Monforte is the capital of the Ribeira Sacra, that means that Monforte is wine and to go out for a glass of wine is a popular custom. The wines of the D.O. Ribeira Sacra can be enjoyed in any bar or cafeteria in the city, as well as being available in the restaurants. Our wines have a very special character as a result of the fruity grapes and of the unique landscape that reveals itself in the flavours in your glass. Going out for a glass of wine is typical at 13.30 when friends or families meet up in bars famous for their home-made tapas and enjoy a delicious glass of Mencía or Godello wine. Going out for a drink and a tapa has grown in its quality and variety over the years and has generated a new activity that takes place annually and which much of the population takes part in, the Cume Tapas. During this event around 15 bars and restaurants offer a special tapa for the price of 1 euro. During this celebration of tapas up to 30,000 tapas are served in Monforte. If you wish to buy any of the wines from the D.O. Ribeira Sacra, they can be found in the wine shop in the Centro del Vino in Calle del Comercio.
