Let us take you on a full-day excursion to wineries in the Madrid region on a wine tasting tour. Accompanied by our bilingual expert guide you’ll visit 3 wineries, taste fine local wines, and enjoy a traditional lunch - with wine.
What to Expect
The wine country of the Madrid region is just a short drive from the city center. The picturesque countryside is home to wineries that blend tradition and innovation. On this full-day tour we’ll visit 3 wineries where you’ll learn about winemaking and the history of wine in this part of Spain.
The Madrid region’s wineries have supplied the capital with wine from the time the Castilians conquered the city occupied by the Moors. Winemaking has been carried out for over 900 years on the fertile river bank area where the Manzanares, Tajuña, Jarama, Henares and Tajo rivers meet.
You’ll see the clay vats and centennial caves and the vineyards with seemingly endless rows of tempranillo grapes used in making Spain’s full-bodied red wines. You’ll also taste wines at each of the wineries we visit and enjoy a lunch of traditional regional dishes.
South of the Sierra de Guadarrama's granite foothills are the environmentally protected territories where the wine suppliers to the thirsty and growing new capital of the 16th-century Spanish Empire grew their grapes and made their wines. The wines produced here were celebrated in the writings of Cervantes and all the Golden Century writers and painters, and from the Royal Palace to every tavern in the city.
