What You Can Expect

Spanish Wine Tour from Madrid

Visit a winery in the countryside near Madrid!

Leave central Madrid and head into the surrounding countryside, passing through the sleepy villages and meadows that typify the area. As you travel by air-conditioned minibus, your guide will talk to you about wines made in the area surrounding Madrid.

About 19 miles (30km) away from the capital’s center, you’ll find yourself in the heart of the Madrid's main winemaking area, known as Vinos de Madrid – a Spanish Denominación de origen (DO) territory. All wines produced here adhere to strict production guidelines so they have are able to proudly display the DO Madrid labels on their bottles – an indication of the region's high-quality wine.

The area boasts a real mix of traditional and contemporary wineries, all dotted around an area extending from the central mountain range to the Tagus River Valley. Visit three of the region’s best estates to sample quality red and white wines. Roughly halfway through your tour, your guide will give you several options for lunch (own expense).

First winery is family-run winery in the UNESCO-listed village of Aranjuez, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. The estate is also home to a butterfly farm -- one of the largest in Europe.

Second one is a fourth-generation winery located on the site of an ancient Franciscan monastery. Produces a variety of red, white, rosé, sparkling and dessert wines.

Third one is a family-run winery located in one of the most traditional winemaking villages near Madrid. Boasting 44 acres (18 hectares) of organic vineyards, the estate produces wine from grapes ripened in traditional clay vats.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Really wonderful trip and the highlight of our time in Spain. Jaime was a wonderful guide: very friendly and accommodating to our needs, and also very knowledgeable about the region and wine. We learned a lot from him about Spanish wine and wine-making in general. Each of the 3 wineries we visited was very nice with friendly and helpful hosts. Each had a different character that we learned a little from, and all of the wine was great. We couldn't believe how low the price per bottle was, either! Really a wonderful experience and highly recommended. Gracias, Jaime!

Great Tour! There was just 6 of us on this tour. We were taken in a minivan to 3 different vineyards and then out for lunch. The host was fantastic! He had so much knowledge and information to keep us entertained the entire time in the car. Each vineyard was great and each had something unique and different about them. The wine at each one was amazing. Some of the best wine I've ever had. We had about 2-3 different samples at each place. I was a little skeptical about this tour before going on it but am I ever glad we did it! One of the best tours of my whole trip! Amazing. Would recommend to everyone!
