Introduction

the Heart of Albariño wine country, the valley of O Salnes, which is one of the sub-zones of the D.O. Rias Baixas wine region. Here we will make a special visiting to a winery located inside a Galician Pazo (Manor house) and as well the most important winery of the region. 

In 1979, the couple formed by Marisol Bueno and Javier Mareque  bought the Pazo de Señorans galician manor house  in which kiwis and grapes of the Albariño variety were grown. 

Pazo Baion is a charming site, a micro-universe with different natural spaces as well as some Galician buildings like  the “pazos” (ancestral homes). Enjoy this tour through the vineyards and winery to discover how Pazo Baión’s Albariño wines are made.

The church of A Lanzada, contains a statue of a Virgin linked to fertility rituals, and a necropolis from the 4th century BCE. It's in a unique location where heritage and nature blend together.

The old quarter in Combarro, which has been declared Property of Cultural Interest, is a representative example of three traditional architectural elements in Galicia: "hórreos" (raised granaries), "casas marineras" (sea houses) and crosses. It is considered for many as the prettiest Galician village. 

After your day with us you will see that Galicia is more than just one region within Spain, but really a Nation of its own with so much to be discovered and savored!

The tour owner allowed us to customize our tour a little . We went to two different Albariño vineyards , had lunch at Culler de Pau and walked around a medieval section of a neighboring town with a view of the bay. Sean was a great guide and our whole family had a great time . Since Albariño is one of our favorite wines . We had looked forward to this tour for months. If we are ever back in Galicia, we would definitely use this company for want tours of the region.
