacular Wine region of Ribeira Sacra, Galicia with Sean O’Rourke Co-Founder of EATour Specialist…
This is without a doubt one of my favourite food & wine touring destinations that is basically unknown by most wine lovers around the world. This will surely change in due time especially after Galicia being listed in Wine Enthusiastrecent article “10 Best Wine Travel Destinations 2015” and a piece on the Ribeira Sacra has appeared in the New York Times “Wine From a Sacred Place“.

I would be glad to show you around this area, in fact after over 15 years of guiding wine tours in Galicia it is always a treat spending time in such a beautiful gastro-region.

In this territory we also find dolmens and megalithic tombs that evidence a very early settlement, continuing with important traces of a Roman presence.
