SEARCH FOR STARS IN THE STOVES

In As Rías Baixas, you have a wide offer of both traditional and avant-garde gastronomy to offer to your loved ones. A tour in search for the flavours of the province of Pontevedra certainly has to include one or several stops at the restaurants belonging to Grupo Nove, an association that lists several Michelin-starred restaurants and many future star winners. You can make a reservation in Culler de Pau (O Grove), Casa Solla (Poio), Maruja Limón (Vigo), Pepe Vieira (Poio) and Yayo Daporta (Cambados), all of them with a Michelin star. A visit to the restaurants Silabario (Vigo), Pandemonium (Cambados) or Eirado da Leña (Pontevedra) is also a great gastronomic experience. 
You can ask for a gourmet coupon in Grupo Nove’s website or ask its restaurants directly. Now, all you have to do is enjoy it!<

ENOTURISMO EN AS RÍAS BAIXAS

As Rías Baixas es una región privilegiada para el cultivo de la vid. Su clima suave, su orografía irregular y sus suelos arenosos dan como resultado unos vinos de excelente calidad que están dando la vuelta al mundo. Los viñedos de la Denominación de Origen crecen rodeados de patrimonio y rutas de senderismo o se descuelgan en impresionantes pendientes a la orilla del mar, expuestos a los vientos atlánticos. Si tienes en casa o entre tus amistades a una o un enamorado del albariño, tu regalo es la Ruta del Vino Rías Baixas. Incluye catas y degustaciones, visitas a las viñas y acceso a bodegas históricas. Puedes elegir también restaurantes y hoteles situados en las cinco zonas de producción de la uva albariña. ¡Acertarás seguro! 
 

 

WINES AND "TAPAS" IN THE LOCAL MARKETS

Walking through the historic quarters of our sea villages, towns and neighbourhoods is a pleasure for the senses. Now, this experience can be rounded out with a delightful visit to their local markets, which are even more prolific at this time of the year. We can fill our basket with local products with quality seals, like certified potatoes, peppers and other vegetables from our orchards, mussels and seasonal seafood, veal, cheeses or wines. On top of that, the recent incorporation of gastronomic markets allows you to buy your products in the traditional local markets and have them cooked for you on the spot. There is hardly a better place to celebrate your Christmas meals and dinners with friends and relatives. A guaranteed success and a commitment to sustainability.

BE A SHELLFISH GATHERER FOR A FEW HOURS

Do you want to catch shellfish in any of our rías (coastal inlets)? In the province of Pontevedra there are already companies and associations offering practical courses about shellfish gathering and group visits to extraordinary places, like Cortegada Island, or to our fish ports and markets to know the destination of the excellent products from our estuaries. We can go on a route with professional guides to learn how to gather clams and be taught the techniques to spot the mollusc underground and identify them. We can conclude our field trip with the vibrant experience of seeing the auctions at the fish market. They are always full of smells and voices, since the auctions are live when they are not done electronically. If you want to live this experience or offer it as a gift you must contact the specialized companies.

POURING THE BEST CIDER

In A Estrada, a spectacular area with plenty of forest and fields, time seems to come to a halt. Here you will find several old houses turned into cider houses. We recommend you to take a short stroll among the apple trees and taste the cider afterwards. The ancient local industry has come back strongly in this region of the province of Pontevedra. The local cider producers have made an intense effort to bring back to life this traditional activity, carried out amidst the green valleys and beautiful banks of the rivers Ulla, Umia and Liñares.
