33 rd Annual Feria Do Viño De Chantada
Sunshine and a little warm weather brought out the beginning signs of spring with flowers blooming and provided the perfect weekend for visitors from all over Galicia to take part in a very special wine event in Chantada. A long standing tradition that for 33 years has been a very special celebration and kick off to spring in the wine region of Ribeira Sacra.
It was wonderful to stroll the streets checking out the local products and to see more of the traditional art of Galicia while of course getting the perfect opportunity to taste many of the wines that make this area so very special. From its breathtaking views and incredible landscapes that help to grow the grapes in this unique microclimate cultivated in ancient times by the romans you will have the chance to taste with every sip the FANTASTIC FLAVORS of Ribeira Sacra.
Muchas gracias – a very special thank you to local winemakers and friends for making such a wonderful and very memorable first visit for me to the Wine Festival of Chantada. It was so much fun seeing and wine tasting with Oscar Gonzalez Rizo of Via Romana Adegas e Viñedos, Camilo Rodriguez of Cabo Do Mundo Adega, and Primi of Sabatelius Lareu Adega.
