Tour Details

Visit two different gorgeous wineries, in private fashion, to learn the ins and outs of ancient winemaking traditions unique to Europe. Most wineries in the Salnée Valley source their grapes from tiny plots in the Atlantic Ocean, believed to be where the wine gets its crisp, saline touch--or as winemakers call it, a "pronounced minerality." This private Vigo shore excursion is prepared to delight your eyes and taste buds.

Start your private tour with a gorgeous drive (in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle) to the Salnée Valley. This scenic drive lasts about an hour and a half, offering a plethora of beautiful landscapes and photo opportunities. Arrive at the fabulous Pazo Baion estate, a historic palace dating back to the 16th century. This gorgeous chateau is surrounded by vineyards, located in a former dairy farm. Extensive restorations have provided a gallant tasting room, banqueting hall, and beautiful courtyard.

Your second stop is Don Olegario, a charming family winery run by brother and sister, Maria and Fernando Falcon. This delightful spot is less than 10 acres, but has plenty to offer the eyes. The estate is surrounded by vines with an elegant rear terrace used for tasting and intimate concerts. In 2008, Wall Street Journal voted Don Olegario the fourth most delicious wine in the world. Tastings will include an artisanal shellfish pate, tapas, and lightly chilled Albariño.

The wineries on this tour are subject to seasonal availability, especially during harvest time. In the event Pazo Baion and Don Olegario are closed, equally superb alternatives are available. One is Pazo de Rubianes, featuring one of the finest camellia tree collections in the world.

Book this private Vigo shore excursion today for an incredible day in Spain's countryside, drinking wine and enjoying breathtaking sights.
