On this half day tour you visit the winery Adegas Algueira in Doade and explore the River Sil. The area is know as the Ribeira Sacra (Sacred River Bank) named this because of the numerous amount of Monasteries that sting along the banks of the river gorge. A wise note to remember is when you find a large concentration of monasteries in such short distances of each other, that mean there is likely to be found excellent wines, that is the case with this area, it is another Denomination of Origin in Galicia, the D.O. Ribeira Sacra. The most popular type of wine made in this region is a red wine made from the Mencia grape variety. Production of this wine is very limited, but very high quality. This is due to the situation of the plantations which spread over the steep river banks. You will visit to a winery in the area with high quality wines. Lunch will be in the winery.
