Such a wonderful day! Jaimie was a fantastic guide, he was informative and fun. We fell in love with one of the wines purchased a bottle of on our tour when we opened it a couple days later, we contacted Jaimie to find out where we could purchase it. It was not available in stores so Jaimie talked to the lovely winery owner, Consuella, and they arranged a drop off of more wine for us to go pick up. Every part of our tour was service of this level.
We had a great time!
Great wine and Food!
Lots of laughs!
Great Tour Guide!
The wine tasting tour was amazing! Ismael was not only a good tour guide, with extensive knowledge of the wineries and processes, he also proved to be a great historian. From the minute we left Madrid he was telling us the history of the city and area. Great tour. Recommended!
Great customer service. We mixed up our times and arrived late to the meet up location. The tour had already left. We were able to contact the tour company and get a number for the guide. We called him and found that he had waited for us for 30 minutes and tried to call. We did not see his call on our phone thus we were unaware. He informed us of a meet up area and told us how to get there via train. The tour guide had the driver pick us up at the train station and take us to the first winery to meet up with the tour. He was very courteous and understanding. The tour was very informative. The wineries were very nice. We even got extras that we were not expecting. They took us to a small restaurant for a nice 3 course lunch before heading back to Madrid. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone.
Madrid wines can give the Holy Trinity of Spanish wines- Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Rueda- a run for their money!
- Madrid has an ancient winemaking tradition;
- Madrid has an Appellation of Origin, making it the only world capital to do so;
- Vinos de Madrid Appellation is a distinction other regions have not obtained; and
- Only municipalities south of Madrid have been granted Vinos de Madrid Appellation.
You will be enthralled...
WOW! What an amazing tour! The wineries are small family owned with great stories and wine. We loved the tour guide. It was really nice to spend the day with other wine enthusiasts. A MUST do for wine lovers
Our tour guide was very informative and the presentation was great. Very interesting and we enjoyed this very much.
If you want something different to do and you like your wine then this trip will keep you happy. The tour although packaged with viator is really with Gourmet Spain. Our guide was very good and had a good knowledge with the subject of wine. The wineries visited were out of the way, 3 in all one being small scale although it's wine has been growing within madrid; one on a grand scale and our last to an organic winery run by an over 70 year old lady(keep the family business running the way her parents/grandparents did). A good day out.
The guide was great and helped us with a gluten free meal too. It was a fasinating tour.
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!
Jaimie was an excellent guide and we learned so much about the area as well as the wines. The staff at the wineries were very friendly and the wines really good. The trip was capped with a wonderful lunch in a local restaurant. Really good experience
Absolutly a great experience, Our guide was the owner of the company and an expert who was passionate about the topic. In Spain you must have reservations to explore wine makers. We drank wine from the King of Spains personal vineyard.
This was an OUTSTANDING tour! Jaime, the guide, knows a great deal about Spanish wines and the Madrid region in particular. The mix of wineries was perfect -- one for history and visual impact, one to see a well-established family-run business, and then a one-woman show with some terrific wines. (The wines at all three places were very good, but the third was my niece's and my favorite.) Along the way, we learned a lot about agriculture in Spain and saw some places we would never have thought to visit. The lunch spot was also a winner. Really great tour, very highly recommended.
Very good tour and knowledgeable tour guide. Only recommendation to the guide/vineyards would be to provide cheese, chocolate or fruit with the wine tasting to assist potential customers in experiencing the flavors of the wine. Otherwise fun and enjoyable.
Great tour! The wineries were all very different but all very good. All offered wines for purchase that were very affordable but there was also no pressure to buy anything. Our group had about 16 people or so but it didn't feel too big-would definitely recommend
It was informative and fun. The wineries we visited were breathtaking.
Our guide, Ishmael, was very friendly and knowledgable about wine and the wineries and Spanish history in general. The three wineries we visited were very interesting and different. We also enjoyed a great meal at a nearby restaurant. We were a small group, which made it very easy to meet and talk to everyone.
The wine tour was the best experience of our tour. Ishmael, our guide was very friendly and accommodating. He was very knowledgeable about the wineries, family history and wine making process. It was truly a delight to meet the families running the business for 100, 200yrs.
This tour was the highlight of my trip, our guide, Ishmael was terrific and extremely knowledgeable. The wineries are unique and fabulous, and we never would have got to these places without the tour. Great day!
it was honestly the most unique wine tour that I have ever taken, and I have been on wine tours all over the world. The tour meeting place for the tour is in between the atocha and achocha refe metro at la gloria cafe. The wine making process uses giant teracotta pots to ferment the wine! The "modern" version is a cement shape version where there is no door to empty the sediment. Its a must see for any wine enthusiast. The wines served were mostly of grapes unique grapes to spain, like a 100% tempornilla. At 2 of the vineyards, we actually got to try some of the wine straight from the barrel with the winemaker. The guide for the tour was wonderful as well. He translated for the wine makers and pointed out interesting sights along the way.. The tour was well worth the price and I highly recommend it.
Very well done all around. Truly knowledgable guide, who also showed true interest in wine. The three wineries we visited gave very different views of the local region. The first was newer, just 10 years in business, but award winning and using both advanced and very hands on techniques. The ability to do barrel tasting there was great. The second had over 100 years in business, and was the largest producer of the three. Interesting operation, with antique clay pots still in use for much of the production. The third also had history, but changed hands, a fully organic winery that also produced great organic olive oil. Great choice of location for lunch as well. Highly recommended!
A fantastic tour led by the knowledgeable and friendly Ishmael. We did a little sightseeing before visiting three great wineries, learnt a great deal about grapes, varieties and wine making and tasted some lovely and affordable Spanish wines. We finished the day by sharing a fantastic meal together ( an extra cost but very good value). Highly recommended for wine lovers.
