Wines & Shrines in Galicia
Deluxe Tour

For a thousand years, pilgrims have traveled to this remote northwest corner of Galicia, in Spain, to the great shrine at Santiago. A thousand years ago, French and German monks were among the first travelers on this sacred road, and they carried precious vinestocks with them. The first vineyards grew around monastic communities along the Way. Today Galicia produces Spain's most expensive grape, the albariño, and with it some of the country's most prized wines. This Celtic corner of the country also produces wines from other varietals in its several DOs/denomicaciones de origen. Follow the grape in Galicia and you'll explore Celtic hill forts, ancient dolmens, coastal dunes and glorious beaches, historic villages and great monuments, and along the road hear Celtic music, taste wines from the barrel in small family-owned bodegas, dine like a bishop in some of the area's most select restaurants, and sleep like a king in the paradors of this remote corner of Iberia.

All inclusive, land only
(departure dates by arrangement)
