We are planning to spend just 2 days/1 night in the Ourense and Bierzo regions on the way from the Rias Baixas to Leon. I am sure this is not enough time but we are hoping to get a taste so that we can come back on our next trip.
I'd like to find a good typical Galician restaurant ("rustic" perhaps) for lunch or dinner and one bodega in the Ribeira Sacra region (will to drive up to 1 hour) and the same in El Bierzo (a restaurant typical of the food of the region and a bodega). With respect to bodegas, we enjoy smaller family owned operations (which might characterize most bodegas in the region) if they are open to public visits. Our Spanish is good enough to get something out of a tour.
Greatly appreciate any suggestions you have.
