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.

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.
