Introduction

Your Food, Wine & Expert Guide will meet you at the starting point in Ribadavia. An excellent option for those who would like traveling and walking, learning about local wines and the region and who enjoy a good lunch.

On this guided tour of the land of Ribeiro enjoy walking thru old wine country roads visiting the wine museum to learn the history of the oldest Appellation of Origin in Galicia. The heart of the wine country is a quaint town called Ribadavia with an interesting Jewish past which played a big part in the production of wine and is part of the Sephardic routes in Spain. Here we will taste the blended whites and reds as well the mono-varietal of the Treixadura grape (white). You will also visit the historic and well preserved Old Town and Jewish Quarter of Ribadavia, the capital of the Ribeiro wine-producing region and famous for its annual, medieval festival. Ribadavia is in the interior of Galicia at the confluence of two rivers surrounded by mountains and vineyards.

It’s medieval Old Town and Jewish quarter which was established in the 11th century are well preserved. You will explore its cobbled streets including the old, fortified Castle, and admire some of its old churches like the 12th century Santiago Church and other monuments like the House of the Inquisition. You can see the oldest tavern in Galicia, Papuxa which dates back over 500 years. Try a Jewish cake/sweet from the pastry shop, Tahonia Herminia. In the Praza Maior, the town’s main square you can stop and have a coffee in one of the numerous terraces. Ribadavia is the capital of the Ribeiro wine producing area and the town’s outskirts are surrounded by vineyards. Wine has been cultivated here for over 1000 years and its white wines are arguably some of the best in Spain.
