The area is known as the lower Rias Baixas and Baixo Miño, it is the coastline that follows down from Vigo to A Guarda -the last village of the Galician coast before reaching Northern Portugal- Then the Miño river flows into the Atlantic Ocean separating Galicia from Portugal.

We will enjoy the spectacular view from the top of a Celtic Hill-fort while having a seafood lunch with around 8 different types of seafood, and of course accompanied by the local Rosal wine. This area, apart from the scenery, offers fabulous wines, which are grown in the O Rosal valley a sub-zone of the D.O. Rias Baixas. Here they make Albariño wine as well as the local Rosal wines which are a blend of different local grape varieties including Abariño. We will take detailed tour of one of the most important wineries of the area and try the difference between the 2 types of wines.

Before ending our day we will visit the two bordering cities, 1st of all Tui, which posses a well resorted historic quarter and a Fortified Cathedral also visited by many Pilgrimage on their way to Santiago coming from Portugal.
