If you are thinking of making a special and different gift, giving wine tourism in Galicia is always a good option, and even more so if it is a wine tourism plan in the Rías Baixas. At Pazo Baión we have this very much in mind and that is why we have prepared different gift vouchers with visits to our winery located in a spectacular historical property in the heart of the Salnés Valley, origin of the Albariño wines from the D.O. Rías Baixas.
With these vouchers you will be able to choose, among the 6 tour modalities that we have designed, which one best suits the type of experience you want to give away. In all of them you can discover, with the help of our team, the peculiarities of our property and the work we do to make unique and top quality albariños, delving into the history of the winery and tasting different wines from our catalog. The tours can even be guiaded by one of our winemakers!
However, giving wine tourism is much more than going to a winery to taste its wines: it is getting into the experience of slow tourism and immersing yourself in a different way in the culture and gastronomy of a community. Even more in Galicia, where wine is also an important economic engine. This is especially palpable in our region, O Salnés, and in the Arousa estuary, where some of the best fish and seafood in the world are caught, and which are the pairing par excellence of the Albariño wines we make.
But beyond this, giving a visit to our winery in Vilanova de Arousa is also giving a tour through part of the history of Galicia, since our pazo was home to some of the most important noble families in the community such as the Figueroa, the Camba or the Soutomaior; and also of important returned emigrants like Don Alfonso Fojo. In the 70s, the first technical plantation of Albariño wine was carried out on the property, so today tourist will find an impressive 22-hectare vineyard with vines that exceed 40 years of history, in a unique natural environment It is characterized by the green of our palm grove, the sound of the fountains or by buildings such as our pazo and its unmistakable battlements or the old dovecote, now converted into a unique tasting room.
Definetly, when you deliver one of the Pazo Baión gift vouchers you are giving an unforgettable experience for any lover of history, architecture, art, culture or gastronomy; and a perfect day of tourism to get to know a part of the heart of Galicia and the Rías Baixas differently. We are looking forward to your visits!
