Pilgrimage to Rías Baixas (Slideshow)


A wine-drinking homage to the fount of Galicia’s sainted Albariño

Pilgrim’s Progress

First stop is the square of the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela where a wearied but happy pilgrim joins dozens arriving daily. Walking the last 62 miles (100 km.) gets you a certificate.

Monument to St. James

Legend has it that the remains of the apostle St. James, who was beheaded in Jerusalem in 44 AD, was returned to Galicia and buried. Construction of his cathedral began in 1075.

Take It for Granite!

Galicia may be green, but almost everything is made of granite, including the region’s signature granaries, such as this one at the Pazo de Señoráns estate and winery.

Albariño Advocate

Benito Castelo, 89, was instrumental in forming the large, progressive Bodegas Martín Códax cooperative in 1986 and the Rías Baixas appellation in 1988. He still knows how to green-prune vines.

Rain in Spain

Rías Baixas’ best-known sub-region is the Val do Salnés near Pontevedra, where approaching storm clouds signal another rainy night in Galicia. Salnés is considered Albariño’s birthplace.

Southern Exposures

Farther south, the Condado do Tea and O Rosal sub-regions share a common border with Portugal — the Miño River. These regions are warmer and often feature Albariño blends.

Women in the Lead

Fact: Most head winemakers in Rías Baixas are women, including those from 7 of the 10 wineries I visited. At Castro Martin, Angela Martin explains the pergola system, laid out across huge granite posts.

Risk Taker

At Martin Codax, Katia Álvarez loves to experiment, and her dazzling dry table wine made with botrytized grapes — one of her several enticing elixirs — shows that the reward is worth the risk.

From the Terraces

The elegantly terraced vineyard at Pazo San Mauro — that’s Portugal in the distance — is one several venues where the versatile Cristina Mantilla makes wine or consults.

Blue Bubbles

There’s more inside Mar de Frades’ famous blue bottle than Albariño by the glass. Winemaker Paula Fandiño also is producing some delicious bubbly — alas, not yet sold in the U.S.

What Goes with Albariño?

Albariño is a great match for Galicia’s famed and varied seafood. A morning’s visit to Pontevedra’s mercado finds an array of ocean fare fresh from the Atlantic Ocean and its inlets.

Clamming Up!

Lunch with Jorge Peláez at Marqués de Vizhoja is awash in seafood, starting with simply- prepared clams with a sauce that demand sopping with tasty homemade breads.

Lamprey at Its Best

Lampreys are one of God’s ugliest creatures, but here they look — and taste — ravishing, rolled up and stuffed with eggs and peppers, then sliced thinly. Another glass of Albariño, please.

The Pies Have It

Seafood pies are a staple in the Galician diet, and my favorite at a picnic lunch at the lovely Pazo Baión estate is this crusty tuna pie. Cod pies are also popular.

Last Stop

All good wine trips and all good Albariño advertising campaigns must come to an end. These relics in the Marquéz de Vizhoja shipping department leave me with a big smile.


The Lost Camino Trail of O Morrazo, Rias Baixas - Part 1: Cornfields, Vineyards & Legends of Witches

We have been busy scouting out new routes on the O Morrazo Peninsula of the Rias Baixas in Galicia, Spain. This virtual tour is really a continuation of the walk through the fishing village of Cangas do Morrazo, since we talk about the lost variant of Coastal Way of the Camino de Santiago (St. James Way) over the hills of the O Morrazo Peninsula. Follow part of the way where we think the trail would have gone years ago when the Pilgrims passed through this area of the coast. We follow a stream passing by some Molinos (old mills) where the corn flour was made for generations. A lush green landscape full of small vegetable gardens, cornfields, vineyards even kiwi plantations. Learn how the corn is milled, and how the vines are tied down, etc. Not forgetting about adding the history and legends, we stop at an 18th-century Baroque church with a legend of the "Meigas" (Witches)! There are tales of the past that the bells of the church would ring by themselves on a Saturday night to summon the witches to gather. Ending with following through a portion of a woodland nature trail that leads over the hill to Santiago de Ermelo, which will be on the next part of our virtual camino way!

The Lost Camino Trail of O Morrazo, Rias Baixas - Part 1: Cornfields, Vineyards & Legends of Witches

We have been busy scouting out new routes on the O Morrazo Peninsula of the Rias Baixas in Galicia, Spain. This virtual tour is really a continuation of the walk through the fishing village of Cangas do Morrazo, since we talk about the lost variant of Coastal Way of the Camino de Santiago (St. James Way) over the hills of the O Morrazo Peninsula. Follow part of the way where we think the trail would have gone years ago when the Pilgrims passed through this area of the coast. We follow a stream passing by some Molinos (old mills) where the corn flour was made for generations. A lush green landscape full of small vegetable gardens, cornfields, vineyards even kiwi plantations. Learn how the corn is milled, and how the vines are tied down, etc. Not forgetting about adding the history and legends, we stop at an 18th-century Baroque church with a legend of the "Meigas" (Witches)! There are tales of the past that the bells of the church would ring by themselves on a Saturday night to summon the witches to gather. Ending with following through a portion of a woodland nature trail that leads over the hill to Santiago de Ermelo, which will be on the next part of our virtual camino way!

Meet Sean & Tiernan

Sean & Tiernan

Far from just reading out of tour guide books, Sean O’Rourke has immersed himself in his adopted country (Galicia, Spain) and truly wants you to understand and enjoy its culture. He personally guides their specialized small group historic, gourmet food & wine tours in Galicia. Sean is well versed in the various topics covered on the tour such as Celtic Hill-forts and music, the religious pilgrimage to Santiago, Galician-Roman-Celtic history, wine making, wine tasting, Galician modern & traditional cuisine, etc. Sean’s travels have taken him throughout Europe and Britain extensively. His interest into the Spanish culture has given him the ability to speak fluently in Spanish. Sean would be glad to translate and help with some basic vocabulary while on your vacation in Galicia, Spain. One of Sean’s many pastimes is the study of Ancient Celtic history, Galicia and it’s connection to the other Celtic nations (Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and Isle of Man) has been his latest project and would love to share with you all the legends and stories of Galicia. Sean is Canadian, but of Scottish & Irish roots, alongside his wife Angie who is Galician, and with their son Tiernan, (Following in his Dad's footsteps!) who is new to the travel world but comes with lots of energy and new ideas backed by 4 years of studying Tourism in Galicia, Spain. They make up a great trio team (Eat & Walkabout) offering unique food, wine and walking tours throughout GALICIA, SPAIN’S HIDDEN CELTIC PARADISE!
