Bodegas del Palacio de Fefinanes is a winery located in a palace, in the town called Cambados, in Pontevedra Province, in Galicia Region, in the North of Spain. Winery is located inside the palace of Fefiñans, which was built in the 16th Century. The palace is located in a square, where you can see also a church and a tower in a very nice complex. We visited this place and we could walk around vineyards or some rooms of the palace, where we could learn about the history of the place. In the shop of the winery, we tasted some liqueurs, which are very good. Very nice place.

Actually, I did not go there to visit the wineries of good Albariño wine that are tasted there.
I went to see the building that sits in one of the best squares in Cambados, the largest and busiest
The palace, in the shape of an "L", has a crenellated watchtower on its shorter arm. In the outer corners of the building, the large circular balconies and the Renaissance decoration on the windows stand out. In the eastern corner of the wall there is an independent tower called Torre del Homenaje, on the façade of which there is a curious inscription that collects the values ​​of the lords of Fefiñanes and a baroque arch-bridge at the north end of the pazo
Strolling through its rooms decorated with a renaissance atmosphere, and enjoying its immense garden is a charm and should not be missed.

Fefinanes offers two tours, one of the winery, one of Gil Armada winery, and another of the actual building/palacio of Fefinanes. The winery tour was available in English, the palacio only in Spanish. Tourist Information booked the tour for us. It was a bit tricky trying to determine which entrance was for the palacio tour and which for the winery tour, but we eventually figured it out. The palacio was lovely, though it was difficult for us, with limited Spanish, to understand it all. The winery was also lovely, and incredibly, located right in town. The winery tour had 3 price levels, based on how many wines you prefer to taste; I thought it was a bit expensive.

Overall a very interesting visit, whilst I understand Spanish, my preference would have been an English tour hence my 4 ilo 5, unfortunately wasn't able to arrange an English tour on the day.

Very knowledgeable and informative guide and was happy to answer all questions posed by the group.

A beautiful bulding which at one time was a residence is now home to a bodega of Albariño wine. There is a guided tour available of the premises then it is possible to try from 1-3 different types of Albariño. Sampling 1 wine costs 5€. We were accompanied by Carmen on the visit who was very well informed of the history of the family business and the processing of the grape. Well worth the visit to see such a beautiful building and its grounds with vines up to 100 yrs old too. The Palace is right in the heart of the pretty town of Cambados.

The reviews here are all over the place regarding availability and cost of this tour, so I thought it'd be helpful to run down our experience. We walked in without reservations shortly after they reopened from the afternoon break. Maybe we were lucky that a small group had already set up a tour that afternoon, but it was no problem to just add us to the previously scheduled tour. The cost was based on the number of wines tasted--between $5 and $12, depending on whether you taste one, two, or three wines. We would highly recommend trying all three. They are three very different production processes, all three were delicious, and it was very interesting to compare the three wines (a fresh drink now style, an oaked style, and one produced with extended lees contact).

Our tour was very detailed and walked through the grounds and winemaking facilities. The huge old vines (some ~100 years old) were definitely a highlight. The tour was supposed to be in Spanish, but there were a ton of interesting facts that we couldn't pick up on with our terrible Spanish skills. The guide (and our Spanish-speaking tour mates) were very patient and relayed all the information in very good English.

Overall, this was a great tour conducted right in the heart of the historical core that we would highly recommend.

Funny! After waiting a while the girl in the shop turned out to be fluent in Dutch. And although we got the story right, it didn't mean any discount ;-) We had the option of gathering more people and form a group and pay €5 or pay €12 each for a private tasting. The latter is what we did and we liked it very much. Explanation was good, perfectly hosted, well done! We tasted the three wines and although we did so in France quite often, we only now realized that not all wine makers grow their own grapes. This winemaker is one of them, they just make wine. At the end of our tour we bought all three of the wines, but in my opinion they are relatively expensive. Varying from €12 (basic Albariño) to €25 for the three year old wine of which the 2014 version was a price winner (but unfortunately sold out, so we had to go with the 2015 one). To be perfectly honest, I bought extremely nice bourgognes in Chablis for less. Nevertheless, a nice experience I can recommend.

We were driving from Portugal to Santiago and decided to detour slightly to visit the home of Albarino. It's a nice town and we chose Palacio de Fefinanes to do a tasting. The pricing for the tour and to taste their 3 wines when not part of a group was something utterly outrageous like EUR48 but after phoning the owner the lady working there was able to offer the two of us the group price of EUR12 per head. Still expensive, but it was a nice tour and the wines were really great. On this basis I would recommend coming here.

Whether you are interested in wine or not, this is worth a visit. Firstly it is in a beautiful and convenient location in Cambados. Secondly it has a fascinating history. Thirdly the three different Albariño wines are really good and you should find one you like. Lastly the staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and speak good English. I really enjoyed my visit.
