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.

Ismael was a great guide. He was funny, entertaining, and knowledgeable about the history and the culture. The tour felt very small and private - it was so fascinating to see small local wineries and how they are using historical techniques. This tour was fun to meet new people and try great food and wine.

Highly Recommended! Great tour! A lot of knowledge, seen a lot, experienced a lot, tasted a lot! The only thing that bothered us a little was that it was a relatively large group of 30 people. We would have been willing to pay more for a smaller group. But that's a matter of opinion!

We had so much fun on this trip. Learned a lot about the wine in the Madrid area and had a lot of fun interacting with others on the trip. Would definitely recommend. They provide a looot of wine. I'd say approximately 6+ glasses throughout the duration of the experience.
