El Camino de Santiago is a pilgrimage route across northern Spain, ending on the Atlantic coast at the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.  Pilgrims (peregrinos) originally started coming to this location from all across Europe in the 11th century to witness the reported tomb of the apostle Saint James, known as “Santiago” by Spanish Catholics. The alleged remains of Saint James were buried in this location, and centuries later, a monastery, and ultimately a cathedral, were built on the declared burial site of the apostle James. Fast-forwarding to the 21st century, hundreds of thousands of people walk El Camino each year.

VIN°VI & CO represents nine trailblazing producers along this Camino, crossing several premiere winemaking regions. Starting with ARTUKE from Rioja, to CÉSAR PRÍNCIPE in Cigales, to BELONDRADE in Rueda, followed by PARDEVALLES in León. From here, we enter the autonomous community of Galicia, beginning with SÍLICE in Ribeira Sacra, followed by our three producers located in Ribeiro, LAGAR DE SABARIZ, COTO DE GOMARIZ, and a recent addition to our portfolio, SON DE ARRIEIRO. We finish on the Atlantic coast with the wines of FENTO in Rías Baixas.

We invite you to explore our wines along El Camino de Santiago.

Buen Camino, Peregrino!
