Full description
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 you visit.  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.

I was sick, but we still really enjoyed the wine tour.

Alfonso did a great job of taking us around to several wineries and giving the history of wine in Spain. Since I ended up getting sick prior to the tour, we were unsure of whether to even go, but our tour was great and we are very glad that we took the chance to go on it.

Amazing, Excellent, and Personalized

A BIG thank you to Enrique our tour guide! He was very professional, spoke excellent English, and was very informative. He was polite, fun, and very knowledgeable about wine. He had a very nice relationship with all the owners of the Vineyards. Peral wine was awesome --we LOVED Antonio the owner! Consuelo was a very lovely woman with delicious wine and olive oil. I wish we could have bought more wine, however, we are only allotted 3 bottles on our airline.

Outstanding Day Trip

Our guide Enrique was top notch, adding a lot of value and knowledge to each of our stops-he really made the trip a lot of fun. Each of three facilities we visited were fascinating and (since it was harvest time) gave us a real feel for the wine making process. The hosts at each location were highly hospitable and generous with their time & tastings- all wine tastings were accompanied by snacks ( e.g. bread, cheese, and chorizo). We had the option to buy any wine we tasted and liked. After our visits to the bodegas, we enjoyed a traditional Spanish lunch (comida) with the beverage of our choice (price was extra but well worth it!). We capped off our day with a visit to the Chinchon Castle with fabulous vistas of the country side and Madrid.
