This is fantastic and if you're a fan of wine you'd be crazy not to do it. Enrique was such a good tour guide that we booked him the next day for the Tapas tour. As a winemaker himself, he had valuable insight into anything you could want to know about wine. Best yet, the three wineries were great with affordable bottles available for purchase. I can't say enough great things about Enrique!
My boyfriend and I recently did the wine tour with Enrique and absolutely LOVED it we are in our late 20s. Venturing outside the city to visit the wineries and hear stories from the owners was amazing. The wine so yum and the pictures were awesome! Super authentic experience for us. Highly recommend already told a friend visiting!! Enrique was absolutely amazing - so knowledgable, professional, and friendly he should get a raise!
Enrique is such a wonderful guide. We visited 3 wineries and met the terrific owners who were so eager to share their knowledge and make us feel so welcome, providing lovely snacks as well as wine and information. The lunch was also terrific, a special vegetarian delight for me! What a wonderful day. I would highly recommend this tour.
We really enjoyed our wine tour. Enrique was a great guide - he was enthusiastic, well-organized, and very knowledge. We liked the variety between the wineries it was interesting seeing the royal wine cellars, then seeing smaller family-run businesses. We were impressed by how much wine we were served! The van was in good condition, and the air conditioning was great.
Wonderful, wonderful tour with Enrique. If you want a small group experience, this is it We were a group of 8. We visited 3 wineries and winemaker/owners followed by a fantastic lunch at a local spot. The wines were excellent. It was cool to interact with the winemakers - they were eager to show us how their wine was made and allow us to taste the results. Enrique was the perfect guide. He knows much about wine making and easily answered questions we had. One of the nice things is that we all met at the same spot and the tour left from there. No driving around for hours picking people up and dropping them off. Would absolutely recommend this tour.
Totally loved this tour! If you want a fabulous trip out of Madrid and you like wine, this is it! Enrique was fantastic. He was so passionate, knowledgeable and personable, the perfect guide! The 3 wineries were small and very welcoming. It was the perfect day out. I highly recommend it!
Best wine tour ever. Enrique our tour guide was great. I highly recommend this tour.
Nothing bad to say. We lucked out with this tour company. Very professional and knowledgable. We had a great experience, met a group of nice people, drank good wine and ate excellent regional food!
Thank you Enrique!!!
Just like the other reviews, this is a terrific tour. Enrique is an awesome guy. Very knowledgeable, unpretentious, and a lot of fun. You will visit 3 super small, non-commercial places and the wine is not only exceptional, but the prices are hilariously cheap. Couldn and #39;t have been a better day.
Do yourself a favor and book this tour! Our guide, QuiQue, was fantastic!! I cannot say enough positive things about this wine tour. Everyone was very nice and all the wines were delicious. This tour was a highlight of our 6 day stay in Madrid. I only wish we'd booked more tours!!
This tour was great!! Just the right amount of car, walking, sitting, and sipping!! Enrique was a wine maker himself so he was able to talk to us in the car about winemaking and tasting before we went to each vineyard. We visited three vineyards not far from Madrid 30 minutes drive and it was the right amount to see any more and the group would have been too tired. Lunch was delicious and affordable, the Spanish countryside was beautiful, and Enrique was wonderful as we're all of the vineyard managers and employees. Highly recommend this tour.
We had a wonderful time on this tour with Enrique as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and proud to share the rich history of wine in Spain and to show us three distinct wineries. The tastings at each winery were paired with a variety of cheeses and fresh breads, and we met the owners at two of the wineries and heard their stories firsthand. It was a very enjoyable day and the highlight of our time in Madrid.
Enrique was a great guide and very knowledgeable about the area. The wines and wineries were great!
Guide was very friendly and helpful. All wineries visited were lovely as were the wines.
Would definitely reconciled this tour. Was a nice small group and lots of fun
I cannot say enough about Enrique and this tour. This is well worth the time and and the price.
One really great tour. Guide was extremely knowledgeable. The wineries visited were varied and interesting. The lunch, although not provided with the tour, was recommended by our guide and was excellent.
This was the best tour of the several that I took while in Madrid. Enrique is knowledgable about the area and particularly about wine he's a winemaker himself and has also studied viticulture. We had a small group of eight and this made touring a joy. The three wineries we visited were each very different from one another, and each had its own charm, history and great wine so I couldn't pick a favourite, I liked them all. The restaurant he chose for lunch extra cost was a small local one and the food and wine were great and the price was very reasonable. I didn't feel like it was a tourist spot at all it seemed to be all locals except our little group. This tour was a wonderful introduction for me to Spanish wine and showed us some of the rural winemaking area around Madrid. It's a great tour, especially if you are fortunate enough to have Enrique as your guide.
My mother and I participated in the Wine Tour in the Madrid Wine region Madrid Rutas de Vino and we had a great time. We met with our tour guide Enrique and the other 6 tourists. We were a small group and Enrique drove us around all day. We visited 3 wineries in the South East region of Madrid, around Aranjuez.
Enrique is a winemaker himself so he knows what he is talking about! The 3 wineries we visited were very different. The first one was an old royal winery that was used during Carlos III to frabricate the royal wine. The newly reformed facilities are absolutely impressive. We tasted 2 amazing red wines, 1 tempranillo from 2006 and 1 crianza. Both were to DIE FOR! We ended up buying 3 bottles.
The second winery was a family owned winery founded in 1882. We met Antonio who recently retired and is now having his son run the business, therefore bringing new ideas to a traditional way of making wine. We got to taste some 1 white and 1 red accompanied by some home cured cheese and ham. Ended up buying 6 bottles: 2 whites, 2 rose, 2 red. The prices are very reasonable for those wines.
The last winery is a smaller winery with 93 acres of organic vines. Consuelo who manages the winery was so nice. She showed us how she makes the wine and she also let us try the organic olive oil she makes. We ended up tasting 2 reds, 1 white and 2 types of organic oil.
I fell in love with her wines, filled with lots of flavour and decently priced. I ended up buying 2 organic reds and 2 bottles of organic olive oil.
After visiting the 3 wineries, we went to a local restaurant where they served us a 4 courses menu at our expenses. Very reasonably priced at 18 euros with wine included YES MORE WINE!.
I definitely recommend this tour to everyone who is interested in wine making, having a good time, and paying for quality!
The tour to the vinos de Madrid wine region was a fascinating experience. Our guides, Jaime and Jorge, were very knowledgeable about Spain and #39;s wine regions, wineries (bodegas), and wines. They took us to three outstanding wineries, each with a unique character and atmosphere. The wine producers we met, particularly Don Antonio and Doña Consuelo were endearing. We felt treated like family. We fully enjoyed the wines we were offered and they were nicely accompanied by iberico hams, manchego cheeses, and breads. An added treat was being able to taste the exquisite olive oil produced in Doña Consuelo and #39;s property. Jaime and Jorge also added relevant history to the tour, and we even stood on a Plaza where bull fights (corridas) are still held. The scenery was also delightful. After touring the wineries, we had an appetizing lunch at a local restaurant. Also, we were lucky to enjoy the company of a very friendly and pleasant fellow traveler in this very personal tour. We would definitely repeat this tour the next time we visit the beautiful country that is Spain!
Tour was highlight of my week in Madrid. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and wine was wonderful. Would recommend anyone who visits Madrid to take this tour.
This was a great wine tour and our guide, Enrique, was very good as well! I would definitely recommend this tour!!
This was such an enjoyable day! We toured several really authentic bodegas and were made to feel like extended family while sampling a variety of wines. The lunch stop at a small, local restaurant was fabulous and I was able to enjoy some outstanding Spanish food that I probably would not have been brave enough to order on my own. Enrique was a great guide and did a wonderful job of translating throughout the day.
TEEGUY United States of ...
This was a fabulous tour! Our guide Enrique did a superb job of personalizing the tour. He knew all of the owners of the wineries we visited and was well informed and informative throughout the entire tour! This is a must do if you enjoy fine wines and enjoy personal customer service! We would do this again in a minute and highly recommend it without hesitation!!
This was a special tour. Our tour guide, Enrique, was very knowledgable and warm. We felt welcomed at all the wineries and appreciated the personal touches and attention. The wine was very good and the scenery was lovely.
