Prada, as usual in his best mood


Prada, as usual in his best mood




Palacio de Canedo
It is at the Palace of Canedo where we find both the winery and vineyard acreage devoted to Prada with care to produce their wines.
This manor house is one of the best examples of palatial architecture Bierzo S. XVIII. Completely rebuilt by its current owner, Jose Luis Prada and his wife, Flor, both have managed to make the most of the building, making it a magical place, a resort with restaurant, rooms, shop, and of course, winery.







Wine sleeps, please talk in a low voice

The Ribeira Sacra term meaning " sacred shore " , and seems to come from Latin. And at the edge of the two most iconic rivers Galicia , the river Miño and Sil, this region is located between the provinces of Lugo and Ourense. The situation of their terraced vineyards , located on the banks of both rivers , and with slopes of up to 80 % make this land a paradise.

A meeting point not only for locals but for pilgrims who make of this spot their local reference as it passes through this city of Roman origin. El Grifo is set on the Camino de Santiago, perhaps in one of the most beautiful squares in the French Way.
