70,000 m2 in the Ribeira Sacra
Around the house, a plot of 7 hectares all on one plot. Castro de Carballedo is in the Ribeira Sacra, about 10 km from the Os Peares reservoir. Ribeira Sacra could be defined as one of the best-kept secrets of interior Galicia.
This destination is made up of a set of twenty municipalities of the south of the province of Lugo and the north of the province of Ourense, which includes Castro de Carballedo, with the fluvial course of the rivers Miño, Sil and Cabe as a common element. It offers a wide variety of recreational and gastronomic experiences, and a tremendous range of local products of the highest quality distinguished with guarantee marks of their origin.
The wine is the hallmark of this privileged area of Galicia. The production of this drink, as well as the cultivation of the vine, was introduced by the Roman colonists in these lands more than two thousand years ago. Later it was the Christian monks who took over from this activity and nowadays its production continues to be the economic engine of the region.
In the elaboration of the wine, the varieties of godello, albariño and treixadura grapes for white wines and mencía, brecellao and merenzao for red wines stand out. They are mainly young wines, although red wines are also produced.
Wine lovers have in the Ribeira Sacra a paradise to take advantage of, as they can make guided tours of wineries, wine tastings and learn about the production of the wines. In addition, there are also places like the Monforte Wine Museum or the Vinobus, which offer other ways to get closer to this world.
